Marriage has its ups and downs, and it is important for the married couple to be there to support each other through it all. A couple that has been married for 20 years is sure to have been through quite a lot. Twenty years is a long time, so it is definitely touching and heartwarming for a husband or a wife to vividly remember minute details about their past. The color of the wife’s shirt or the liquor that the husband was drinking when they first met, the first movie that they’ve seen together – all these are details that can easily be forgotten.
She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of hot cocoa in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.
She watches as he wipes away a tear from his eye.
“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 drink, “It’s the 20th Anniversary of the day we met.”
She can’t believe he has remembered and starts to tear up.
The husband continues, “Do you remember 20 years ago when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only 15,” he said solemnly.
Once again, the wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive.
“Yes, I do” she replies.
The husband pauses……. The words were not coming easily. “Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?”
“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 make sure you spend the next 20 years in prison?’”
“I remember that, too” she replied softly…
He sighed as he wiped another tear away from his cheek and said, “I would have gotten out today.”
Now you know what’s the reason behind the husband’s tears. Thought that he was being sentimental? Well, sometimes, things don’t always look as they seem.
