Shopping for maternity wedding dresses wasn’t what she wanted to be doing, but what choice did she have? She was 7 months pregnant and was being forced into a marriage by a man she did not want to marry.
Her mother had forced her into this marriage. The man had money, and they needed money, her mother had said. And how lucky she was that he would even take her after disgracing the family and herself with this child. But how was it right to marry another when he didn’t love her and she didn’t love him. She loved only one man. But he was gone. Her true love was gone, never to return to her.
