Twenty Years Prison Marriage

 Funny Twenty Years In Prison Marriage Joke

Amanda woke to an empty bed.  Alarmed, she put on her gown and headed downstairs to look for her husband.  She found him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of hot cocoa in front of him, staring vacantly at the wall.

"What's the matter, dear?" she asked, stepping into the room. "Why are you down here at this time of night!?"

Her husband looked up suddently, "Oh, hello Amanda. Did you know that it's the 20th Anniversary of the day we met?"

She couldn't believe he had remembered and started to well up with tears.

Her husband continued, "Do you remember, twenty years ago, when we started dating? I was eighteen and you were only fifteen."

She nodded, unable to speak.

Her husband paused.  The words were not coming easily.  "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?"

"Yes, I remember," said Amand, smiling as she lowered herself into a chair beside him and took his hand tenderly into her own.

He continued, "Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, 'Either you marry my daughter or I will make sure you spend the next twenty years in prison?'"

"I remember that too," she replied softly.

Her husband sighed, wiped a tear from his cheek, and said, "I would have gotten out today."
