Something Real.

No. I didn’t write this.

I found this on Facebook and I thought to share ‘cos it made me feel good. I put this up to encourage all the real responsible men out there. Married or single, the world is yours. Your time is coming.


To the ladies who have a man like the one below – love him. That kind of man is a rarity these days – but there are.


A Husband comes home drunk, vomits and falls down on the floor. Wife gets him up and cleans everything.

Next day when he gets up he expects her to be really angry with him. He braces for a fight, but finds a note near the table.

“Honey, your favorite breakfast is ready on the table, I had to leave early to buy groceries. I’ll come running back to you, my love. I love you.

Surprised, he asks his son, “What happened last night?”

The Son replies, “When mom got you up to bed and tried removing your boots and shirt. You were dead drunk and you said,

“Hey Lady! Leave Me Alone. I’m Married!!”


Ladies – what do you think? Would you take a man like that regardless of his drinking?

  1. Depends on the missing pieces of the story. Like why he got drunk in the first place; if he was in the habit of getting drunk etc etc
    Faithfulness is not the only thing that matters either way.

    • Hmm! You’re so correct!

      However, ‘faithfulness’ seems to be the biggest issue in marriages these days – no?

      Thank you!

        Faithfulness is one of the many issues. So I agree with Tiwaladeo, the story is incomplete! Drunkeness is a big thing, I would hate to find my husband in a gutter some day from getting drunk, I had a neighbour like that once (bless his wife’s heart).

  2. I would. But, why the drunkeness?! No relationship is perfect tho.

    • Another line of thought!

      Thank you so much!

      • And then, this story strikes a cord. It reminds me of my grandpa. He used to be a drinkard, but my grandma loved him to pieces. No matter how drunk he was, the last thing he ever did was to cheat on her or beat her when he managed to find his way home. Sometimes, it was as bad as him falling into the gutter. My grandma would never touch any food until her husband returned home. Even if it was two in the morning he returned and she hadn’t had any food since the previous morning. On the day he died, she followed too.

        Such love! I think life’s just too complex for us to understand fully and searching for perfection. But, that doesn’t also mean we should be silly.

  5. That’s real nice of the man, whether drunk or not, to be so faithful to his wife. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. The wife’s act speaks volumes. It says wife values fidelity more than drunken disorderly conduct!

    • I think so too! But do you think its better?

      June 18, 2013 at 6:03 am

      • The drunk are incapable of more sinning! Less sinning is better, so QED!

      • Hmmm!

        June 19, 2013 at 8:17 am

    • But what do you think? Is she smart or silly…?

    No I can’t.
    He’s already shortened his life span, so for how long will I have him?

    • Happy for twenty years – truly happy.

      Sad for forty years. Truly sad.

      Your choice.
