Like Your Mother?

Matty is almost 29 years old. His friends have already gotten married, but Matty still just dates and dates.

Finally, a friend asks him, “What’s the matter, are you looking for the perfect woman? Are you that particular? Can’t you find anyone who suits you?”

“No,” Matty replies. “I meet many nice girls, but as soon as I bring them home to meet my parents, my Mother doesn’t like them. So I keep on looking!”

“Listen,” his friend suggests, “Why don’t you find a girl who’s just like your dear old Mother?”

Many weeks go by and again Matty and his friend get together. “So, Matty, did you find that perfect girl yet–one that’s just like your Mother?”

Matty shrugs his shoulders, “Yes, I found one just like Mum. And my mother loved her, and they became best friends.”

So should I congratulate you? “Are you and this girl engaged, yet?”

“I’m afraid not. My Father can’t stand her!
