Laura and George Bush's wedding day
PAGE 8
Three months later, George and Laura, both 31, were married at her childhood church in Midland. A mother of one of her friends proclaimed that "the most eligible bachelor in Midland is marrying the old maid of Midland."

Laura says she just laughed at the comment, as she's really four months younger than her husband. "All our friends were married. George and I were literally the last ones of all of our friends. That's why we had to marry each other, I guess," she jokes.

The ceremony was small, simple and intimate. "We were the older couple at 31 getting married, and of course we'd both been in lots of weddings with lots of bridesmaids and so we didn't have any," she says. "We were thrilled to find each other."
