Ladies, what are you worth?

    If we still lived in the time when men offered your father animals in exchange for your hand in marriage ... what would you say is a fair trade for you?

    Would you be flattered if a man offered your father 500 cattle for you?

    Funny you should start this topic, as I was just talking with an officer who married a Filipino lady.

    Today is her 27th birthday; he confided that he bought her an i-Phone and just knows that she's going to scold him for being too extravagant!

    He said - tongue-in-cheek - that he's going to have to keep her away from American women!


    So, in answer to your question, we are worth whatever our cultural heritage has conditioned us to believe we're worth.

    After the wedding ceremony, the groom took the preacher aside and said "what do I owe you for the services?"

    The preacher replied, "Well, whatever you think she's worth."

    The young man gave the preacher $100.

    A few minutes later when the preacher saw the bridegroom lift the brides veil, he turned around and gave the man $75 change back.

    Darren Flutie (football player) asked me out one time after the Player Awards and I told him, "You can't afford me."

    He said "Don't you know who I am? I'm Darren Flutie." And I said, "I know who you are and you still can't afford me!"

    He just laughed.
