Connie: I told them that I had eloped, and that I quickly realized it was a mistake and that I was going to file for a divorce, but that he hadn’t signed the first divorce papers so I didn’t know what to do.
My Dad suggested an annulment, since the marriage wasn’t technically legal, and my Christmas present that year was money to pay for it.
Ruth: You didn’t tell them about the miscarriage?
Ruth: What if they find out accidentally from listening to this interview?
Connie: If they listen to it, so be it.
Ruth: Does Dad know about the miscarriage?
Connie: Yes, I’ve told him everything when we first talked about marriage.
Ruth: Just for the record, I’m in shock and I no longer know how I want to end this interview.
