When Lamar and I met, I had two kids. After he proposed, we had a conversation where I told him exactly what I was looking for in a husband. I told him I needed a partner who would share in all things family-related: from taking care of the kids to doing housework. I wasn't interested in being married to a person who "helped out" from time to time. Luckily, Lamar did not take his ring and run for the hills from this ready-made family he was about to join. Instead, he took on the challenge and became the best husband, father, and, yes, partner that I could ask for.
