I'll marry you. Don't you want to ask me any questions?
Thank you. You're making it easier for me.
Whatever your reason, I shall accept it. What I want to find in our marriage will remain my own concern. I exact no promises and impose no obligations. Incidentally, since it is of no importance to you, I love you.
