    Nothing Beats That Feeling Of Pure Love

    I believe in monogamy. I believe that when two people meet and realize that they all of a sudden do not desire anybody else, that's when they choose to be monogamous. Divorce rates are high but not due to people just wanting to have sex with someone else, it's because they got...
