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 his freedom, as long  as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a  year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no  answer, he would be put to death.

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 end.

He returned to  his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests,  the wise men and even 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, for only she would have the  answer.

But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the  kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch.  She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her  price first.

The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, 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 in all his life.

He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but  Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur

He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the  preservation of the Round Table.

Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's question thus:

What a woman really wants, she answered....is to be in charge of her own  life.

Everyone in the  kingdom 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 his freedom and Lancelot and  The honeymoon  hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific  experience, entered the bedroom.

But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened ?

The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a  witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.

Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or night?

Lancelot  pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous  intimate moments?
What  would YOU do?
What  Lancelot chose is below. 
BUT....make  YOUR choice before you scroll down below.

Noble  Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice 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.

Now....what is  the moral to this story?

The moral  is.....
If you  don't let a woman have her own way.... Things are going to get ugly
