The Secret of a Long Marriage

​SCRIPT

Mr. and Mrs. Hashimoto have been married for 50 years.

Q:   What’s the secret of a long marriage?
H:   Oh, it’s quite easy and simple.
       We take some time to go out two evenings a week.
       We have a quiet dinner, soft music, some candlelight.
       And we stay at a restaurant as long as we want.
       Nobody interrupts us.
Q:   I see. And when do you go out?
H:   My wife goes out on Wednesdays and I go out on Fridays.
