Defying their parents’ bold conspiracy to sabotage their young love, Donna & Ed announce they will marry, elope if necessary. Donna’s dowry is zero. Ed’s prospects unknown. They have no mentors, no friends in high places. Their hopes are daydreams. She borrows a friend’s wedding gown. Ed, standing behind her, equally penniless as a private on active duty in the US Army, wears his uniform.
They have just vowed to remain together—
“Until death do us part.”
