When my grandparents were 16 and 18-years-old, they eloped to Las Vegas, Nevada. Because they were born in the early 1900’s, such was considered “inappropriate” by their families.
But they didn’t care. They had each other — and the “risk” of pursuing love was worth it. 71 years later, Robert and Genevieve Brechtel remain happily married. And to this day, they take risks together — sometimes big, sometimes small.
