    Ten years ago, Gina and Tom's marriage

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Ten years ago, Gina and Tom's marriage was all love and passion, but then it had gone stale. They tried everything to revive it, from trips abroad to counselling, but they both knew it would soon die like a candle and would never burn again.

    Would this version be OK?
    I imagined it happened sometime in the past.
