Her Dad Stopped Her From Marrying Her True Love, 50 Years Later She Discovered Something Amazing.
Janice Took Matters Into Her Own Hands
Prentiss may have thought that there was nothing going on between them, but Janice didn’t agree. When Prentiss didn’t show up for the school’s pre-Thanksgiving dinner, Janice decided to take control of the situation. She sent another student to look for him, but they came back empty-handed. So, Janice drove the 150 miles to his family home in Santa Maria.
Janice Showed Off How Charming She Was
When Janice arrived at their home, Prentiss and his family were having dinner. They were more than happy to welcome Janice to their table for Thanksgiving. Even though she was a bit surprised that Janice was brave enough to come all that way, Prentiss says that his mother was absolutely charmed by their unexpected visitor.
It Started Out As A Beautiful Affair
Janice and Prentiss were involved the typical college love affair. Since it was the 1960s, things had to be done a certain way, so the couple agreed that it was time to be married. They even put a notice in the local newspaper announcing their engagement, but stated that “No date has been set for the wedding." Janice’s father was not thrilled about that in the least.
For Love Or Money
Janice’s father didn’t agree with his daughter’s plans to get married. He made it clear that if Janice didn’t end things with Prentiss, he would cut her off financially. She tried to keep seeing Prentiss anyway, but her father made good on his threat. Janice’s mother attempted to help the couple by remortgaging her home, but it wasn't enough. If Janice didn’t have help from her father, she would need to leave Prentiss, or leave college.
The End Of Love
“We tried to figure things out but I guess we weren’t smart enough," Prentiss recalls. Unfortunately, the couple had to split ways. After attending Harvard Law, Prentiss went on to become a tax attorney. Janice ended up quitting school and moved to Nevada to start a swimming pool business. They both moved on to marry other people, but frequently crossed each other’s minds. They assumed their love was over.
