We never thought of doing anything like this but I will give it a chance. My partner (Janet Alicea) and myself have been together for the last 10 Years. We never though that the day would come of having same sex marriage. We have been engaged for the last 6 Years and my partners dream has been to get marry since she was a little girl with her soulmate. We met 15 years ago and nver though of having a relationship at least in her eyes but I loved her for 15 years of my life but didnt tell her to after 5 years of our friendship. I fell in love with her since the first day I met her and it was just true love and I met my soulmate and my true love. I have two girls from a previous marraiage and she has help me raised them as her own. My older daughter is graduating next year and shes going to be going to college and that itself is going to be expensive and we think about either our wedding or her tution and of course as parents we want our kids well being. So just a week ago we booked a room in Monroe NY in this Mansion that has been coverted into a hotel. The moment we went in she said this is the place I want our wedding here and I was happy but at the same time I was like babe we can not offer this place and she just answered me we are getting marry next year (August 23,2014) I was so happy to hear that but we don't have the funds and shes the only person working at home since I was layed off from my job close to 2 years ago and I really dont want to put all the wieght on her. I currently dog sit from home and will help pay with what ever extra money I make. So we calculated the amount for the wedding venue and it will cost is over $10,000. Our love is real and so genuine all our family and friends say we are truly soulmate and we truly feel it in our heart. She doen't even know that am trying to raise any money I want to surprise her and take off the weight from her shoulder and help her make her dream come true. With all this said also my partner has been struggling with lupus since she was thriteen years old. She has tuff days and it is extermly hard for her to get up from bed but there is one thing I can say she is one of the strongest people I know and this is the reason why I ask for your help in order to make her dream come true. Thanks to all of you that read our love story !!!
