College Buddy of Mine Gets Married–at 42
Edmund, a homework partner in many of my engineering classes at Embry-Riddle, got married today. I had the privilege of being there.
He graduated a year ahead of me, and–providentially–landed a nice job at an Air Force base in Georgia. Right before the hiring freeze kicked in. Like me, he’s also a Christian.
For his post-collegiate years, his experiences with the opposite sex had been like mine: (a) the pool of available women was very shallow, and (b) those whom he chased did not want him.
A year or so ago, he met a gal who worked on base: Allison. She’s a very bright person, very traditional-values oriented. Very good-looking. They fell for each other.
I don’t know Allison personally, but–from my conversations with her family, and the people from the church who knew both of them–I’d say Edmund landed an oustanding catch.
Allison also landed a great catch.
She needs to thank all those gals who turned him down before her.
