Then he went back to Flanders: Constance, his wife, was then twenty-three years old, and he was twenty-nine.
His hold on life was marvellous. Then he was pronounced a cure, and could return to life again, with the lower half of his body, from the hips down, paralysed for ever. This was in They came to start housekeeping and married life in the rather forlorn home of the Chatterleys on a rather inadequate income.
Clifford had a sister, but she had departed. Otherwise there were no near relatives. The elder brother was dead in the war.
Crippled for ever, knowing he could never have any children, Clifford came home to the smoky Midlands to keep the Chatterley name alive while he could. He was not really downcast.

She had big, wondering eyes, and a soft mild voice, and seemed just to have come from her native village. It was not so at all. Her father was the once well-known R.
Her mother had been one of the cultivated Fabians in the palmy, rather pre-Raphaelite days. Between artists and cultured socialists, Constance and her sister Hilda had had what might be called an aesthetically unconventional upbringing.
They had been taken to Paris and Florence and Rome to breathe in art, and they had been taken also in the other direction, to the Hague and Berlin, to great Socialist conventions, where the speakers spoke in every civilized tongue, and no one was abashed.Name: Chris Atkinson Email: christopherdotatkinson43atntlworlddotcom Years_at_school: 19 - 19 Date: 24 Apr Time: Comments.
