BetsyG remembers an old suitor and a dear friend.
BetsyG takes on the simple problem of answering the question, What Is Love?
Divorce has gotten a bum rap because, if you think about it properly, it’s really marriage that’s the problem. There has to be something wrong with the institution that it fails so often.
