Good advice

I try to refrain from giving advice when I am preparing a couple for marriage; after all, they've got to live with each other, not me. But I just can't help but say the occasional thing like this.

Attention, married men:

The easiest way to make your wife happy is, go to church with her. Nothing else you do -- absolutely nothing -- will pay as great a dividend for as little effort. So get up off your duffs and find a pew. See if she doesn't love you for it!
