You may be married if...

1. your refrigerator is always full but you cannot find any food that you recognize.

2. instead of a dowry, you got the whole bill for the wedding and honeymoon.

3. you are expected to be able to read her mind just by watching her eyebrows move up and down and which way her lips are pointed.

4. all her relatives think your name is Joe.

5. she eats her fruit with giant salt crystals and her fried chicken with ketchup.

6. you try to call her up on the phone and someone tells you "for a while" and you want to know "for a while, what??"

7. your phone bills are all international and average 3 hours per call.

8. the rice cooker is on 24 hours a day and uses up 50% of your electric and food budget.

9. on your first trip to the Philippines, you have 18 giant boxes that weigh 1000 pounds each and your "carry on" luggage requires a small forklift truck.the same luggage is over filled with things that cost an average of 15 cents each like old magazines and M&Ms -- the worst part is when you get off the plane, the same stuff you've been hauling around half way around the world is available in every store in the airport for half the price!

10. the first time she's pregnant you have to go out at 4:00 in the morning looking for some weird type of greasy sausages, green mangoes and salted shrimp. <>

11. everything in your house was bought on sale, even if you don't need it .. as long as it was a "bargain" is all that matters.

12. your daughter gets her ears pierced when she's 2 minutes old but your sons are not circumcised until they turn 21.

13. you hire a nanny because your wife thinks you clean mirrors with soap and a sponge and the nanny seems cheaper than a divorce.

14. you were married 5 years before she explained to you that "ARAY!" doesn't mean "ooh, baby!"

15. she can eat and talk at the same time, in fact that's her especialty!

16. her favorite meal is leftovers, her favorite fancy dessert is Jello mold and for something REALLY romantic, she'll offer you a halo-halo with 2 straws.

17. she and the kids are always saying "Daddy made "utot" and you still don't know what it means but they think it's pretty funny. (daddy made "uto" fart in English)

18. other than eyebrow raising and lip puckering, her next most expressive form of communication is grunts and pssst's

19. your kitchen table has a merry-go-round in the middle.

20. all your place settings has the silverware backwards and there are no knives.

21. she uses an umbrella even if its not raining.

22. she washes her hair with a bucket and her car with a broom.

23. her idea of edifying reading is gossip magazines.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: you may hear her singing anywere in your house even your radio's off... LOL

(Don't take it seriously)
