In the original 1960s artwork (below) it’s quite a different story. Seventeen-year-old Gar is secretly engaged to Beth. He’s ready to get married right away. Beth wonders if they’re too young.
Gar’s sure, though. So sure that he encourages a couple of their 17-year-old pals to get married too.
Of course he’s right. I mean—waiting ’til you’re 18 to get married is so immature.
