Angie, never jeopardize your family for a man. I'm not saying finding your true love is a small thing. It isn't. But it's not all it's cracked up to be. I thought I'd found mine and got married. He cheated on me big time and beat me up when I confronted him about it. When I left him, I went back to the family that stood by me through everything.
This Reggie sounds like a good guy. Although, my mother, the lovely Lila Hamilton Alvarez, once advised me to never marry a musician. I don't know what that has to do with anything, but I throw it out there.
Wait a minute. Lila believes what separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom is our ability to accessorize. She also thinks I should wear black instead of all my bright colors. It's sooo not happening. And don't get me started on the memory of her gutting fish in her beaded Halston when I was a kid; I'm still trying to get over that one. I don't care if she was wearing an apron, the rest of the girl scout troup thought it was weird.
So never mind. You like this Reggie dude? you go for it.
