An eligible bachelor decided that he should have only the most perfect woman as his life partner. He looked around in his home town and finding none, decided to travel the world in search of one. After several years of wandering, he returned home tired and impoverished. A concerned neighbour asked him whether it was true that in spite of travelling through the most advanced cultures of the globe he had not come across a single perfect female.
“Well, to tell you the truth, I did find a perfect woman once.”
“What happened then?”
“I asked her if she would marry me. She spent some time with me, then one day confessed that she would not take me as her life partner. The reason she gave was simple: she was looking for a perfect man.”
A man asked his father-in-law, “Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?”
The father-in-law answered in a smile, “Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings or when she does something wrong. Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you.”
