No Wife Jo is like all of us in that she's retired, even though half of her body is somewhat frozen and spastic. Her pet peeve regarding prejudice is in the non responsiveness of the landlord, she has to push them to get them to do anything. Jo worked for many years in retail, had children, has 9 grandchildren now, and keeps house without an aide, even though her mobility has decreased significantly in the last 5 years. We've been emotionally married for almost 7 years and reaffirmed our vows last year.
Jo is the 4th and probably the final wife of the family, a family that spans almost 35 years.
