"I've never known this kind of love before _ it's so perfect and complete _ and mature ... I've never loved anyone in my life before one third as much as I love you _ and I never will (well, as far as that goes _ I'll never love anyone else _ period)."
In September, she discusses returning her engagement ring. Less that eight months later, she was married to her first husband, Conrad Nicholson Hilton.
