The Wedding, March 18, 1991
Powell's pregnancy did not completely settle the issue.
Jobs again began balking at the idea of marriage,
even though he had dramatically proposed to her both at the very beginning and the very end of 1990.
Furious, she moved out of his house and back to her apartment.
For a while he sulked or ignored the situation.
Then he thought he might still be in love with Tina Redse;
he sent her roses and tried to convince her to return to him, maybe even get married.
He was not sure what he wanted, and he surprised a wide swath of friends and even acquaintances by asking them what he should do.
Who was prettier, he would ask, Tina or Laurene?
Who did they like better? Who should he marry?
In a chapter about this in Mona Simpson's novel A Regular Guy,
the Jobs character "asked more than a hundred people who they thought was more beautiful."
But that was fiction; in reality, it was probably fewer than a hundred.
