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.

At age 13, Tina Lynn Akers was too young to consent to have sex with anyone, but she was not too young to marry her 29-year-old boyfriend and father of her child, and therein lies a legal twist.That twist, and some front-page attention from a national newspaper, have placed Tina, now Mrs. Compton and mother of 3-week-old boy, her family and various politicians running for office into the media spotlight.Hours after the story of the marriage of Tina, a seventh-grade dropout, and Phillip Wayne Compton Jr., a roofer, landed on the front of the Washington Post yesterday, the girl had signed a contract with "The Montel Williams Show" in which she promised not to talk to reporters.

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.

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.

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.

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.
