The Odd Couple

An elderly couple appears before a judge.

"Your honor, we want a divorce," says the husband.

"A divorce?" asks the judge, "How old are you?"

"I'm 93. She's 89."

"And how long have you been married?"

"65 years."

"And after 65 years, NOW you want a divorce?"

"We would have done it sooner," says the man, "but we decided to wait until the children were dead."
