Hi glad you decided to check this out. I am a 31 almost 32 year old woman. My childhood was a little rough due to problems with my parents. This led me to a dangerous lifestyle of promiscuity. Eventually with the help of friends and a great counselor I got everything straightened out.
I have been in a relationship with my husband for 10 years now. His childhood was similar to mine and now we are working together to grow. We have a beautiful 8 year old daughter who will never suffer the kind of childhood we had.

My interests are wrinting, reading, and music. I run 2 businesses out of my home that are both going quite well. My best friend of 20 years is a homosexual man with HIV. He is more like a brother than just a friend and I have become active in the Gay rights movement and HIV/AIDS research both because of his situation and because I feel a person is a person regardless of age, race, sex, sexual orientation or any illnesses they may have.
I am not an advocate of marriage. In spite of the fact that I am in a very successful marriage I do not feel that it is right for everyone. Only those who are truly ready to get married should. However anyone who feels they are ready to be married should have the option, including homosexuals! Sometimes I feel the world would be a better place if the government kept their nose out of it and allowed marriage ceremonies to be religious occasions as they were meant to be. If your religion recognizes your marriage that should be enough why kill a tree to print a marriage license. Why not just allow people to decide their own commitments?
