Delisacrafton says: "My grandparents were to be married October but my grandpa was in the army and couldn't come home because of the Cuban missile crisis. When he did finally come home it was December and they got married. They were married in another city than they lived which was an hour away and they forgot to tell the camera man. A week later they put back on their clothes and took this picture in a photo studio thus being their only wedding picture."

My grandfather was 17 when he joined the Navy as a nurse and was put on a ship during WWII. I was always told that my grandmother waited for him while he was overseas. They were together until he died in '98, and she followed just a few years later. This is my favorite wedding photo of them. I think my grandmother is just gorgeous.

Good idea on getting married before he sailed off. Walking down the aisle when you haven't got your land legs back would be no fun, after all. Thanks for sharing your grandparent's story!

DrpepperPhD says: "My grandparents got married in the '40s. My grandfather was an engineer and worked for NASA, and he was a real do-it-yourselfer. He built a house for his wife and children from the ground up. My grandmother passed away from cancer about 8 years ago, and my grandfather passed on this year. To me, they've been the perfect example of a beautiful, happy marriage."
