Ono: 'I Wanted To Marry A Priest'
Yoko Ono insists her dreams of marrying a priest came true when she wed John Lennon - because he was more spiritual than most. The artist/musician grew up wanting nothing more than to support a religious man and help him raise a family. She tells America's More magazine, "In my 20s, I wanted to be a writer, and I think I am. I wanted to marry a priest and, as his wife, take care of the Sunday school. "This almost became true - John's spirit was priest-like." Ono also dreamed that she and Lennon would live a peaceful life together forever - until her world was shattered by the former Beatle's assassination in 1980. She adds, "I thought I would be with my husband, retired and living a peaceful life. Of course, that dream went out the window."
