Just like Marriage

Nathan spent the whole autumn sowing and preparing his garden. In the spring, the flowers opened, and Nathan noticed a few dandelions that he had not planted.

Nathan pulled them up. But the seeds had already spread, and others grew. He tried to find a poison that would kill only dandelions. An expert told him that any poison would end up killing all the other flowers too. In despair, Nathan sought help from a gardener.

"It's just like marriage," said the gardener. "Along with the good things, there are always a few inconveniences."

"What should I do, then?"

"Nothing. They may not be the flowers you intended to have, but they are still part of the garden."
