Investing in a Good Marriage

A Hassidic family is most concerned that their 30-year-old son is unmarried. So they call a marriage broker and ask him to find their son a good wife.

The broker comes over to their house and spends a long time asking many questions of the son and his parents as to what they want in a wife/daughter-in-law. They give him a long shopping list of requirements.

The marriage broker takes a long time looking, and finally asks to visit the family again. He tells them of a wonderful woman he has found. He says she’s just the right age for the son. She keeps a Glatt Kosher home. She regularly attends Schul and davens by heart. She is a wonderful cook. She loves children and wants a large family and, to crown it all off, she’s gorgeous.

After hearing all this, the family is very impressed and begins to get excited about the prospects of a wedding in the near future. But the son pauses and asks, “Is she also good in bed?”

The marriage broker answers, “Some say yes…some say no.”
