What do I think of the Law of Love since I left the Family of Love? Like Achieck I'm married to an exmember. My wife & I have both have enough of being swapped around & ending up with STDs & heartaches so when we got married years ago we promised to be faithful to each other & we have been ever since. And now that we have small kids why would we want to do anything stupid for momentary fun that would break up our family?

Free sex is not just part of the Family its part of society around us too. I can name acquaintences all around us who just couldn't resist having flings on the side & now they're paying the price of marriages that are hell, broken marriages etc. You don't have to be a 'puritanical Christian' to realize that in a world full of VD & parentless kids that monogamy works best.

I'm not saying marriage is heaven on earth but I think ours works because we're committed to it & put in the time & the concern for each other. We don't throw in the towell when maybe a lot of other people would. And it's paid off in our case. Despite a rugged road at times my wife & I are very deeply in love with each other.
