(Ed. Note: so, given that I just got engaged this past February, should I be worried? )
MY HUSBAND AND I, both active-duty Navy officers, were married by a notary public in Jacksonville, Fla., where I was stationed. Our wedding took place the day the Operation Desert Storm cease-fire was announced. We had gone to the courthouse on my lunch hour, so I was still in uniform. After the notary pronounced us husband and wife, he smiled and shook his head. "One war ends," he said, "and another begins."
