For me, it will forever remain a mystery why my mother chose it yourself in-law of a half dozen contenders for my hand. And my heart ?! Yes, Alexander was a gentleman, educated and intelligent, he served as assistant prosecutor. He often visited the capital of duty, but not moved there, even marrying me. He was not a war that, according to my mother, too, was dignity. He had a good income and was not the oldest of all the suitors. And now I'm twenty, he was - thirty-two, we were married three years ago, together we go to parties and balls; but no force can make me fall in love with this man. I do not have to love him, to know his habits and virtues, if he had not bothered to tell me about them!
