A life sentence

Topic: A life sentence

A woman awakes during the night to find that her

Husband was not in their bed. She puts on her robe

And goes downstairs to look for him. She finds

Him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup

Of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in

Deep thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wiped a tear from his eye and

Takes a sip of his coffee.

"What's the matter, dear", she whispers as she

Steps into the room. "Why are you down here at

This time of night"?

The husband looks up from his coffee, "Do you

Remember 20 Years ago when we were dating, and

You were only 16?" he asks solemnly.

The wife is touched to tears thinking that her

Husband is so caring and sensitive. "Yes I do!"

She replies.

The husband paused. The words were not coming

Easily. "Do you remember when your father caught

Us in the back seat of my car making love?"

"Yes, I remember" said the wife, lowering herself

Into a chair beside him.

The husband continued.......

"Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my

Face and said, 'either you marry my daughter, or

I will send you to jail for 20 years'?"

"I remember that too" she replied softly. He

Wiped another tear from his cheek and said......

"I would have gotten out today."

Ya'll are so over dramatic most women arnt that bad. Plus staring down the barrel of a shotgun "I'll take the jail time" just seems like the wrong anwser.
