During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the minister
with an unusual offer. "Look, I'll give you $100 if you'll
change the wedding vows. When you get to me and the part where
I'm to promise to 'love, honor and obey' and 'forsaking all
others,' I'd appreciate it if you'd just leave that part out."
He passed the minister the cash and walked away satisfied.
The wedding day arrives, and the bride and groom have moved to
that part of the ceremony where the vows are exchanged. When it
comes time for the groom's vows, the minister looks the young
man in the eye and says,
"Will you promise to bow yourself before her, obey her
every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning
of your life and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife
that you will not ever even look at another woman, as long as
you both shall live?"
The groom gulped and looked around, and said in a tiny voice,
The groom leaned toward the minister and hissed,
"I thought we had a deal."
The minister put the $100 into his hand and whispered back,
"She made me a much better offer."
