Married for the Forth Time

The local news station was interviewing an 84 -year-old lady because she had just married for the fourth time. The Interviewer asked her about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 84, and then he asked about her new husband's occupation. "he's a funeral director" she answered.

 "Interesting" replied the newsman. He than asked if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments… needing time to reflect on all those years.

After a short time, a smile came across her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she first married a banker when she was in her early twenties, then a circus master when she was in her forties, later on a preacher when in her sixties and now in her eighties, a funeral director.

 The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

“Easy son", she smiled. "I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready and four to go!"
