Marrying For Love


The above image, Heart Lights is also available as a Desktop Background

Today's song is House That Has Everything, by Elvis Presley, released in 1967.

I recently watched the 1967 movie, Clambake. It deals with the issue of someone looking to marry into wealth without regard to also being in love. The song I listed above from that movie, tells it like it is.

Sherry married me when I was poor; poor in wealth, poor in spirit. She agreed to marry me and live in a small wooden cabin in the woods. I doubt other women from Chicago would opt for that arrangement. The other women I knew wanted more of a start. Some of them that did marry started out with more, but their marriages didn't last. True love and devotion does not depend on wealth.

Sherry and I went through rough times in the early years of our marriage due to recession. At no time did our economic condition cause us to drift apart. Our amount of wealth at whatever level, never was the basis for our marriage.

We married for love. Nowadays this recession brings more economic challenges. We remain close through it all. I only advise people to marry for love because in hard times, that's what will carry you both through. I write from 36 years of marriage to a woman who loves me (in her own words) the same as when she was 18 years old. That's worth more to me than all the wealth in the world.

Two new short stories:

---

Time Magazine has an article about how the recession impacts the young. Hopefully they learn the right entrepreneurial lessons from each recession they encounter in life.

America's past is not its future. Change is the order of the day due to the global economy. Adapt and succeed. Counting on luck or looking for guarantees through tax policies is not the answer.
