"So that's what I did," said Senator Reid.

 LDS Couple Still Sweethearts After 72 Years
An LDS bishop asked a couple to wait to be married! In 1928, a bishop in the LDS church asked a couple to wait for two days while traveling 177 miles to Salt Lake Temple to be married. He did not want the couple, Cleao, (age 26) and Fern (age 16) McBride to travel together as an engaged couple, so they moved the date. They had planned on June 7, 1928. The result was two to be married so they could travel together as husband and wife....and the other to be married in the Salt Lake Temple for all time and eternity.
