  •  A 95-year-old woman told me recently (8+ / 0-)
    I never saw my husband naked and he never saw me naked.
    I wonder how many of the nine Supreme Court justices would think that was absolutely an appropriate marital relationship?

      •  It was a different world. (0+ / 0-)

        The lady boasted about what a flirt she had been at 17, sneaking out with the boys for movies and fun, sleeping on the porch one night because she had missed her curfew and her dad had locked the house.

        She got marred by making her beau jealous to the point he yelled at her, then they went to her home to tell her mother they were going off to the next state to get married and had to leave before her father got home and stopped them.

        So this is not some weird Hindu or Muslim or fundy situation.

        It was a different world, occupied still today only by Supreme Court justices, I suspect.
