Sherry – 5
I didn’t love Daniel. He wasn’t handsome or charming or brilliant, he was the kind of person you have to go out of your way not to take advantage of.
To marry him would give our child legitimacy and also a father who would be more mother than I could ever be.
I knew he was insanely in love with me and would do whatever I wanted.
I made it clear I wanted a small quick wedding, didn’t care about a honeymoon right now. I told him that after the baby is born and things settle down, we could go away for a few days.
This made him believe that I would actually be more of a wife than name only.
