Woman with Sense of Humour Marries 23 Times
Linda Wolfe, aged 68, who was first married at the age of 16, admits she became 'addicted to the romance' of getting hitched. Will and Guy note that grandmother, with 23 ex-husbands, has been recognised as the most married woman in the world. Mrs Wolfe from Anderson, Indiana, USA can no longer list her husbands in order but remembers the nicest was a Mr George Scott, her first and, at seven years, her longest marriage.
We find it amusing to record that she has been single now for 12 years, her longest stint unmarried since childhood, 'But I would get married again,' she told us laughing, 'because, you know, it gets lonely.'

A Pack of Playing Cards?

Hooligans had set fire to a farmer's haystack which then spread to his barn.
While he surveyed the wreckage, his wife 'phoned their insurance company and asked them to send a check for £30,000, [$60,000 USD] the amount of insurance on the barn.
'We don't give you the money,' a company official explained. We replace the barn and all the equipment in it.'
'In that case,' replied the wife, 'cancel the policy I have on my husband.'
If Your Wife is a Nag
Will and Guy have discovered an allegedly true but outrageous marriage story.
Hitting on the novel idea that he could end his wife's incessant nagging by giving her a good scare, Hungarian Jake Fen built an elaborate harness to make it look as if he had hanged himself. When his wife came home and saw him she fainted.
Apparently on hearing a disturbance their neighbour came over and, finding what she thought were two corpses, seized the opportunity to loot the place.
As she was leaving the room, her arms laden, the outraged and suspended Mr Fen kicked her stoutly in the backside. This so surprised the lady that she dropped dead of a heart attack.
We can confirm that Mr Fen was acquitted of manslaughter and he and his wife have been reconciled.

'Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right, and the other is usually the husband.'
When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. Somehow I always had something else to take care of first: the truck, the car, email, fishing, always something more important to me.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a few minutes. When I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.
'When you finish cutting the grass,' I said, 'you might as well sweep the driveway.'
The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
Marriage Over the Years
Some people have strange views on the subject of marriage
An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite Italian anisette sprinkle cookies wafting up the stairs.
Gathering his remaining strength, he lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands he crawled downstairs. With laboured breath, he leaned against the doorframe, gazing into the kitchen. Where it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favourite anisette sprinkled cookies.
Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted Italian wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?
Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the cookie was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life.
The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife..... 'Back off!' she said, 'they're for the funeral.'

A Real-life Humorous Marriage
A Love Story from Cornwall, England
Jane and Mark Sharp-Hall's wedding was so very different since they and their guests all dressed up as characters from the novel 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (commonly shortened to 'Alice in Wonderland').
Alice and the White Rabbit
They were married dressed as Alice and the White Rabbit from * Carroll's 1865 novel, while the best man came as the Mad Hatter and other guests played the Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat, Caterpillar and 28 playing cards.
'This is the second time round for both of us and we did it traditionally the last time so we thought we'd do everything a bit differently this time,' said Mrs Sharp-Hall, who spent more than a year creating the costumes.
* Alias of English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
The couple married underground at Poldark Mine in Cornwall, where they also enjoyed a Mad Hatter-inspired tea party - including little 'Eat Me'cakes.
