this is david, my very first “ex husband” We learned about common law marriages when I was 18 and he was 16 1/2. We proceeded to introduce ourselves as man and wife 3 times in public, so as to be in line with state law. So, my first marriage. Obviously we are still friendly, and he is also the one who wrote the contract of reparations i posted several days ago. You guys don’t even know about this guy. He is a scholar, but not a gentleman. And smarter than you can ever hope to be.
