    Wedding Anniversary

    The Aprahamian Family was at their parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary Party. Many of the guests were finding it difficult to keep straight all the names and what had happened in the lives to the parent's six sons: who were they married to and what was their career?

    Several of the guests, had stopped to discuss this with Chuck, who was catering the event. They all knew Chuck, and knew that he was the fourth son and was divorced. They were trying to pool together all the other information that they had heard and knew. They pooled together these facts:

    1. The oldest son is married to Karen and he has a twin brother named Leonard.
    2. Steve and the Waste Supervisor have wives named Nancy and Debby.
    3. Mike is a Lawyer and is married to Michelle.
    4. Greg is married to Tammy and the Naval Engineer is married to Karen.
    5. The PhD Chemist is not Leonard, George, or Greg.
    6. Leonard is married to Nancy and was born between Steve and George.
    7. The youngest son is a Lawyer.

    Chuck said that all the information was accurate, but he had to run to check on dinner. But he told them that they had almost enough information to put the six sons in order, give their jobs and also list their wives. But he said that if they thought about it like a homework puzzle that his brother the High School Teacher might give, that they should be able to figure it out.

    Your task is to figure out this information.

    My interpretation leads me to this:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
    <table border=1><td>Chuck</td><td>Leonard</td><td>Steve</td><td>Mike</td><td>George</td><td>Greg</td><td>Divorced</td><td>Nancy</td><td>Debby</td><td>Michelle</td><td>Karen</td><td>Tammy</td><td>4</td><td>2</td><td>3</td><td>6</td><td>1</td><td>5</td><td>Caterer</td><td>Waste Manager</td><td>Chemist</td><td>Lawyer</td><td>Naval Engineer</td><td>Teacher</td></table>
