  1. Happy 40th birthday to my sexy sweet Wife who I am forever grateful to have married. It’s about time somebody calls the fire department before the house burns down because she is looking smoking hot today! 
  2. Wishing my dear Wife a fantastic birthday! To ensure I wouldn’t forget your birthday card this year, I decided to schedule an e-card to auto-send at midnight. Thank the stars for modern technology, otherwise, you would have seen a frantic husband leaping out of bed to run to the shops this morning!
  3. Happy 40th birthday to my wonderful Wife. You’ve reached that age where you start to run out of space for birthday cake candles. Good thing they make those two-digit ones, I can’t imagine anyone would enjoy individually placing forty candles on a cake. 
  4. Dear Wife, life begins at 40 as they say, and I have a long list of mischievous adventures for us to take part in. Let’s dedicate the next decade to staying young and pushing our limits…obviously on weekends only between the socially acceptable hours of 9am and 6pm, within 5 miles of home, and with a 30-minute nap every 2 hours.
  5. Best wishes to the birthday girl on this special day! You might be celebrating your 40th birthday, but you don’t look a day over 30. If only that was the case for me, then maybe people wouldn’t mistake me for your sugar daddy.
  6. In the pursuit of staying young, I decided to make a list of activities to help us hold onto whatever bit of youth we have left. 1) Skateboarding – with helmets, knee and elbow pads of course. 2) Parkour – followed by painkillers and physiotherapy. 3) Boxing – using VR headsets while stationary in the comfort of our own home.
  7. Sending sweet birthday wishes to my dear Wife on her 40th birthday today. In the interest of keeping the focus away from age, I promise to leave the birthday cake candleless and the wine flowing like a river.

  1. Happy 40th birthday to my darling Wife. I’m such a lucky man to have such a great companion and a best friend who provides me with unconditional love.

  4. Wishing my Wife a beautiful birthday as she celebrates turning 40 today. While some may call you old, I prefer to use the term “vintage” or “classic”.

  5. Now that my precious Wife is turning 40, let’s review a few pros and cons of growing old: 3 upsides – Retirement; unlimited naps; and OAP discounts. 3 – downsides – Increased sensitivity to visual and auditory stimuli, rising cost of insurance medical bills; incontinence.
