'Issue Wife' started by D.A. Porter, and finished by Aubie56

http://storiesonline.net/s/48243/issue-wife

In an all too possible future, a war has claimed the lives of most of the young men in America. A rigid and deadly theocracy has arisen. It was decreed that in order to for the population to recover, military men who are not married would be issued a wife. This is the story of one of those men and the wife that was issued to him.

There are some westerns that involve contract brides, women who go west with fares paid by husbands to be, who meet at their wedding for the first time. I think there is one by Argon, I will check and get a reference by an endorsement.

Baltimore Rose is such a contract bride.

Not a story, but a movie: The Trap (1966) with Oliver Reed and Rita Tushingham. I just recently discovered that it is out on DVD. It was one of my inspirations for writing His Lucky Charm and is one of my favourite adventure movies. Oliver Reed in his best performance and an absolutely captivating Rita Tushingham!
There are also contract marriages in Colt45's Mayhem universe.

Don't forget Paint Your Wagon.

Haywood Holbrook: Dearly beloved. We have gathered together to grant this man, Ben Rumson, exclusive title to this woman, Mrs. Elizabeth Woodling, and to all her mineral resources. I have drawn up this Record of Claim which here and henceforth will be recognized as a certificate of marriage. So I ask you Ben, do you recognize this claim as a contract of marriage and do you take this woman to love honor and cherish?

Pardner: [after long silence] Oh, he does.

Haywood Holbrook: Elizabeth Woodling, do you take this man, Ben Rumson, to love, honor and obey him until death do you part.

Pardner: She does.

Haywood Holbrook: I now pronounce you claimed and filed as Mr. and Mrs. Ben Rumson.

And probably the line of the movie,

Horace Tabor: Wait a minute! You can't buy a woman for money.
Mad Jack Duncan: You just try and get one without it!

There were a lot of excellent lines in that movie, great dialogue, and some very good songs too.

And surprisingly (or perhaps not) Lee Marvin singing (growling?) "I was born under a wandering star" is better than Eastwood's abominable hatchet job on his song!

Yeah, I didn't think too much of his "I Talk to the Trees", but "Gold Fever" was very good.
"They call the Wind Mariah" was the best IMHO.

Thanks to Harve Presnell's incredible classical baritone voice and some great cinematography. :D

All-time classic. Who knew Lee Marvin could growl, er, sing?

The only DVD I can find is PAL format. Is there an NTSC version somewhere?

Oliver Reed's best performance? Better than "Women in Love"?

Buy the PAL format DVD. (Keeps the copyright police off your back)

Use one of many available programs to strip it to disk.

Use one of the many available programs to convert the disk file to an NTSC format DVD. (you may need a transcoding program to do the PAL to NTSC conversion before this step)

All of this will be legal since you purchased the original DVD, you are allowed to make one copy for backup purposes.

Depending on which programs you use you may lose the ability to jump to a given scene within the movie.

Problem is all those copy protection schemes kill that option as a rule. I am kind of old school. I always preferred to run a working copy of any purchased software including the operating system (DOS). Using the original just to make that working copy and storing the original usually in a closet.

Check your TV; the last one I bought worked with SECAM, PAL and NTSC as well as others; that seemed to be industry standard. I don't know about the DVD players - some are worldwide and some geographically limited but our UK one (originally used with a PAL TV) worked fine with a TV set to SECAM

You can re-code a lot of dvd players to play discs from anywhere as well. If you do a search with the make, model number and all areas code you can usually find some info how to do it. I found the info for mine and my sisters in Canada. How do you think the manufacturers set them up???
For some strange reason the disc drawer has to be open on some players.
