Peter continued: "I told her at the time 'go, you don't have to deal with me', but she said no way - that she was in it for the long haul.

"She was so matter-of-fact about staying... I knew I'd spend the rest of my life with her.

If someone doesn't argue with you when you're at rock bottom and shutting them out, you can get through anything."

It seems now that they are rock solid and have put all this behind them.
