  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Laura is told she has to wait till she is 18 before she can marry. Charles states that Laura is too young to make such an important decision. He must have more faith in Mary. She got married in "The Wedding" at age 16, and was engaged to John Jr. in "I'll Ride the Wind" at age 13 (though she had to wait two years). Reply: With many parents, they tend to cling much tighter to their younger children. I think Charles was seeing Mary as an adult much sooner because she was the oldest and very mature for her age. With Laura, he just always viewed her as his little girl, no matter how big she got. One can imagine how he would have been with Carrie and Grace if they kept the show running long enough to see them get married :)

      Reply: And, in fact, Laura's maturity does come into question several times during her and Almanzo's married life when she flies off the handle at minor things (such as Almanzo's reunion with an old flame).
