Huh? What did I do? No, it is not possible for me to put in a dislike under your screen name.

Our marriage vows didn't include "obey" your spouse.
My brother in law(RIP BIL) preacher man, married us and he probably knew better.

Both of us have been married before, and we talked about everything.
Thankfully, we don't have any of the problems you mentioned.
I will say, for the most part we do respect gender roles. I've never taken out the trash or washed my car. He's never done the laundry.
He does cook his special dishes; chili and fried fish. I won't fry fish. I'll bake it.
I'm thankful for my spouse a a good marriage.
My first marriage was scary awful.

I am so happy for you and your husband and Family.

So many of us do not get to share such wonderful stories of marriage, love, family, etc.

It is beautiful that you share yours with us, so we can know that it is real and does happen ... :tv1:

Even if we have not seen it in our neighborhood, we can login here and know it goes on somewhere.

That is very encouraging.

To the young Sisters looking for husbands - and the young Brothers looking for wives.

Know that it can be right and good and wonderful ... if you choose the right person! ... :love:

Thank you Sister for sharing ... please continue to keep the hope alive for all of us.

Much Much Love and Peace!

Liberty ... i had started a reply to you last night (that i decided not to post) ... but it showed up with Sister IFE's post above ... i deleted it ... but just in case you saw it and was wondering where it went ... that's it ... :)

(i decided not to post it because it was a bit off-topic - too much of a stretch for this thread - i think)

Love You!

When you become "one" with a person you do forsake all others to complete that process. A man leaving his mother, a woman leaving her home. The two cleaving onto each other is how it's suppose to be done.

Sister Destee how have you been? It's been a while but I'm glad to be back. I see many changes so I'll browse around to get my feel of things again

Hi Brother shaka64 ... Welcome Home! :heart:
Destee, my Sister!! I am sending you greetings with love from a rainy and relentless overcast Michigan! But you continue to bring sunshine into my life and for that I am eternally grateful! I LOVE the new look and features in the community. I hope you're enjoying your best life. Love and peace...:heart:
