    She didn't marry him, after all
    after all the planning
    after all the promises
    after everything they'd
    been through

    she didn't marry him
    she loved him,
    but
    he told her he'd probably
    always chase women

    looking back, she's relieved
    and grateful....no complications,
    no awkward family dinners...

    ...because of all the reasons
    he had for calling it off
    that final time they had it out

    sleeping with his brother
    in a moment of weakness
    is the one he'll never know
    about
