CASE HISTORY: Nan and Jim fell in love their junior year of college and wanted to announce their engagement. Nan's mother opposed all suitors of her· daughter, threatening to take Nan out of school if the engagement were announced. Nan and Jim tried to win the approval of Nan's mother in vain. They decided to announce their engagement anyway. Parental approval was given on the condition that the couple would wait a year after graduation to marry. Nan's mother objected again, but Nan and Jim planned the wedding. Realizing she had lost, Nan's mother helped put on a lovely wedding, and is now devoted to the couple, who are happily married and have a son two years old.
