I've always thought the sickest person in this situation was his now wife. She married him anyway?
I might be able to get past a little slap, but to knock me out like that! Hell no! I don't give a damn how much in love I am in. There will be no marriage, and his a$$ would be in jail. Worst yet, I would have smiled, said I love you baby, made love to him, and once he fell asleep, I would have pulled the gas can out from behind the bed and lit his a$$ up. I would have not killed him. Once he became disfigured a little bit. I would put the flames out and called 911. Then I would have said 'baby you're going to live, but every time you look in the mirror and see your disfigured face, you are going to think about what you did to me.'
