At The Murugan Temple in East-ham, London, they have weekly husband's marriage seminars.
At the session last week, the priest asked one Muthusamy, who said he was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, ‘‘to take a few minutes and share some insight secret how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years’’.
Muthusamy replied to the assembled husbands, "Well, I've tried to treat her nice, spend money on her, bought her enough jewellery and sarees, but best of all is, I took her to Chennai, India for the 25th anniversary!"
The priest responded, ‘‘Muthusamy, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning, for your wife for your 50th anniversary?’’
Muthusamy proudly replied, “I’m going back to Chennai to pick her up."
