AL Roker has revealed his wife Deborah Roberts’ strict rules on their marriage.
The Today Show weatherman, 68, admitted Deborah, 62, makes him “save” his stories for dinner so they don’t eat in silence.
Al brought up the subject while discussing dinner etiquette with his co-hosts Sheneille Jones, Craig Melvin and Dylan Dreyer on Monday.
He said, “It’s funny because I’m going to start telling Deborah a story, she’s going to say, ‘Save it for dinner.'”
When his colleagues burst out laughing, he added, “Like ‘We’re out of stuff?’ I have to save things?”
Craig said through his laughter, “Don’t use your best material, honey!”
Al then joked that he thinks about dinner themes before meals.
“Sorry sweetie, I was workshopping with some friends over lunch to see if it worked,” he said.
“I’ve really refined this act, so I’m saving it for dinner!”
Al has been married to Deborah for 28 years and they have two children together – Leila, 24, and Nick, 20.

Deborah added: “So that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to take a little breather, take a few days and try to refresh and recharge.
