There is a couple who were both hardworking, having devoted their entire golden age to build up their family. The husband was just an ordinary worker eking out a living. On the contrary, the wife had earned much more so she saved a lot for their retirement. While the wife was very busy with her career, the responsibility of taking care the family fell on the husband until their kids had all grown up and lived independently.
Now they both retired. But there is always something left in the wife's mind. She thought that the husband could now have a decent retirement merely because of her ability. In her eyes, the man is incapable of securing her life. She is the only contributor to the family. With the thought that she owes all the savings, she controls all the wealth. The husband has to be a dependant waiting for allotment.
One day, a young man asks him why he can put up with such an unfair situation. After all, he has devoted his entire life to the family. He gently replies, "Contribution to a family does not matter how much money you have saved or earned. It matters how much care, love, and tolerance you have put on your family, especially on your partner. In the end, she is the only possession you left walking the rest of your life with you."
