Man begs wife's forgiveness in $17,000 ad
JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) -- When five dozen roses didn't work, an estranged husband took out a full-page newspaper ad to ask his wife for
"Please believe the words in my letter, they are true and from my heart," read the ad in Tuesday's edition of The Florida Times-Union. "I can only
hope you will give me the chance to prove my unending love for you. Life without you is empty and meaningless."
Larry, who declined to give his last name, sent the $17,000 apology to Marianne, his wife of 17 years. She left him almost two weeks ago, he said.
A relative told him that Marianne saw the advertisement.
"She said my wife read the ad and started crying. But so far I've had no response from her," Larry said.
