During a wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the preacher 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 promise to ’love and honor and forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,’ I’d appreciate it if you’d just leave that part out.” He passed the minister a $100 bill and walked away satisfied.
On the wedding day, the bride and groom got to the part of the ceremony where vows are exchanged. When it came time for the groom’s vows, the preacher looked the young man in the eye and said: “Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life and promise 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, looked around, and said in a tiny voice, “Yes.” He then leaned forward and hissed, “I thought we had a deal.”
The preacher put the $100 bill into his hand and whispered back, “She made me a much better offer.”
