Just Married

Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball had barely known each other for 6 months when he proposed to her. It's amazing how love at first sight does really happen! Just think, Lucy had a steady boyfriend and fiance, director Alexander Hall, and they had been together for years! She was also active in dating. Desi was like Elvis Presley in those days, he had dated beautiful blonde actresses such as Betty Grable. He had also fallen in love the first time with a girl he nicknamed Freckles and he wanted to marry her.

Why would the two of them give up the entire forest for a tree?

After their first night together (which didn't take long), Lucy phoned Al Hall and broke up with him, Desi did the same with Freckles.

"I'm sorry, Freckles. Please know that the last thing I ever want to do is to hurt you. You, of all people. I don't know why I'm doing this, it's so unnatural."

"Desi, nothing is unnatural. All things happen for a reason."

Little did Freckles know that she had created a prophecy. Indeed, all things happens for a reason. In this case, the thing is I Love Lucy.
