I wasn't ready for marriage. I'm mature in other ways, but not when it comes to getting along with women. The thing that led to the big blowup was my going away for a weekend of skydiving. Well, what's so terribly wrong about that? If a man can't go out on a weekend with male friends and take a couple of jumps, what kind of a marriage has he got? So I left one evening and came home the following afternoon - and, of course, she was gone. SO, in an interview as to what went wrong with his five-week marriage to Lana Wood
