Despite the fact that Gradsky himself asked to postpone more – especially in a situation where he began to have big health problems, and every step was taken with difficulty.
Friends of the couple suspected that the relationship in her went wrong even before the illness of Alexander Gradsky.
“Where are you in a hurry?” – Alexander Borisovich retold the words said to Marina and explained that he had already provided children for everyone, including real estate.
