A few years ago, a movie came out titled, “Letters to Juliet.” If you haven’t seen it, very briefly, a young lady named Sophie helps an older lady named Claire to find “her Lorenzo” – a man Claire fell in love with when they were teen-agers. Sophie and Claire and Claire’s grandson travel around Italy searching for this Lorenzo, but they also run into a number of other Lorenzos in their quest for the one Lorenzo.
In one scene, they find a Lorenzo who is not the one. His wife, however, implores, “Take him! Take him!” You can see part of this scene in the trailer below.
There is a lady in our congregation who I think likes my husband. She is about our age and she is married to a man who is fifteen years older than she is. They’ve been married for about 3 or 4 years. Her husband’s health doesn’t seem to be very good.
Every week at church, this lady manages to get into a conversation with my husband, asking his advice about something.
I think they would be perfect for each other.
My husband is smarter than she is (which isn’t saying much – oh, that was mean!), so she would always look up to him. Even though she is kind of opinionated sometimes, she would be a good, submissive wife for him. And he has always told me, ever since we got married, that I put too much sugar in desserts. She is forever talking about how she puts less sugar in desserts because they just have too much sugar in them. She seems pretty content with having not much money, so she probably wouldn’t have any problem with the income my husband makes, the way I do. And she is skinnier than I am, so my husband would like that.
Like I said, I think they would be perfect for each other.
Every time I see them together, I want to implore, “Take him! Take him!”
