I had someone post a comment on here the other day that I should quit playing around and marry my girlfriend one day. That comment alone inspired the following post. I have no problem telling anyone publicly I have every intention of marrying my girlfriend. Her love has grown stronger through any and every circumstance we’ve experienced. My girlfriend is a beautiful and intelligent college graduate who put her life on hold for me. I want to show her how much I appreciate that once I am released. She could have easily moved on and left me in the wind once the s**t hit the fan like so many others did but she didn’t. When things became confusing, stressful, and weird she stayed. That shows the amount of character she possesses. She is honest, respectful, humble, loyal, brave, courageous, smart, witty, beautiful, and one of three loves of my life. The other two are my daughter and my mother. She is with me because she loves me. This experience has really allowed me to see her in a different light and she still looks good. Marriage to me is more than just a ceremony and a reception. It is more than tuxedos and gowns. Marriage to me is the marrying of minds. Morals, values, principles, character and so many other things play into marriage. Even though she is beautiful I tell her all the time that I’ve transcended the physical attraction with her. I am now attracted to her intellect and spirit. I am attracted to the laughs we share together. I am attracted to her free spirit. I am attracted to our healthy conversations. I am attracted to her point of view. I am attracted to her aura. I am attracted to and love all of her. I am attracted to the way she supports me. I am attracted to the way she loves and supports my mother mentally. I am attracted to the way she home schools and raises our daughter. I am attracted to her. She has grown with me. She has experienced the ups and downs and stayed. The so called “homeboys” ran. She is still staying strong along with my mother and daughter. She never once gave me the feeling that she wanted to leave and for that, I will give her the world (mentally, spiritually, physically, and financially). I also can’t wait to have more children with her. J I am looking to have at least five. I want a lot of kids to love and I want them all by the same woman. I love that woman to death. There are three people who deserve everything from me, my mother, girlfriend, and daughter. Once released, I can’t wait to help lighten their loads. I love my tribe. As the saying goes, “I have 99 problems but a [woman] isn’t one.” J I have my home in order.
