Waiting and waiting

Mrs Ghosh, 67, is garrulous but friendly and helpful and hence has a large circle of friends.
Her husband, 75, is the opposite, a man of very few words, reserved to the point of being unsocial, and only seen in public going to and from the vegetable seller. He is the antithesis of your typical, chatterboxer Bong male.
Here’s a conversation between the two:
Mrs Ghosh: I have read somewhere – and my friends also tell me – that most men regret getting married. What do you have to say?
Mr Ghosh: (Long silence).
Mrs Ghosh: I am waiting for your answer.
Mr Ghosh: (Very long silence).
Footnote:
Mrs Ghosh: Six months later I am still waiting for his answer.
