Top Ten Reasons for Young Men to Become Priests Instead of Getting Married

  1. Your bride won’t have a monthly irritability cycle.
  2. Your bride will come home from BINGO with more money than when she left.
  3. As a priest, where ever there is sin, you are needed. As a husband, where ever there is sin, you are forbidden.
  4. In defense of your faith, you’ll study and learn other religions inside and out. In marriage, men are forbidden to study any other woman.
  5. Religious documentaries might be boring, but you’ll never be forced to sit through a chick-flick.

  8. Your bride won’t wake you in the middle of the night to ask you what you’re thinking, tell you she heard something, ask you if you remembered to lock the door, or hash out a week old argument.
  9. Your bride won’t mind if you have gas.
  10. Your bride will never have a headache.
