Mathematical truth table for XNOR gate
In an integrated circuit with a light bulb, this means that the light bulb will go 'on' if input 'A' and input 'B' are both set to 'high' voltage, or both set to 'low' or 'ground'.
Truth table in marriage
I find it very interesting that when an integrated circuit contains an XNOR gate, it produces the same logic required for happy marriages. My wife and I follow the XNOR gate system in our marriage. In any situation, if one person says 'no' to something, then it has the power of a veto. For example, the other day I wanted to go for a jog even though the forecast called for thunder and rain. It hadn't started yet, so I thought it would be perfect timing to go for a jog. Rain wouldn't stop me before when I was single. However, my wife actually has a strong fear that I could get struck by lightning, so she told me not to go. At that moment, I was faced with a choice. I could have decided to go jogging anyway, thereby upsetting my wife, but then I remembered the truth table for XNOR gates. I decided not to go jogging, and although my inconvenience was relatively minor, it really made my wife happy that I listened to her.
I see this as an example of deferring to one's spouse for the good of the relationship. Both small and large sacrifices have to be made in a marriage to make it work. The better both spouses are at sacrificing, the happier and smoother their marriage will be. Essentially, there is no room for selfishness in a marriage. It's all about giving, and while both spouses are giving of themselves and not being selfish, both of them receive as well.
For a smooth marriage, stick to the principle of the XNOR gate!
