…Because you decided to; because your parents did; because you have too much to lose; because it’s “cheaper to keep her/him”; because of the kids; because you’d feel guilty if you didn’t; because you made a vow; promised God; don’t want to be alone; need someone to take care of you or to take care of; it’s hard out there for a single person; AIDS. . .

Looking forward to hearing your responses.
