M. Ruth Rothgaber, a homemaker and opera enthusiast who was honored with her husband last year as the longest-married couple in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, died of cancer yesterday at Stella Maris Hospice in Timonium. She was 92. Mrs. Rothgaber was born M. Ruth Anderson in Winthrop, Mass., the daughter of a steamship company official, and spent her early years in Baltimore. She attended the Institute of Notre Dame until her father was transferred to Norfolk, Va., where she graduated from St. Mary's Academy in 1928.

America is a nation divided, according to the thinking of those who make TV. There are the sharp, hip, sophisticated people who live in the major markets. Then there are the simple-minded hicks and rubes - anyone who doesn't live in a major urban center. A really major urban center. Illustrative of how TV thinks, a network executive once referred to Atlanta-based Matlock as "a rural show." The latest example of this snobbish thinking, Married to the Kellys, is one of the most flagrant.

When the two midshipmen sat down at his Crofton dinner table four years ago, Greg Baur made one thing clear: His daughter was off-limits. Baur was a little worried that becoming a "sponsor parent" at the Naval Academy - agreeing to play host to students on holidays and weekends throughout their four years - could backfire. After all, Mids can be fairly handsome in their uniforms. And Joshua Lewis, one of the two at his table that night, was only a year older than his daughter Jessica.

Five years after marrying into the Kizilos band of brothers (Peter, Paul and Mark), Rina Kizilos received the gift she'd long been waiting for: sister-in-law Nancy, who married Peter in 1995. "I liked her right away," said Rina, 38, who has been married to Paul for 16 years. "Here was a woman I could be close to." The two sisters-in-law were equally delighted when Melissa married Mark seven years ago. With seven children ages 10 and younger among them, the three women share parenting advice and recipes, take walks and throw birthday parties, and find time for girls' nights out. "I have said many times, they are like the sisters I never had," said Melissa, 38. "I trust and rely on them.

Newly appointed Circuit Judge Karen Murphy Jensen of Caroline County is providing a good example of how to handle problems dealing with conflicts of interest arising out of marriage -- treating the issue seriously but solving it with common sense.In today's world of working couples, it's common to find husbands and wives in the same field. That two lawyers happen to be married should not disqualify one from being appointed to the bench. But the courts must ensure that fairness, impartiality and equity are not compromised by favoritism.

At Howard High School, the students aren't the only ones holding hands by the lockers. The school boasts three sets of married teachers, plus a pair of instructional assistants who are married to each other. Two of the couples met on the job, and two were married when they started working at the Ellicott City school. All say they like the perks of working together: carpooling, sharing long summer vacations and knowing that nobody else understands a teacher's frustrations and joys quite like another teacher.

WASHINGTON - James Packard knew that the marriage license hanging in a frame on his bedroom wall carried little legal weight even before the California Supreme Court ruled the document - and about 4,000 others just like it - invalid. After all, Packard married a man, and only a handful of jurisdictions in the world permit same-sex marriages. So Packard, who married his longtime partner, Erwin Gomez, at the San Francisco courthouse last spring, barely paused yesterday in the midst of planning an elaborate September wedding reception to mourn the decision.

WESTLAND, Mich. --- To the presidential candidates, the women's vote is a complex formula - a mix of likes and dislikes from the laboratories of pollsters and pundits, a mystery locked in a kind of genetic code. To win, the campaigns believe, all they have to do is crack the code. And so the candidates are aiming their stump speeches, TV ads and debate tactics at a precise audience gleaned from months of study - women known as the WM2 (white, working, married, mothers), also dubbed the "four Ms" (married, munchkins, mortgages, mutual funds)

At 93, Harriet Kennedy isn't so good with dates and places anymore, but she can recall in detail her wedding to Robert Kennedy, now 96, nearly three-quarters of a century ago. "It was a beautiful summer day - July 30, 1929," she said in her home on Putty Hill Avenue in Parkville, which the couple has owned for five decades. "It was nice and warm." Yesterday, the Kennedys were honored at a World Marriage Day Mass as the longest-married couple - at 73 years - in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
