They couldn’t afford a honeymoon, so they spent their wedding night at a grand hotel instead, in a lovely suite. After the ceremony, they and their friends repaired to the suite, drank champagne, laughed and reminisced until the early hours of the next day. When they finally went to bed, she realized that she was getting a cold. Her throat was so sore she couldn’t sleep, despite all that champagne. He went out to find a drugstore that was still open, and when he returned, unable to find one, she was asleep. It was an inauspicious beginning to their marriage.
