My husband died a month ago, the woman says.
Do you know how long we were married? Fifty-four years.
You are surprised? Yes, because nowadays such a long marriage is rare.
And do you know why? Because people today are egoists. They think only of themselves. They want what they want.
How did Paolo and I stay together for 54 years? I cooked him whatever he wanted. If he had a hankering for spaghetti carbonara, I made it.
And Paolo never ever complained about anything I cooked.
