One Sunday morning George burst into the living room and said, "Dad! Mom!
I have great news! I'm getting married to Mary Collins, the most beautiful
girl in town." After dinner, George's dad took him aside,  "Son, I have to
talk with you. Look at your mother, George.  She and I have been married 30
years, she's a wonderful wife and mother, but, she has never offered much
excitement in the bedroom, so I used to fool around with women a lot. I'm
afraid Mary is actually your half sister so you can't marry her."

George was broken-hearted. After eight months he eventually started dating
girls again. A year later he came home and very proudly announced, "Dianne
said yes! We're getting married in June."  Again his father insisted on
another private conversation and broke the sad news. "Dianne is your half
sister too, George. I'm awfully sorry about this."

George was livid!  He finally decided to go to his mother with the news his
father had shared. "Dad has done so much harm. I guess I'm never going to
get married," he complained. "Every time I fall in love, Dad tells me the
girl is his daughter." "I wish you'd told me this before." his mother said,
shaking her head "But don't be worried by anything he says.  He's not really
your father."
