Love means never saying you’re sorry — maybe

There's a few words that are fairly hard to say. "I love you" is usually the hard one for many; I know the ex didn't utter those words until we had been dating about a year. Don't ask why I married that fool. The only explanation I can give is that I love a challenge.
