Average Jane



Maternal Wisdom FTW

Mom’s in town. Over a lovely early Spring hot chocolate at the ice cream shop around the corner, mom and I had a heart to heart:

Average Jane: Why get married?! I mean, why bother? Would you get into a car knowing you’d crash over half the time? Would you walk around outside knowing half the time you’d get struck by lightning? Would you?!? Why get married, then? Why?

Mom: There are some really big tax advantages to marriage.

Yup. That’s my mom.

    Hello to MommyKnish for me please!!

    See you soon?!

    Hugs!

    MommyKnish surely sends her “hellos” to you, too! And yes, of course you’ll see me soon. If you were ever in town and didn’t play with me I’d come out to that God forsaken town of yours and beat you silly 🙂

    So, is your mom seeing anyone?

    My father, to her chagrin.

  4. Well, I don’t know about you, but marriage can be good. I’d have someone to cook for me and do my laundry and to have sex with when my mistress is having her period. When you throw in the tax benefits, it seems like a no brainer to me.

    The tax benefits explain a lot, too.
