"I knew who you were when I asked you to marry me...I knew you were complicated. Challenging."
I stand there silently, watching his face while he searches for the words.
"I thought I could handle you. But I couldn't even handle me handling you."
He looks so sad. My heart wrenches with the truth of it. It's probably the most honest, real thing he's ever said to me. I feel hot tears start to fall down my cheeks.
