Good evening,

Could you help me with the phrase? I'm confused with the adverb. The context is about a couple. The text:

Nous décidâmes de rester ensemble même s'il n'était pas vraiment l'homme ideal.

My attempt:
We decided to keep together even though in fact he was not an ideal man.

Thanks in advance!

    We also use the expressions "the man of my dreams" and "Mr. Right". Either could work well in your context. (I personally would use "Mr. Right" because I love that expression. :) )
