A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee. â€œWhatâ€™s the matter, dear?â€, she whispers as she steps into the room, â€œWhy are you down here at this time of night?â€. The husband looks up from his coffee, â€œDo you remember 25 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 16?â€ he asks solemnly. â€œYes I doâ€ she replies. The husband pauses. The words are not coming easily. â€œDo you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car making love?â€ â€œYes, I rememberâ€ says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. The husband continues. â€œDo you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, either you marry my daughter, or Iâ€™ll send you to jail for 25 years?â€ â€œI remember that tooâ€ she replies softly. He wipes another tear from his cheek and says, â€œI wuld have gotten out todayâ€.
