  • I am glad to hear I am not the only one. PPL think I am nuts when I say I am not married or they think there is something wrong in our relationship. I have been with him longer then my parents were together.

  • I feel the same way just because there is no ppr work doesnt mean we can't love each other as much as a married couple. He is my soul mate and def dont have to get married to provr that to anyone else
