A woman awoke during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She put on her robe and went downstairs to look for him. She found him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appeared to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watched as he wiped a tear from his eye and took a sip of coffee. "What's the matter, dear?", she whispered as she stepped into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?". Her husband looked up from his coffee and said, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 16?" he asked solemnly. "Yes I do dear!" she replied. 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 do remember that very well" 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."
