Having a stingy partner can be rather unpleasant. People are naturally free to spend their money any way they choose, but things are a little different when you’re in a relationship.

You must make concessions and adjust to one another in that circumstance. One such story is this one.

I’m not sure if this tale is accurate. Even though it’s entirely made up, I found it humorous and had to respect the widow’s intelligence.

The story caught my attention earlier today, and I knew I had to share it with you because of the hilarious punchline. Shared delight is twofold joy, as the proverb goes!

There once was a man who had spent his entire life working and saving money.

He was an absolute miser when it came to spending money. He cherished money more than almost anything else.

The man got sick one day. The physicians informed him that his time was running out.

As soon as he learned, he told his wife, “Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take all of my money with me to the hereafter.
His wife, now facing a very difficult life as a widow, answered, “I promise.”

The husband died soon after a short while had gone. Their neighborhood church hosted the funeral.

The lady was seated next to their best buddy in black next to the stretched-out body of their deceased loved one. The wife interrupted the undertakers as they were about to close the casket after the ceremony, saying, “Wait a minute!”

She came over with a shoe box that she had with her and put it into the coffin. The casket was then locked and rolled away by the funeral directors.

“What was that shoe box?” asked her buddy.

The widow responded, “He wanted to be buried with all of his money, so I put it in there.”

“Are you insane? You buried that greedy man with all of his money, right?

“Yes, I promised,” she replied. I can’t lie; as a decent Christian, I can’t. I pledged to him that I would place that sum of money in the coffin with him.

But he was wealthy; how did everything fit in that shoe box?

“Well, that was a problem,” the wife responded. “So I collected everything, deposited it in my account, and wrote him a check.”
