A woman suddenly wak ….

A woman suddenly wakes up at the dead of the night to find her husband missing from their bed.

Alarmed, 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 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.

“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, and solemnly says: “Do you remember 25 years ago, when we were dating, and you were only 15?”

“Yes I do,” she replies.

The husband pauses – the words were not coming easily: “Do you remember when your father caught us while we were dating together?”

“Yes, I remember,” said the wife, taking a chair beside him.

The husband continued. “Do you remember when your dad shoved the shotgun in my face and threatened: ‘Either you marry my daughter, or I’ll send you to jail for 25 years?”

“I remember that too,” she replied softly, feelings of affection swelling in her…

He wiped another tear from his cheek, sighed deeply and added sadly: “Well, today I would have been released…”
