Rotary Club of Plimmerton
Les Callear gave us his Viewpoint tonight about marriage. He said,

'I have been married for 57 years. We were young when we married - about 12 years old. Fifty-seven years of marriage - to some this would be the equivalent of two life sentences so I think I have some experience of what makes a good marriage and I would like to share this with you.

'So that's it - the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
'I am about two-thirds of the way through the book. Next week I am seeing my psychiatrist and my divorce lawyer.'
