    During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the pastor 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'm to promise to 'love, honor and obey'
    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.

    It is now the day of the wedding, and the bride and groom have moved to
    that part of the ceremony where the vows are exchanged. When it comes
    time for the groom's vows, the pastor looks the young man in the eye
    and says, "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, and said in a tiny voice, "I do."
    Then, he leaned toward the pastor and hissed, "I thought we had a deal."

    The pastor put the $100 bill into his hand and whispered back, "She made
    me a much better offer."
