    That was the dumbest thing I've ever done.

    We hated each other from the first day. Had three unplanned pregnancies then still married him knowing I couldn't stand him. I tried to call it off the day I got married. This is why I will never get married again.

    I Married Because Of The Church

    When I met my husband, we were friends. I was going through some hard times and he gave me stability. When he wanted more than friendship, I didn´t have the courage to reject him. So we lived together for a while. This didn´t go over well with my Christian background and...

    I would never date someone just because I don't want to be alone. Just because I'm alone doesn't mean that I'm lonely and desperate.
