King Arthur and the old Very UGLY Woman

Young King Arthur was ambushed  and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The  monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and  ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a  very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure outthe  answer and, if, after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.
The question?…What do women  really want? Such a question would perplex even the most  knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since  it was better than death, he accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.
He returned to his kingdom and  began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and  even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could  give him a satisfactory answer.
Many people advised him to  consult the old ugly woman, for only she would have the  answer.
But the price would be high;  as the woman was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant  prices she charged.
The last day of the year  arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the old woman. She agreed  to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price  first.
The old ugly woman wanted to  marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and  Arthur’s closest friend!
Young Arthur was horrified.  She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like  sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant  creature in all his life.
He refused to force his friend  to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning  of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.
He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life and the preservation of the Round  Table.
Hence, a wedding was  proclaimed and the woman answered Arthur’s question thus: What a woman really wants,  she answered….is to be in charge  of her own life.
Everyone in the kingdom  instantly knew that the woman had uttered a great truth and that Arthur’s  life would be spared.
And so it was, the neighboring  monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the ugly woman  had a  wonderful  wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached  and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered  the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman  he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot  asked what had happened.
The young beauty replied that  since he had been so kind to her when she appeared ugly, she would  henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the  beautiful maiden the other half.
Which would he prefer?  Beautiful during the day….or night?
Lancelot pondered the  predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends,  but at night, in the privacy of hiscastle, an old ugly woman? Or,  would he  prefer having a  hideous woman  during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?
What would YOU do?
What Lancelot chose is  below.
BUT….make YOUR choice before  you scroll down below.
OKAY?

Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

Upon hearing this, she  announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected  her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

Now….what is the moral to  this story?

The moral is…..

If you don’t let a woman have  her own way….

Things are going to get  ugly…
