‘Matrimony-back’ Guarantee?

A jeweler was getting married. When it came time to slip the ring on his bride’s finger, he hesitated.

“With this ring …,” prompted the pastor, noting the jeweler appeared more than a little nervous.

“With this ring …,” the jeweler began haltingly. “With this ring …”

“Well?” said the pastor.

“With this ring … we provide a written guarantee, reminding the customer that the price will be refunded if the ring is not as represented, and the ring is returned.”
