As always John – you hit the nail right on the head! My partner Cruz and I have been together a little over 14 years and our relationship is based solely on love, respect, and the desire for both of us to be successful at whatever we do. He has seen the best of me and he has survived the worst of me in the throes of alcoholism and addiction to cocaine and yet he is still by my side!! I will also tell you that as with heterosexual marriages sex becomes the least important item in our marriage!! JUST SAYING!! Thanks for the great post as always!!
