After a wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the priest with his offering for the wedding.
“Look, Father, I will give you $100 if you change the wedding vows for me. When you get to the part where I’m suppose to promise to ‘love, honor and obey and forsake all others and be faithful to her forever’, I would really appreciate it if you would just skip that part.
He gave the priest his $100 offering and left.
When the wedding day arrived, it came time for the groom to say his vows. The priest looked the young man in the eyes and said, “Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every command, serve her breakfast in bed every morning for the rest of your life, and swear before God and your lovely wife that you will never, ever, even look at another woman so long as you both shall live?
The groom froze for a moment, looked around and then said in a tiny whisper, “I do.”
After the Mass, the groom pulled the priest aside and hissed at him, “I thought we had a deal.”
The priest slipped the $100 bill back into the groom’s hand and whispered, “The bride’s father made me a much better offer.”
