Some people say you only get one great love in your life, maybe that’s true for some, but not for all. I think you can have many great loves, but only one true love. I didn’t use to think this, I was sure my first great love would be the only one I ever had. He was everything, handsome, funny, he spoiled me, and made me feel like I was the only person in the whole world who meant anything. I guess it’s funny that at the same time he was making some other girl feel the same. I’m sure he told her how amazing she was, how the moon made her eyes glisten when he looked at them. How she made him feel like he was capable of anything, I know this because he said the same to me.
A few years ago I was in the relationship of my dreams, with a man who was perfect. He was the love of my life and we were gloriously happy. He was the one who I fully believed I was going to spend the rest of my life with. We had made a five year plan and knew what we both wanted and when we wanted it. There was nothing we couldn't get through together...
Women have been fighting for their rights for the last 200 years. In many ways, we have progressed by leaps and bounds. We can vote, own property, have a job, make our own money, go to school, and are no longer sent to a looney bin for saying no to our dads or husbands. However, when it comes to domestic abuse, there is still a long way to go before the law and society catches up to where we should be.
So this may be an unpopular opinion, and if I'm going to be honest, I didn't think this way until after I had a baby and started having to deal with a P.O.S. baby daddy. I believe that (in most cases) mothers deserve more rights/ automatic rights than the father. I know, "Woah, woah what?? What kind of bra burning, man hating, feminist bullshit is this!?"
Let's just start this off by saying I'm not one of those polygamist's that believe in marrying 5 people and living in some sort of weird cult world. This isn't Sister Wives; I believe that, like all mammals, our biology tells us to create as many children with as many people as possible in order to create more life. Mammals are made to have sex and have babies. I am not trying to say there is no other purpose to our life, I just mean on a strictly biological level that's what our bodies want to do.
