Once upon a time there was a cow, a pig and a hen living on a farm by a busy highway.
The cow said, “Let’s start a drive-thru restaurant called “Coffee and Free Cream to Go.”
“That’s a great idea,” said the hen. “ We’ll only work mornings. Let’s offer a cheap “Ham ‘n Eggs’ breakfast special, too.”
“Sounds interesting," the pig said. "Let me think about it.”
The cow and the hen tried to persuade the pig to chip in, “It’ll be fun. We’ll be equal partners and share the profits. It’s win-win for everybody.”
The pig said,“That’s not the way I see it. Your contributions—the milk and the eggs—are free. They don’t cost you anything. I’m the only one that has to make a commitment.”

A 2001 survey of 200 daters, conducted by psychologist Martie Haselton and Dr. David Buss, revealed conclusively that men found their partners less attractive and sexy after first-time sex than they did before. And the more partners a man had had, the more likely he was to think his lover was unattractive in the morning. In contrast, women always found their partners more sexy, regardless of their number of previous partners.
Based upon these statistics, why would women seeking love, commitment and marriage ignore Granny's advice, "Why buy the cow (pig) when you can get the milk (ham) for free?"
