30. I've lived with someone for 13 years...
Edited on Thu Mar-25-04 01:35 PM by jus_the_facts
....and still goin'....when and if we split...there won't be the added expense of DIVORCE to deal with....MR already knows my situation...just statin' my own opinion and experience!

on edit.....besides a legal document does NOT ensure that someone won't have a foot out the door regardless....only that they'll be entitled to HALF of your belongings when it doesn't work out!
