I am what you would call "old school" when it comes to marriage. I am one who believes that when you commit to someone, you commit for life. That's the way it used to be. Nowadays, people are quick to get hitched and even quicker to throw in the towel. My generation is filled with empty promises and divorcees.
My father had high hopes for me when I was young. I was ambitious and smart, I did well in high school, I had money saved up, paid my bills on time, and I didn't have a care in the world because everything was, in his eyes, going my way.
