how would you interprete the meaning of this parable from the Talmud?

There once lived and man with two wives, one younger the other older. The younger wife not wishing for her husband to appear old, would pluck out his grey hairs every night. The older wife not wishing to appear older than her husband would pluck his black hairs. The result of course is that the man was left bald.

Don't have two wives, for trying to please too many will wear you out?

WOMEN ARE EVIL BLOODSUCKERS WHO WILL PICK A MAN APART ONE HAIR AT A TIME.

Course, I could be wrong

The women cared not for their husband, but only for themselves and their own vanity.

Choose wisely when taking a wife...

I love parables.
There could be, of course, more than one possible interpretation.

1) Don't try to turn something into something it is not.
2) Don't concentrate on the flaws of others, but on their strengths.
3) Be greatful for what you have.
4) You can't please all the people all the time.

Morale of the story: if you think you can not only handle one but /two/ JAPs, they'll pick ya clean.

My cousin married one of those. She only gets 10k/month in child support now.

I can't understand why any man would want two wives...one is more than enough for any sane man. If this jackass had two he deserved to be bald...crazy bastard!

The moral of the story is this: You can't please everyone.

Two plucking women will cause your hair to fall out.

Just what I was going to say. Although some of the other posts are pretty funny.

Each wife, took it upon themselves to do what THEY thought was best for their husband. In the end, their meddling caused him to loose all of the hair he had.

Very similar to the way politics in this country is shaking out right now. Two sides are doing what THEY think is best for the people. In the end, we'll be left with nothing!

Simple, try pleasing everyone you end up pleasing no one and ultimately you pay the price.

Keep a Jewish woman under your thumb? Are you freaking nuts??????

The Neutral Observer first knew that his wife loved him when she started bossing him around. That woman rules this household like a tyrant.

This guy sleeps like a rock. Two women staying up nights plucking hairs out of his skull and he doesn't even wake up? Geeez.

Man with two wives, twice as likely to get balled?
