    When Bernie, a passionate birdwatcher, met Sabina

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    When Bernie, a passionate birdwatcher, met Sabina, his future wife, she gave him an ultimatum to chose between her and birds. He chose her -- the decision he would deeply regret later on.

    Re: When Bernie, a passionate birdwatcher, met Sabina

    It's fine except for the last sentence. I'd write one of these:

    He chose her, a decision he would later deeply regret.
    He chose her. He would later deeply regret that decision.
    He chose her, a decision he would come to deeply regret in time.

    I would not use later on. It suggests a near future to me.
