"I don't think anyone expects to wake up one day two months into a marriage, but the fact is, we did. Running away isn't going to make that any less the case. If you don't want to be married to me, that's fine. I'd prefer it if we weren't, because I didn't want to marry you this way. But..." Dick sighed, realizing that this wasn't the kind of thing that was going to be won by logic. Besides, she was probably right.
"I love you. And I know that just makes things more complicated right now, but it's important that you know that. If you think you should go, clear your head, spend a few nights with Kimber or Bruce or someone, then you should go. But it's important that you know that no matter how scared you are, I love you, and I know you love me." He took his hand off of her shoulder, pressed a brief kiss to her forehead, and stepped back.
