Back in the day when saying 'I Do' really meant 'I Do Forever and Through Whatever', would make any Bride and Groom look 'Scared Straight'.
I wonder how the newspaper worked in that part about 'The Happy Couple' when both of them look like the camera was a Gaitlin Gun.
Who knows...maybe her Daddy was standing behind the curtain with a Shot Gun.
After studying this photo I've decided that they were a willing and loving couple. Notice his left arm and hand touching her just above the waist under her left arm. Back in the day that might have been considered a bit improper. Maybe that's why she looks so 'Wide Eyed'.
Here they are a few years later with my Great Great Aunt and her husband.
Everyone looks pretty settled into married life.
It appears that even though the guys are wearin' the pants, that the gals have everything under control.
Afterall, look whose sittin' and whose standin'!
Yep, the Women in my Family Tree stand strong and determined.
