During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the vicar with a very unusual offer.
“Look”, the groom said, “I will give you $250 if you will change the wedding vows. When you get to me and the part where I have to promise to love, honor and obey and forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever, I would appreciate it if you could just leave that part out”.
The groom passed the vicar the cash and walked away satisfied.
Moving forward to the day of the wedding, the wedding was well under way and it came to that part of the ceremony where the bride and groom exchange vows.
When it came time for the groom’s vows, the vicar 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 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, then said in a tiny voice, “Yes”.
When the ceremony was over, the groom leaned toward the vicar and hissed, “I thought we had a deal”.
The vicar put the $250 into his hand and whispered back, “Yes we did, but your wife made me a much better offer”.
