The reason I created this site is because I think being married to a man that is wonderful is getting more and more rare now days. It is so great when a man can be a great husband and a great father. I think being legally married to someone is something special. I think when a man is willing to stand in front of a large crowd, and announce to everyone that he wants to marry a woman, he is declaring himself as belonging just to her, and he is declaring her as his own. I think that is so great.
I am a Christian woman. And I believe that a man and woman should be married especially when they have children. I think its important for a child to have a stable home. i dont care if they are step children, foster children, or adopted children, or natural children, or blended families. I believe it is important for a child to be in a stable home, and their parents should be positive role models and encourage them to do the right thing.
I am not trying to claim to be perfect myself. My parents did not get married until I was 5. They got divorced when i was about 16. And I got pregnant before I was married to my Wonderful husband. And we married 7 months before our child was born. I dont believe anyone is perfect, but I do believe we should try to be as good as we can be for ourselves and our children.
Mothers write me when they get blocked, and ask why. Some of them are more harsh then those simple words, and some people as why, and then respect my opinion. In MY opinion, marriage is something different then any other form of relationship. So I created this website for happily legally married people. I realize that some people believe that common law marriage and being engaged and dating for 20 years is just like being legally married. But I do not agree. People write angry emails to me, about how my opinion and thoughts are wrong. But thats alright. everyone is different.
Ok, this is getting kind of long. I just thought I would reach out and open up.
