In 1959, Burt Pugach met Linda Riss, and it was love at first sight. But when Linda discovered that Burt was already married and had children, she ended the relationship. In retaliation, Burt paid three assailants to toss lye in Linda’s face, which nearly blinded her for life. Burt served 14 years in prison for what he did.
But the story doesn’t end there. After Burt Pugach was released from prison, he renewed his relationship with Linda Riss, and they went on to enjoy 40 years of marriage together.
Their unusual story inspired the Documentary, Crazy Love, produced in 2007.
The Bible says a lot about the unique relationship between a husband and his wife. Men are commanded to love their wives with a godly love (Ephesians 5:25).
Recovery Step: If you are married, thank God for the crazy love that made that happen.
