Default Anybody here know Japanese?

I have a customer requesting something to be engraved on a knife in Japanese. He used Google translate (I guess) and sent me pictures. I just wanted to run it by someone that possibly knows if it is 100% correct.

The saying he wants engraved is "Always my girl"

These are the pictures he sent:





Are these characters correct?

Is he going to stab her, so no one else will ever be with her?

Google’s English-Japanese translator is decent but not great. I’ll send you a PM tomorrow with the correct kanji.

Edit: Are they boyfriend and girlfriend? Engaged? Married? Something else? It matters if you want it to be correct.

It is his wife. This will be for her. I need the correct characters - they will be engraved. An explanation would be cool too.

Capt.Obvious here...
Why don't you ask him to print clearly on a piece of paper what he wants on the knife.
Take a picture and send it to you...
Then you go and use the characters he gave you?

I was going to suggest finding a native speaker. You can't always mix words like we do in English, it could have a different meaning.
