WORLD WAR II MARRIAGE MIND SET
My mom and dad got married in 1941 just as World War II was beginning to become a real scare to the whole world. My dad was drafted into the army in 1942, but before he left he managed to leave my mother with child. The first time he saw my oldest sister she was 3 1/2 years old. While he was doing his duty in Africa and all over Europe, my mother was home in Wisconsin raising a daughter all by her self. He left in 1942 and didn't see her again until 1946, very few of the letters they wrote to each other ever got through because of security reasons. But once he got back they made up for lost time. They ended up having 9 kids and were married for 57 years. That sounds a little different than most marriages today. Now a days if one of the two is gone for a week one or both are running around with someone else. Good old time values is the best thing for a marriage. And not just for a marriage, but for all aspects of life. I know one thing for sure...Hollywood is the worst example on earth for a marriage. To them it's just a joke. My friend, please don't put any stock in that dirty bunch. Don't think for one minute they are happy. Why do you think they are all in rehab and end up committing suicide? Call me old fashioned if you want to, but I'm sticking with the World War II morales. It worked for my parents and so far it's working for my marriage of 33 years. It's a simple thing called commitment.
