Togetherness is important...
*A young couple had neighbours who were senior citizens, the husband around 80 years old & the wife about 75 years.*

*The young couple were very fond of the elderly couple & made it a point to visit them & have coffee with them every Sunday.*

*They observed that the old man would always ask the old lady to make coffee & the old lady would bring the coffee bottle to her husband to be opened, every time.*

*The thoughtful young man gifted the old man with a coffee maker & the lady a gadget, to easily open the bottle, & showed them how to use it.*

*On their next visit, the old man again asked the old lady to make coffee & the lady once again brought the bottle for her husband to open!*

*The young couple was amazed! Had they forgotten about the coffee maker & the gadget?*

*When the opportunity arose to be alone with the old lady & the man they quizzed them about this. And their reply made them speechless.....*.

*He said, ''Oh yes! I can use the coffee maker & make the coffee myself even without the coffee maker, but I don’t, because I want her to feel I am dependent on her in my life. She still has skills I have not learnt & she is very important for my survival & togetherness is the main ingredient of our marriage.*

*While she said: "Oh! I can open the bottle myself, even without your gadget! But I get him to open it so he feels he is still stronger than I am & thus the man of our home & that he remains useful to me as always, that I still depend on him; that togetherness is the main ingredient of any marriage.*

*We don't have many more years of life in us, & togetherness is of utmost importance!"*
