One day his father turned gravely ill and John was informed by the family lawyer that John would inherit the family fortune should his father pass. Realizing he wasn't getting any younger and that he was not prepared to manage the family business as well as serve on the township board, John decided it was time for him to find a wife with whom he could share his life and start a family.
Not knowing how to get started with finding a wife, John joined a local singles dating club. While at his first meeting, he met a stunning woman who took his breath away. From the conversation they had, it seemed she had all the attributes John wanted in a wife.
Three days later, she stopped by the township hall. John spotted her and asked the Township Chair if they could take a quick recess. John ran over to her and asked what she was doing at the meeting. She said, "I just stopped in to inform you that as of this morning, I am your new stepmother."
