Hello Carla,

Do you remember being abused?

Have you ever been in therapy?

What is your prince charming like in your fantasies?

What have been some of the biggest problems in your past relationships?

What have been the reasons for your divorces and break-ups?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Yes to the first two questions, but not therapy for abuse. Like husband no 3. I have seizures and I just could not remember being married. After a few seizures I did not remember them. The last marriage last 20 years, but I could not afford his medicine and he needed help. so we devorsed.

I have gained 170 pounds, and I run from any men. No. 3 is the only one I do not know what happened to. The rest went on with their lives. and remarried.
