A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She puts on her robe and goes down stairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front him. He appears deep in thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of coffee. 

"What's the matter, dear?" she whispers as she steps intothe room. "Why are you down here at this time of night?"

The husband looks up, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating, and you were only 17?" he asks solemnly. The wife is touched thinking her husband is so caring and sensitive. 

"Yes, I do," she replies. 

The husband pauses. The words are not coming easily. "Do you remember when you father caught us in the back seat of my car?" 

"Yes, I remember," says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. 

The husband continues..."Do you remember when he shoved a 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 replies softly. 

He wipes another tear from his cheek and says... 

"I would have gotten out today!"
