She finds him sitting at the kitchen table, quietly wiping a tear from his eye.
“What’s the matter darling?” she whispers.
The husband replies solemnly; “Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, I was 18 and you were only 17?”
“Yes I do,” she replies.
The husband pauses, “Do you remember when your Father caught us in the back seat of my car making love?”
Yes, I remember,” says the wife, lowering herself gently into a chair next to him.
The husband continues; “Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, "either you marry my daughter or I’ll send you to jail for 20 years’?”
“I remember that too,” she replied softly.
He wipes away another tear and says; “I would have been released today.”
