According to this New Yorker profile of the current Senate Majority Leader, Reid’s eventually close relationship with Landra’s parents got off to a rough start. Mr. Gould apparently tried to break up the couple because the Goulds “wanted their daughter to marry a Jewish boy,” according to Reid.
Her father, Landra Reid told me, “would tear up Harry’s letters, hang up the phone on him. They had a fight in the front yard.” Reid has said that the fight ended when he knocked his future father-in-law, a chiropractor, to the ground. Landra says, “I remember a lot of yelling and pushing.” In 1959, when Harry was twenty and Landra was nineteen, they eloped. After a honeymoon dinner at a Chinese restaurant in Las Vegas, Landra called home to report the news; within days, she got a letter from her parents saying that, despite their misgivings, their daughter’s happiness came first. Reid now wears his father-in-law’s ring.
Until both of her Landra’s parents died, the Reids celebrated the Jewish holidays, the senior senator from Nevada told the New Yorker, adding: “My two oldest children have great affection for things Jewish, and my three younger children are aware of their mother’s lineage, and all of them are very proud of the fact that they are eligible for Israeli citizenship.”

I suspect my post catches many by surprise. I didn't know till today that he had beaten on his future father-inlaw.
A real man will take the time to earn the respect of a brides father and seek a blessing in marriage.Posted by: xppc at February 23, 2010 2:03 PM
What a self-loathing male he is. And, yeah, I'd put Biden in that category, too.Posted by: bmmg39 at February 23, 2010 2:31 PM
If perspective son-in-laws had to pass muster with perspective parent-in-laws, before marriage could occur, the planet would be nearly un-occupied by humans.
Or the fortunate few who were allowed to become one would have to be as prolific as the Duggars to maintain a sustainable population.
I have hard time imagining the diminutive Reid having the will, much less the strength, to push anyone to the ground with his limp wrists.
I bet Harry wears pink underwear emblazoned with cute little hearts.
