A few pieces of information would be helpful. In what month will you visit the Everglades ? Will the two of you have a car ? How many nights can you spend in that area ?

I remember when I was kid, hearing stories of how English fathers were keen to get their daughters married off too. Tales from around 1900 I suppose!

GarryRF raises an interesting point about how our perceptions change and differ on the age of "maturity."

Louis XIII of France became king at 8; he assumed full power at 15, then the age of majority. His son, Louis XIV, followed the same path; at 15 he returned from exile during the revolt of the...
