What Does Love Got to Do With It?
While doing a little station surfing on my radio I paused to listen to a man talking to Dr. Laura.
From what I caught of the conversation, the man's daughter was in the process of getting married. The daughter apparently already had a child, and this was her first wedding. The father was looking for support of his position that since the daughter had the baby before getting married he was not going to pay for or participate in the wedding other than showing up and sitting in the pews.
Dr. Laura applauded his position and said that this was a good way to teach his daughter that there were always consequences for her actions.
While reading "The Lonely Lady" by Harold Robbins, a husband and wife are talking about their eighteen year old daughter marrying a fifty year old man. The wife says the daughter is making a big mistake. The husband responds, "I do not know that, and neither do you. But if she has made a mistake, I will still love her and try to help her."
That is one way that LOVE is the thing that makes a real difference in a relationship.
