    An Unusual Offer

    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."

    The groom 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."

    If you have true friends the church should look like a stadium doing the 'wave' when the preacher asks if there is any reason these two should not wed....
  6. Those were the vows I had to take AFTER the ceremony!
