I am going to be 32-years-old in December. I have been married for 10 years, I have two amazing and wonderful children.
I write poetry, volunteer, enjoy reading, painting and spending time with my family. I have had some bumpy relationships, some good ones and some that should never had started.
I am a survivor of date rape, and advocate for women's rights, and pro-choice. I think relationships make life interesting. I love when love is new or renewed between two people. I am a romantic at heart, but a realist by compromise.
I love the concept of love at first site and soul mates. I have yet to meet any one who would say that they fell in love at first site, and honestly, has anyone found a solute? I think relationships of all kinds, require work, dedication, sacrifice, sweat, tears and compromise.
I also think that we all jump to get married to soon. There should be a law that prohibits marriage until you are at least 30.
You spend your school years trying to survive, then you need your twenties to figure out who you became, and where you should go, plus giving you the opportunity to date and experience other personalities. Then after ten years of this, you get married in your 30's with a sense of who you are, what you want, and how as a couple you can obtain, maintain and expand your hearts, souls and passions.
Everyone has different views. No two people have identical views. They may be similar, but we all arrive at our viewpoints differently, either by experience or observation.
