Date Used ___/___/___ AM PM

Things can get kind of interesting at home, can’t they?

The story is told of Paul and Kathy who approached a preacher about getting married. They attended the required sessions and the date was set.

While alone with the preacher, Paul pulled out a nice, crisp hundred dollar bill and pressed it into the preacher’s hand.

Paul said quietly, “Look, I’ll give you this hundred if you’ll change the wedding vows. When you get to the part where I promise to ‘love and honor’ and ‘forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,’ I would appreciate it if you would just leave that part out of it.”

On the wedding day, Paul and Kathy were about to exchange vows. The preacher surprised Paul when he looked him square in the eyes and said, “Will you promise to lay your life down before her every day, obey her every command, serve her breakfast in bed every morning and promise eternally before God and before your lovely wife that you will not ever even look at another woman so long as you both shall live?”

Paul sighed and coughed nervously, and realizing he had no choice finally said, “Yes.”

Paul then leaned over and whispered in the pastor’s ear, “Look, I thought we had a deal.”

The preacher whispered, “Yes, we did, but she made me a better offer.”

Then he handed the $100 back to Paul.
