    • Charles: (to Almanzo, who wants to marry Laura right away) Almanzo, now I want you to listen to me. You're a great deal older--
      Almanzo: Mr. Ingalls, I don't think my age should have anything to do with it!
      Charles: Well, neither do I. Just hear me out. All right, the difference in your ages stopped bothering me a long time ago. It's Laura's age that bothers me, not yours. A man in your position, you know what you want. Laura's young. She's still growing, she's still changing. You know she loves you, but you want to be sure--sure that she really wants to spend the rest of her life with you, through the good times and the bad. And believe me, son, there's gonna be plenty of bad. When you're as young as Laura, and you're being courted, everything's just sweet music and starry skies--and life just isn't like that. If you love each other now, you should love each other just as much two years from now. Do you understand?
      Almanzo: Yeah, I understand. I just can't say I agree with you.
      Charles: Well, I don't think it's important that you agree with me. What is important is that you understand why I'm telling you no.
      Almanzo: And that's your final answer?
      Charles: Yeah.
