He Had Asked Me to Marry Him
"No matter how good he would treat you, I would treat you better"
He had asked me to marry him, but I wasn't sure. I needed more time to consider his proposal. I wasn't confident he loved me enough to truly love me for a lifetime.
Days passed. I was in California and he was in Utah. An old boyfriend who had been in Europe contacted my parents and mentioned wanting to talk to me. I was curious and wanted to talk to my old boyfriend as well.
I called my current sweetheart and told him that Mr. Ex was hoping to talk to me and that I was considering calling him.
After a moment of quiet from the other side of the phone, my sweetheart says, "No matter how good he would treat you, I would treat you better." In that moment, everything changed.
We have been married for 18 years. I still believe he loves me enough to love me for a lifetime.
