Father's Wisdom -

A young woman brings her fiance home to meet her parents. After
dinner, her mother tells her father to find out about the young man,
so the father invites the fiancee to his study for a drink.

"So what are your plans?" the father asks the young man. "I am a Torah
scholar," he replies. "A Torah scholar. Hmmm," the father says.
"Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my
daughter to live in, as she's accustomed to?"

"I will study," the young man replies, "and God will provide for us."

"And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she
deserves?" asks the father. "I will concentrate on my studies," the
young man replies, "God will provide for us."

"And children?" asks the father. "How will you support children?"

"Don't worry, sir, God will provide," replies the fiance. The
conversation proceeds like this, and each time the father questions,
the young idealist insists that God will provide. Later, the mother
asks, "How did it go, Honey?", and the father answers, "He has no job
and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I'm God."
