Little Bruce and Margaret are only 10 years old, but they know they are in love. One day they decide that they want to get married, so Bruce goes to Margaret’s father to ask him for her hand.
Bruce bravely walks up to him and says,
—Mr. Smith, me and Margaret are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage.
Thinking that this was just the cutest thing, Mr. Smith replies,
—Well Bruce, you are only 10.. Where will you two live?
Without even taking a moment to think about it, Bruce replies,
—In Margaret’s room. It’s bigger than mine and we can both fit there nicely.
Still thinking this is just adorable, Mr. Smith says with a huge grin,
—Okay, then how will you live? You’re not old enough to get a job. You’ll need to support Margaret.
Again, Bruce instantly replies,
—Our allowance, Margaret makes five bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That’s about 60 bucks a month, so that should do us just fine.
Mr. Smith is impressed: Bruce has put so much thought into this.
—Well Bruce, it seems like you have everything figured out. I just have one more question. What will you do if the two of you should have little children of your own?
Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says,
—Well, we’ve been lucky so far.
Mr. Smith no longer thinks this little shit is adorable.
