A young man who works in a bank advised his 80-year-old friend about a mail-order bride he is yet to marry after confronting him with the rumors in town.
After a long day at work, a banker drove his automobile slowly on his way home. When he reached one side of town, the man decided to get a few snacks to help with his mood.
In town, he ran into his 80-year-old friend named Tom who was a rancher. Word on the street was the older adult planned on marrying a mail-order bride.

The banker greeted Tom warmly, and knowing that the older man lost his wife a year ago, he politely asked about his well-being before confronting him with the rumors.
Tom had no problem confiding in his young friend, so he explained that the gossip was indeed true and he was indeed getting himself another wife.
The bank worker paused for a moment and asked for the bride's age. Upon hearing that she was a 20-year-old, the banker thought of a way to advise his old friend.
The banker thought to himself that naturally, it would be quite impossible for a husband his friend's age to satisfy his younger bride sexually.
Since he wanted his friend to continue living a happy life, he suggested he hire a young assistant for his ranch, knowing things would just take their course naturally from there.
Tom thanked him, and as soon as he got home, he heeded the banker's advice. In no time, a helping hand resumed duties on the ranch.
After a few weeks, the banker ran into the ranch owner, convinced that his advice worked. The young man asked about the bride and the 80-year-old proudly said:
"Good! She is pregnant."
The banker sheepishly smiled to himself and added: "How's the hired hand?" Tom's face lit in an infectious smile before he answered: "She's pregnant too!"
