For Better or For Worse

You don't know what a relationship will REALLY be like until you live together. Add a child to the mix and you have a trial by fire style merging. Today's family is as varied as flavors of ice cream. Traditional parents are now outnumbered by single family households and same gender parents don't even raise an eyebrow in major metropolitan cities. Yet each family celebrates their milestones, endure their own defeats and face their own hardships differently. It doesn't matter what your social status is or even your sexual orientation when you're making decisions affecting your family's future. As BD, the Minnie and I adjust to our new home we are hopeful that we continue to enhance each other's lives. That's what family really is about. Knowing that for-better-or-for-worse is just a way of saying that I love you enough to hang with you when everything is golden and when stuff ain't lookin' too hot. It isn't a deafeatist mentality, it is a concept exercised by loyalists from all walks of life.

Keep passin' the open windows...
