About 3:30 in the morning, a wife wakes up to find she is alone in the bed and she can hear her husband crying uncontrollably.
She gets up and starts to look for him.
He’s not in the bathroom, living room, or in the kitchen.
As she passes the laundry room, she hears his faint sniffels coming from the basement.
She turns on the light and goes downstairs to find him.
Finally, she finds him huddled in the corner, rolled up into a ball, and crying hysterically.
She runs over to him and asks why he is crying.
He says, “Do you remember when we got married twenty (20) years ago?”
She looks at him and says, “Yes”.
He says, “Well, a couple of months before, your dad said that I could marry you or go to jail.”
She says, “I already know that. I don’t see what the problem is.”
He says, “Don’t you see!!! I would have gotten out today!”
