I am very much looking forward to meeting you someday, Alcalaina. A life without love is a life not worth living. You seem to have been blessed with much love in your life.Agree completely. Before my current marriage (19 years and still going strong) I had two other marriages and a couple more very committed relationships. I don't regret any of them and I never wanted anybody else while I was with them. But you know when it's time to move on ... And I never had kids; as you say, they are the real life-long commitment.
