Word Prompt-3-Love

My husband was from the old school, where speaking of love or romance wasn’t done.  Don’t get me wrong, he wasn’t the grab and roughly kiss type like John Wayne, but his family didn’t show affection outwardly, even to their children.  If love was in the conversation, he would always jokingly refer to a quote from his favorite movie, “Elmer Gantry”, starring Burt Lancaster and Jean Simmons. (1960):  “love is the morning and evening star”.  “Elmer Gantry is a satirical novel written by Sinclair Lewis in 1926 that presents aspects of the religious activity of America in fundamentalist and evangelistic circles and the attitudes of the 1920s public toward it”.Wikipedia
