A young woman visits her parents and brings her new partner to meet them. After an elaborate dinner, the mother tells her husband to find out about the young man.

The father invites the man to his library for a drink and asks him: “So what are your plans?”

“I am a Torah scholar,” he says.

The father answers: “A Torah scholar? Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, as she is accustomed to?”

“I will study,” the young man says. “And God will provide for us.”

“And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asks the father.

“I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replies. “God will provide for us.”

“And children?” asks the father. “How will you support children?”

“Don’t worry, sir, God will provide,” replies the man.

The conversation continues like this, and each time the father questions, the young idealist insist that God will provide. Later, the mother asks: “How did it go, honey?”

The father answers: “He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I’m God”.
