From SAHP:

30 years ago today.......
2 kids, fresh out of high school, drove their rented Ford Pinto (his uncle had to rent the car, since neither kid was old enough) to Reno. In the car were her best friend and his cousin.

They pulled into Reno, and had a flat tire, right in front of the marriage license office. While cousin Al fixed the tire, the two wet behind the ears kids got the marriage license....

The wedding was at 3:00, and the bride had to change into her wedding dress (a long baby blue granny gown) at the gas station, as the hotel room wasn't ready yet.

At 3:00, in spite of all the obstacles, the young couple and their two attendants stood in front of Father Bishop at St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral in Reno.

30 years later, in spite of all the obstacles, we're still here:)

And they said we wouldn't last a year;-P

I can't believe I am old enough to have been married for 30 years! It has been an adventure.
