IT BEGAN IN 1971
(IN 71 WORDS)
“You’re not in love.” My mother fumed. “You’re in lust. Only eighteen. Too young to know your own mind.”
Nonetheless, I dug in my heels. My dad walked me down the aisle, a sorrowful expression on his face and tears in his eyes. “You can always come home if it doesn’t work out.”
“I give them six months,” said my aunt.
A paradox in progress.
Forty-nine years later, we’re still married.
