 A second story for http://lilliemcferrin.com/five-sentence-fiction-marriage/

 This chair lift ride had been a whimsical last minute addition to the ceremony,  I knew it was a sign.
She had accepted my proposal, it was because of her upraising, she wanted to please. I knew I would be nothing but a burden, a millstone hung around her neck. In time she would grow to hate me and I couldn't live like that so I may as well speed things up. When we reached the highest point I slipped under the safety bar, it was the greatest gift I could give her; she is free.

Oh, wow. This is powerful. I just started catching on to what was going to happen with the last three words of sentence 4, but I still wasn't quite prepared for the actual execution of his plan. Your timing in this piece is perfect.

Over-achiever! Just kidding, of course... Write as many as you like! This was an interesting ending!
