Mom, I don’t know if I can take it. If Eva goes to school in Paris … she’s almost certainly going to find some other person to fall in love with — and, how am I going to compete? I couldn’t afford to fly over there and kick someone’s ass — if I was a violent, possessive person.
No child of mine would ever do such a thing. But, she’s not going to fall in love with someone else. Don’t you know that “absence makes the heart grow fonder“?
Is that why you love God so much?
