(On the telephone, long-distance)
Me: "So, um, wow. You're pregnant. Well, after all this discussion about what you want to do about it, it seems like we're pretty serious about our relationship."
Me: "I mean, well, I realize that I really do love you very much."
Her: "I love you very much, too."
Me: "And this whole thing about me moving to Bellingham to be close to you in Vancouver and all the problems with one of us moving to the other one's country and not being able to work..."
Me: "I think maybe we should get married. We seem to really love each other and be serious about wanting to be together, whether you decide to have an abortion or have a baby. And we could be together without any problems and live in whichever country."
Me: "So, what do you think? Should we just get married regardless of this pregnancy thing?"
