This is a moral test of oneself. Whether or not you can maintain loyalty. Because being loyal is very important.
Nationality is not so important when it comes to a marriage. What matters is love. Love and fidelity.
You can’t go far in this world by relying on people. People are loyal until it seems opportune not to be.
Like it or not, Marianne, you married a street kid, and the street taught me that you give and you get loyalty from your friends. And loyalty means a lot to me.
