Hello, I am 41yrs old on my second marriage. I have two children from previous marriage, ages 24 and 23 and have 1 child with my new husband age 1yr and I am pregnant with my fourth kid.

My first marriage began at the tender age of 16 (it was a shot gun wedding). We had two children and I was a victim of domestic violence for 9 years then I finally found the strength and courage to get the heck out of there.

I met my new husband 6yrs after my last, the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship lasted for about 6 1/2yrs when he proposed and I said yes. We moved to Upstate New York Feb of this year, it's a new enviorment for me, I am originally a Downstate girl and am having a hard time fitting into my neighborhood. I found this site via google and glad I did so and look foward to meeting and learning from others.
