Feel blue, say "I do" as weddings boost mood: study

Full story: Reuters

Lonely? Feeling low? Try taking a walk -- down the aisle. Getting married enhances mental health, especially if you're depressed, according to a new U.S. study.

reminds me of an old joke:

"My wife and I used to be really happy"

-'What happened?'

"We met!"

here's another one - just copied it off an e-mail:

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker-function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.

MAN: "Hello"
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
MAN: "Yes"
WOMAN: "I am at the Mall now and found this beautiful leather coat.
It's only R1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure,..go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2005 models. I saw one I really liked"
MAN: "How much?"
WOMAN: "R390,000"
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN:"Great! Oh, and one more thing .... The house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking R950,000"
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer of R900,000.
They will probably take it. If not, we can go the extra 50 thousand. If it's really a pretty good price."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!!"
MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."

The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape.....

He smiles and ask: "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"

SORRY, I COULDN'T RESIST GIVING U THIS:

i LOVE IT.

A guy is driving around Dublin and he sees a sign in front of a house:

Talking Dog For Sale."
He rings the bell and the owner tells him the
dog is in the backyard.

the guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador sitting there.

"You talk?" he asks.
"Yes," the Lab replies.

"So, what's the story?"

The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I
was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the Garda
about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from country
to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one
figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable
spies for eight years running."

"But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't
getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the
airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious
characters and listening in."

"I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of
medals.
I got married, had a load of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for
the dog.
"Ten euro," the man says.
"Ten euro?
This dog is amazin'.
Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a liar.
He never did any of that sh1te."
