split decision

In old Russia, 2 young Jewish women were waiting for their future husbands to arrive from another shtetl in another village. They had never met their future husbands, so they were quite nervous. Unfortunately, one of the men was killed in an accident during the trip. Nobody knew which woman the surviving man was supposed to marry. The mother of each woman was called into a private meeting with the local rabbi. The rabbi said, “I have the solution: we will cut the man in half and each of your daughters will get a half.”
The first mother said, “Oh no, Rabbi! That would kill the poor man!”
The second mother said, “Your solution is acceptable.”
The rabbi looked at the second mother and announced, “We have found the mother-in-law!”
