The Widow

The minister dies and the congregation decides, after some time, that his widow, should marry again. Since it is a small village the only available candidate is the local butcher. Although very reluctantly, since she was used to living with a bible scholar, she accepts.

After the marriage, on Friday night just after taking a bath the new husband tells his wife, “Look, my mother always said that before the beginning of the weekend it was a blessing to make love.”

They do it and then on Saturday he tells her, “According to my father it is a blessing to make love during the day before the Sabbath.

There they go again and when it is time to go to sleep he tells her, “My grandfather told me that one should always make love on Sabbath night.”

Finally they go to sleep and when they wake up the next morning he tells her, “My aunt says that a Christian man always starts the Sabbath by making love. So lets do it.”

Finally on Monday she goes out to the market and meets a friend that asks her, “So how is the new husband?”

“Well, an intellectual he isn’t, but he comes from a wonderful family.”
