  1. Holy Matrimony indeed! There are 11 great cartoons here, but my first favorite is #5 down (1/21/56) “What did you say on those invitations?” Look at that pile of cash. Even if they were all $1’s, it would have been a lot then! 2nd fave from a week later (1/28), “Oh Mother!” This is at the alter, with all the guests in the pews behind them. So embarrassing. So wonderful!

    I suppose #9 (7/28/56) is the closest to a divorce cartoon in the archives. Who among us hasn’t made a mistake along the way? Speak now or forever hold your peace. Ye shalt not hold it against thy groom for that cubic (cough) zirconia ring back in the ’90s. With no kids, we pick ourselves up and go on; not making the same mistake again!
