Stanton recalls a relationship with one young man she still calls the love of her life."I learned to cook with him, because he ate everything, even my mistakes, with great gusto and appreciation," she says. Sometimes we'd sit in front of the fireplace singing country-western songs at the top of our voices.
Whether this kind of romance leads to a happy marriage, of course, may depend on luck or destiny."He would denigrate me by saying I might have had brain smarts but didn't have a lick of common sense," says Stanton.
