Do you have a translation of the "I have no husband and I shall never marry" passage? Thank you!

Hi Anon! Thanks for your question. Here is that quote from Phantom in Leroux’s original, and my translation of it:

« C’est un engagement que je ne vous demande point, et c’est une promesse que je ne vous ferai pas! prononça la jeune fille avec fierté. Je suis libre de mes actions, monsieur de Chagny; vous n’avez aucun droit à les contrôler et je vous prierai de vous en dispenser désormais. Quant à ce que j’ai fait depuis quinze jours, il n’y a qu’un homme au monde qui aurait le droit d’exiger que je lui en fasse le récit: mon mari! Or, je n’ai pas de mari, et je ne me marierai jamais! »

Translation:

"That is a pledge that I do not ask of you, and it is a promise that I shall not make you!" spoke the young woman proudly. "I am a free agent, monsieur de Chagny; you have no right to control my actions and I will ask that you desist henceforth. As for what I have done during the past fortnight, there is only one man in the world who would have the right to demand that I give him an account: my husband! Well, I have no husband, and I shall never marry!"

It’s even better in French!!!

Because I just re-read this scene and it’s still hilarious. Drunk Garnier for the win!
