In last season's finale episode, Charles made the final decision to make Laura wait one year before marrying Almanzo. However, in this Season 7 opening episode--which is only a few months later--they get married, and there is absolutely no evidence that Charles has permitted them to speed up the wedding plans. We are supposed to believe that a more significant amount of time has passed for the characters since Season 6's finale, but are we supposed to believe that a full YEAR has passed? That's not very likely.
Reply: Actually, we are supposed to believe that six months have passed. If you recall, when she is talking with Caroline early in the episode she says that she can't believe that in 6 months, she is going to be Laura Ingalls Wilder. Laura and Almanzo just make it sound like it's sooner.
