Two ladies ran into the court of King Solomon.
“My daughter is to marry this man, but this lady claims that her daughter is already engaged to get married to him!” one of them yelled.
The king stroked his beard and sat in deep thought. Finally the King spoke. “The man shall be cut in two and each of your daughters shall have him.”
“Very well!” said the first lady.
“No, don’t, I would rather let the other girl marry him than have him cut in two!” exclaimed the second lady.
The King pronounced. “The first lady is the true mother-in-law.”
“What?” objected the other. “She wanted him cut in two!”
“Indeed.” said the king. “She is a mother-in-law!”
