I stared into your dad’s hazel-green eyes as several moments or so passed when I told your father.
He had surpassed all of my expectations for a boyfriend and over time he answered all four dating questions correctly after he asked me on a date, the first, second, third, and finally the fourth time.
Your father received dating wisdom, and etiquette lessons from his mother, two older sisters, and especially his father when he asked me the fourth time.
So, with your father’s entire family surrounding us and my mother standing next to me. I handed my framed graduation certificates to my mother.
I turned back to your father, threw 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.
I want you girls to know, your father was the horribly traumatic dating experience, and the reason I formulated the dating questions.
After your father’s fourth request to date me, we began building our foundation of friendship that blossomed into love fertilized with respect and commitment.
After three years of dating, and a two-year engagement, our relationship based on mutual friendship, respect, for one another immersed in love, has survived allowing us to wake to say, we love one another.
We have begun every day with a sideways kiss ( you know overnight bad breath and all ) and a hug.
We received an answering machine as a wedding gift and began leaving voice messages for one another throughout the day to hear the other’s voice to excite and soothe our souls.
We have had turbulent times but during any of those situations and circumstances, we would close our eyes, allowing memories of heartwarming times to reveal the love we share to overcome no matter what we were experiencing.
Since our first wedding anniversary, when we did not have much money. We exchanged handwritten letters expressing our love for each other.
Tuesday, next week, three days after your wedding Corina, 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.
We have evolved to build a loving foundation based on friendship, attraction, and respect for each other knowing our love is forever and continues to be a growing work in progress.
If you want to know horrible things your dad did on the first date and the cause of the four questions, he will tell you that story.
