My name is Laura & i'm one of your forum Rockstars. If you have any questions please ask and if I don't have the answer i'll do all I can to find out for you! I live in S.E. Michigan. Rob proposed on 11/27/17 after 7 months together. I know it sounds fast but we've known each other for nearly 35 years. We dated when I was 15 and he was 20. He went off to the navy and we went our separate ways each marrying and divorcing. We would run into each other once in awhile and found each other again on Facebook. I'm so happy to me marrying a man who knows who I am and where I came from.
