The reason for this is that there is no reliable documentation from this time period.
This Module has been updated to work with the newer serial number formats.
Since several models can share one chassis type (for example, the early brown 5G7 Bandmaster, 5G5 Pro and 5G12 Concert), this kind of interpretation is inaccurate.
Other types of wedding gifts such as kitchen appliances, household items and linens can be arranged in attractive individual groupings at one end of the display table or on separate tables.
Because a wedding gift display is a concentration of highly desirable items, I would consult local police officials about safety precautions.
Romantic marriage is finding a mate by all the standards of mass media, including the Hollywood movies, the television situation comedies and the advertising columns of your favorite periodicals."

Nevertheless, men still popped the question, and women still said "yes", assuming of course, the man produced an engagement ring, diamond engagement ring, bien sûr! Those wild South Dakotans had no waiting period to get married, causing many eager, lovesick couples to high-tail it to South Dakota to start their life of bliss together 3 whole days sooner!

If the reception is given at home, gifts may be displayed at the time in a separate room.
Singles apartment complexes began to spring up (starting in California and moving east, natch.)
