My translation is: Iulius received a kiss from his wife and "Oh, Aemelia!" he exclaimed, "my perfect wife! Ten long years it has been, but my love is not diminished by that time. As I loved you then, just so I still love you now."
jamesbath wrote: Also, I see from your translation of the word amābam in the last sentence, that my translation of that word was incorrect. I understand it now, though -- amābam is imperfect and I translated it as if it were the perfect amāvī. Am I right?
