Carol: Frank, wait! wait! There is something I have to tell you before I kiss you again. Okay? I want a divorce!
Frank: A divorce? We have only been married for 36 hours! I have had dates longer than that!
Carol: It wasn't your fault! I mean neither of us could have known the other was gonna be in Jamaica! I just don't know why I did something so impulsive! Maybe it was the magic of the islands, or maybe it was those big, pink drinks with those little teeny umbrella! This is crazy! we have gotten married and our kids haven't yet met!
P.S: Carol(widow) and Frank (widower) happened to meet each other in Jamaica and they got married there without their children knowing about their relationship!

May I ask what is the difference between the following?
"Neither of us could have known the other was gonna be in Jamaica!"
"Neither of us could know the other was gonna be in Jamaica!"
