The mayor of a Jewish village decided to create an additional room in their home.
His wife spoke to the general contractor for some time. They laughed and enjoyed what seemed like a long conversation. Her husband asked what they were talking about. The woman introduced the two men and the general contractor returned to his work.
The husband asked, "Did you know each other?"
The wife replied, "Yes, actually. We were engaged to be married when I was very young."
Her husband smiled and said. "Wow, I guess you should be happy you married me. I'm the mayor. If you had married him, you would have been married to a general contractor."
"No" she replied. "He would have been the mayor."
