Little Johnny and Jenny are only 10 years old, but they know they are in love. One day they decide that they want to get married, so Johnny goes to Jenny’s father to ask him for her hand.
Johnny bravely walks up to him and says, “Mr. Smith, me and Jenny 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 Johnny, you are only 10.. Where will you two live?”
Without even taking a moment to think about it, Johnny replies, “In Jenny’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 Jenny.”
Again, Johnny instantly replies, “Our allowance, Jenny 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 Johnny has put so much thought into this.
“Well Johnny, 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?”
Johnny just shrugs his shoulders and says, “Well, we’ve been lucky so far.”
Cute story Ramana, but unfortunately it is not too far from the truth these days.
