R, talking to B at the table — …first you date them to find out if you like them, and then you get married. That’s why Dad and Mom were dating before they got married.
B –Yeah. They dated when they met.
R — Dad, why did you date Mom? Did you think she was pretty?
Dad — I liked her.
R — So you wanted to date her for a few weeks before you got married?
Mom — We dated for five years.
R — Five years?! You wanted to be sure?
