    A man and a woman were married for 40 years. When they
    first got married the man said, "I am putting a box under the bed. You
    must promise never to look in it." In all their 40 years of marriage
    the woman never looked.

    However on the afternoon of their 40th anniversary curiosity got the
    best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside. In the box were
    3 empty beer bottles and $1954.25 in small bills. She closed the box
    and put it back under the bed. Now that she knew what was in the box,
    she was doubly curious as to why.

    That evening they were out for a special dinner at their favorite
    restaurant. After dinner the woman could no longer contain her
    curiosity and she confessed, saying, "I am so sorry. For all these
    years I kept my promise and never looked. However today the temptation
    was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know why do you keep the
    bottles in the box?"

    The man thought for a while and said, "I guess after all these
    wonderful years you deserve to know the truth: Whenever I was
    unfaithful to you I put an empty beer bottle in the box under the bed
    to remind myself not to do it again."

    The woman was shocked, but said, "I am very disappointed and saddened,
    but I guess after all those years away from home on the road,
    temptation does happen. And I guess that 3 times is not that bad
    considering the years." They hugged and made their peace.

    A little while later, the woman asked the man, "Why do you have all
    that money in the box?" To which the man answered, "Whenever the box
    filled with empties, I cashed them in."
