How did your mother and father meet? How long did they know each other before getting married? What do you know about their courtship and wedding?

I find it interesting that I have no idea how my parents met. I don’t know how long they knew each other before they got married; the subject of their courtship and wedding remains a mystery as well.

I do remember my great grandmother telling me that they got married because my mother was pregnant with my older sister (My sister is 5 years older than I am; the rest of us are much closer in age).

  1. Dad was in the air force and had met a girl while stationed in Japan. He then got stationed in Mississippi for a short while and met my mom. Never made it back to Japan but I know he wanted to. You could see the yearn every time it would come up. My mom was a difficult person til her late years she ironed out a little but dad left true love behind for convenience and regretted that.

    1. Wow! I wonder if your mom knew she wasn’t “the one” and that’s why she was so difficult. That’s really interesting that he yearned for someone else so openly.

  2. It wasn’t openly talked but he told me about it once when I was hunting with him. I had been asking about his youth and when he told me that story you could see it in his eyes and hear his sincerity. Mom actually turned out really cool later in life. She went farther than anyone I know. Imagine a Faulkner novel with naked kids in the muddy front yard with the ol lady smokin a pipe in the front porch. Sexual abuse from 2 different step fathers and grandma tolerating it. Mom was a wreck but she grew as a person in her 40’s and up. She got some good help and really turned out to be delightful and a Boeing professional. Cool story actually.
