    No - I Don't Play Well With Marriage

    No Way Jose

    And I'm Married!

    Married 7 years now.  Never thought I would get married and very much a loner.  But I'd be lonely without him, but always think there's something more.  I know I can't have it both ways, there just becomes a point in your life when you start questioning...
