Financial Planning

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.
When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died,
he decided he needed a wife with which to share his fortune. One evening at an
investment meeting he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man,"
he said to her, but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit $200 million."

Impressed, the woman obtained his business card and three days later,
she became his stepmother.

Women are so much better at financial planning than men.

I'd say this shows money is the root of all evil...
Much better to be a pauper with a clear conscience.

Better still to have a mother-in-law you fancy who will be available and fully furnished with all that inheritance!

Duffy - You are clearly a DOM with an ovriding lust for money...or something...

No J! CJ is just as good a financial planner as his step-ma.

Some women are so clever.I would have waited for the father to die and meantime he would have run off with someone else,probably my best friend.I am from the reed warbler species.
