one for the women

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 dies, he figured he needed a wife with whom to share his fortune.

One evening at an investment seminar, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.  Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her,"but in just a few years, my father will die and I'll inherit US$200 million." 

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

Morale of the story: Women are so much better at financial planning than men.

Goes to show women ( especially matured women?)are more far-sighted than men( especially immature men ?)

Just me,

matured women & immatured men are unequal comparisons.

in any case, the story is not conclusive - the old man could still have his fun & still maintain his will that bequeaths the estate to his son.

only the son loses out, but with time, he'll find another "most beautiful" woman.

doc, there are quite a few cases

of "younger" men marrying very

rich "matured" women .

Just me,

there are just as many cases of women marrying men old enough to be their fathers, but unfortunately, i don't see your point here.

somewhere in the story is a lesson Confucius or Sun Tzu would have been proud to impart.
