Don't Do It Again

Don and Louise have been married 50 years today. Their commitment to each other is touching.

Such a long marriage seems strangely out of date; it seems to come from a time when people married young after the end of a world war then stayed married. Or maybe they just took the best advice I received when I got married, when Victor counseled "Don't do it again."

When I called to congratulate them, Don said they'd decided not to have any more children.
