Bill and Susan were only married for a little over a year when Bill started realizing that he didn't really love his new bride anymore. Bill ran an insurance business that was doing really well and always stayed longer hours than needed, and his new bride was alone in a big empty house that should have been full of love. Susan tried her best to get Bill to notice her more, but it was no use. Bill started sleeping on the couch and sometimes would come home later than any normal husband would that loved his wife.

One night Susan got out of bed and went downstairs to the living room where Bill was sleeping.

Bill replied, "Are you crazy, if someone did what I've done to you, I would want them dead."

"I can't help it, I'm crazy in love with you." replied Susan.
She asked Bill, "Would you like another beer?"

Bill replied, "You bet."

Susan went and got her cheating husband a beer out of the refrigerator, but instead of rushing back to him with a beer in hand she decided...
