In later years, the family often joked about Reuben's sisters' reactions to the engagement. Reuben had always received more of his sisters' attention than he ever wanted and when he announced that he was going to marry that 'new girl', Ethel Hymers, the Glewwe girls were shocked. No one knew anything about her or her family and she was only seventeen! Still, Reuben had made up his mind and he and Ethel were married at Riverview Baptist Church on Ethel's eighteenth birthday, June 7, 1928. The reception was held at her mother and stepfather's home in St. Paul.
Their honeymoon was not spent at some romantic vacation spot. Instead, Ethel insisted that Reuben take her back to the prairies of Saskatchewan and the hometown of Kincaid where she had such strong memories of her childhood. It was over eight hundred miles one way in Reuben's 1928 Whippet. The trip generated enough stories to keep the family amused for years to come."
