“For five years I visited her house. I was very much in love but her father did not approve. I used to make up all kinds of excuses just to be around her. One day I collected all my courage and asked for her hand. He didn’t thought she wanted to marry me so he joked and said that he would approve as long as his daughter agreed. To his surprise she said yes. Now we have 13 children, 30 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.”
