Irish humour… marriage

Marriage provides a rich vein of material for comedians. Whether it’s the blushing bride in her beautiful wedding dress, the nervous groom, uncomfortable in his tuxedo, the price of the wedding ring or the cost of the wedding reception – they’re all great sources of humour.

Then there’s the everyday trials and tribulations of married life itself. The battle of wits between husband and wife have inspired countless jokes and stories. These are some of our favourites. Irish joke about marriage. Image copyright Ireland Calling

Her husband says: “Looks like he’s still celebrating!”

His dad replies: “The bride is in white because she’s happy and this is the happiest day of her life.”
The boy thinks about this, and then says: “Well then, why is the man wearing black?”

A man and woman who’d never met are travelling in the same sleeping carriage of a train.
After some embarrassment, they both go to bed, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower.
A few minutes later, the woman leans over and says: “I’m awfully cold – would you mind passing me another blanket.”
The man leans out smiling and says: “I’ve got a better idea, let’s pretend we’re married.”
“Why not” giggles the woman.
“Good” he replies, “get your own blanket.”
