You asked me whom would I have made my wife had our path not crossed.You asked me what would have happened should we have not met before.
I understood what you are asking of me. And I know why you are asking me. Indeed, if you need me to repeat to you, I would have said the same thing here.
Because some things are best left to wait for a chance. Marriage is a sacred unity of life and I would have waited for you to appear in my life, even if it took me several more years in life.
Happy 9 years of companionship, my darling.
