Thomas was a single guy, who was still living at home with his widowed father and working in the family business.
When he found out that he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided that it was time to be a single guy no longer and that he needed a wife to share his fortune.
One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman that he had ever seen.
Her natural beauty took his breath away. She had the most amazing curly red hair, beautiful blue eyes and a figure to die for.
Thomas plucked up his courage and went over to her and to his delight she engaged in conversation with him.
“I may look like just an ordinary man”, he said to her, “but in just a few years, my father will die and I will inherit $60 million”.
The woman seemed really impressed and asked Thomas if she could have his business card.
Just three days later, she became his stepmother.
Women are so much better at financial planning than men, don’t you think?
