In a small town in the Old Country, the Rabbi died. His widow, theRebbetzin, was so disconsolate that the people of the town decidedthat she ought to get married again.The town was so small that the only eligible bachelor was the town butcher. The poor Rebbetzin was somewhat dismayed because she had been wed toa scholar, and the butcher had no great formal education however, shewas lonely so she agreed and they were married. After the marriage,Friday came. She went to the mikvah (a Jewish ritual bath to get ridof impurities). Then, she went home to prepare to light the candles.The butcher leaned over to her and said, "My mother told me that afterthe mikvah and before lighting the candles, it's a mitzvah to havesex." So they did. She lit the candles.He leaned over again and said, "My father told me that after lightingthe candles it's good to have sex." So they did. They went to bedafter prayers to get ready for Shabbos.When they awoke he said to her, "My grandmother said that before yougo to the synagogue it's a mitzvah to have sex." So they did. Afterpraying all morning, they came home to rest and again he whispers inher ear, "My grandfather says after praying it's a mitzvah to havesex." So they did. On Sunday she went out to shop for food and met afriend who asked, "Nu, Nu,! So how is the new husband?" She replied,"Well, he is no scholar; but he comes from a wonderful family "
