    is some romance allowed :)

    Hi all..I'd like to say a sentence means that my wife is mine and my fingerprint solely blongs to me...and now is this sentence right?

    "My wife is mine like my fingerprint."

    or is there a better way to tell this feeling in English?

    Thank you all.

    My wife and I have a unique relationship. She is to me like my fingerprint; personal, individual, permanent and inseparable.

    Be careful with that. The police sometimes take your fingerprints...

    I don't think many women will find a comparison to fingerprints to be very romantic.

    I did say
    True Love..
    If you love someone,
    Set her free...
    If she comes back, she's yours,
    If she doesn't, she never was....
    Or how about;
    I love my dog as much as I love you...
    Cat Stevens.
    (I'm such a romantic old fool )
