Regardless of one's age, you simply should always plan ahead:
The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because
she had just gotten married -- for the fourth time.
The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it
felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's
'He's a funeral director,' she answered.
'Interesting,' the newsman thought.
He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about
her first three husbands and what they did for a living.
She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years.
After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered
proudly, explaining that she'd first married a banker when she was
in her early 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, later
on a preacher when in her 60's, and now in her 80's, a funeral director.
The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she
had married four men with such diverse careers.
She smiled and explained, 'I married one for the money, two for the
show, three to get ready, and four to go.'
