A couple was celebrating their 50th anniversary when the host at the party asked them about the secret to their marriage. The husband replied that it was simple and they never had a single argument in all of their married days together. He went on to say that they were dirt poor when they got engaged. They came from some rough Montana territory. Both of their families did the best they could, raising cattle on adjacent ranches. Not wanting to put an added burden on their families, they decided to elope. So early one morning, they saddled up their respective horses and met at the border of their properties to continue toward the nearest Justice of the Peace to tie the knot. On the way, the bride to be met with some stubbornness out of her horse. She hopped out of the saddle, drew her Colt revolver, cocked the hammer and put the gun to the horses head. She said, "OK Boy, this is your first chance!" The horse whinnied in a high pitch and the rider remounted and continued. Not far along the path, it happened a second time. With the same resolve, and the gun to the horses head, she said, "OK Boy, this is your second chance!" Again the horse whinnied. She remounted and they were on their way. Not too far along and the old horse stopped again. This time the bride to be jumped off her horse and without a warning, She drew and cocked the Colt and shot the horse graveyard dead! The groom to be looked on in total fear and amazement. He jumped off his horse and got all up in his fiances face! "What in the name of God are you doing!?!? You cant just up and shoot a horse like that!!! Your out of your stark crazy mind!!!" And without a single hitch in her drawl, she drew her Colt and said, "OK Boy, this is your first chance!!!"
And that, ole Pops declared was why they never had a single argument in their married life!
