A letter to an imaginary future mother-in-law.

Dear Ms. [Maidenname],

I hope this letter finds you well. Yes, I'm the boy (man?) your daughter has told you about. I wanted to tell you what a pleasure it's been getting to know your daughter. I never dreamt I would meet someone quite like her, even though she's the kind of woman I'd only dreamed of. I hope that I can take the kind of care of your daughter that you'd always hoped for, but most importantly, I hope that I can make her happy. Right now, that's the most important thing in my life, and I can't see it changing. So I'll keep this short and tell you plainly that I hope you have room in your heart for another person, because your daughter does.

Wishing you love,
