Nevertheless, they broke up, and this is what he had to say, “You see, Mary has been a very good girl to me, especially while this whole love affair lasted. To me, I think the reason we broke up is from me. I did not want it to go on any longer because I am not ready to settle down. And that, I believe, Mary seems to want now”.
