Tired of his mother constantly nagging him to marry, Dustin Wright knew there was only one thing to do. He'd find a mail order bride that his mother would not approve of. That would serve her right for constantly meddling! When he picked up one of the Matrimonial News issues that his mother left lying around, his eyes fell on the words 'expecting a child,' Dustin knew he'd found his future wife.
