We were still posing for photos when I stared into your dad’s green eyes after a moment or so passed when I told your father. He had surpassed all of my expectations of a boyfriend answering all four dating questions correctly after he asked me on a date, the first, second, and third times.

But, your father’s fourth time asking me on a date, was after he had received dating wisdom, and etiquette lessons from his mother, two older sisters, and especially his father.

So, with your father’s entire family surrounding us both and my mother standing next to me. I handed my framed graduation certificates to my mother.
I turned back to your father, throwing both of my arms around his shoulders to hug him, and I began passionately french kissing him much to his surprise.

After a moment of kissing, I said aloud, “Yes!” to his marriage proposal.

You girls know, your father was the horribly traumatic dating experience, and the reason I formulated the dating questions. I will tell you all what your dad did another day.

But, your father and I began building our foundation of friendship with love, and after three years of dating, and a two-year engagement, we formed a relationship based on mutual friendship, respect, for one another immersed in love. Our relationship remains a work in progress when we awoke this morning, to say, we love one another.

We have begun our day with a sideways kiss ( you know bad breath and all ) and a hug. Years ago we started leaving one another voice messages throughout the day to hear each other’s voices that soothe our soul and excites us both.

Now, we have had turbulent times over the years.
But during any of those circumstances, I would close my eyes, allowing our heartwarming memories to cascade over me, revealing the love we share to overcome any bad times.

On our first wedding anniversary, we did not have much money, so we began exchanging handwritten letters expressing our love we have for each other.

This Tuesday Corina three days after your wedding, I will present to your father my 37th-wedding anniversary letter of love and commitment to the man I will love forever, your father, Johnathan Glasner. He is my husband, the father of triplets adult daughters and grandfather of five.

So, Corina, I knew I loved your father when I accepted his fourth offer to date, and we have evolved to build upon our friendship, attraction for each other, as our love is a forever growing work in progress.
