A Forty-Year Engagement

And they have to leave their own country to get married:

Dr. Spyer, who has become a quadriplegic as a result of advanced multiple sclerosis, said of the weekend, and her time spent with Ms. Windsor: "It was a feeling of complete delight in being with her. I had a real sense of 'I've landed in my life.'"

That was 40 years ago.

Dr. Spyer had the help of three aides who traveled with her to Canada to officially marry Ms. Windsor, ending an engagement that began in 1967.

This is a threat to the family?
