2. Unfortunately, it was advice that I didn't listen to. In 1986, as he was walking me down the aisle to marry my first husband, he whispered that we could keep on walking...straight out the side door of the church, and he and my mom would never question it. I should have listened; that marriage lasted only two and a half years. Father knows best!
