What Women Really Want

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a
neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him, but was moved by Arthur's
youth and ideals. So the monarch offered him freedom, provided he could
answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out
the answer; if, after a year, he had no answer, he would be put to

The question: What do women really want?

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and, to
young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than
death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everybody: the princess,
the prostitutes, the priests, the wise men, the court jester. He spoke with
everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Many people
advised him to consult the old witch--only she would know the answer.
The price would be high; the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for
the exorbitant prices she charged. The last day of the year arrived and
Arthur had no alternative but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer
his question, but he'd have to accept her price first: The old witch
wanted to marry Gawain, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table
and Arthur's closest friend!

Young Arthur was horrified: She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only
one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises ... etc. He had never
encountered such a repugnant creature. He refused to force his friend to
marry her and have to endure such a burden.

Gawain, upon learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He told him
that nothing was too big a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the
preservation of the Round Table. Hence, their wedding was proclaimed,
and the witch answered Arthur's question thus: What a woman really wants
is to be in charge of her own life.

Everyone instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and
that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it was. The neighboring monarch
granted Arthur total freedom.

What a wedding Gawain and the witch had! Arthur was torn between relief
and anguish. Gawain was proper as always, gentle and courteous. The old
witch put her worst manners on display, and generally made everyone very

The honeymoon hour approached. Gawain, steeling himself for a horrific
experience, entered the bedroom. But what a sight awaited him! The most
beautiful woman he'd ever seen lay before him! The astounded Gawain
asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so
kind to her when she'd appeared as a witch, she would henceforth be her
horrible, deformed self half the time, and the other half, she would be
her beautiful maiden self. Which would he want her to be during the day,
and which during the night?

What a cruel question! Gawain pondered his predicament. During the day,
a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy
of his home, an old witch? Or would he prefer having by day a hideous
witch, but by night a beautiful woman with whom to enjoy many intimate

What would you do?

Noble Gawain replied that he would let her choose for herself. Upon
hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time, because he
had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

What is the moral of this story?

The moral is:

If your woman doesn't get her own way, things are going to get ugly.
