    I think the problem with "Porn" both soft and hard is that it gives the reader an unreal immage of life or sexual activity.

    It is my feeling that many of the LDS Romance novels give the readers "older single LDS women" an unreal image of their marriage prospects.

    It is the same with the Hallmark Channel on Cable. The plots are always the same or slightly different.

    30 plus female, never married,or divorced with children meets 30 plus male never married (always with a professional occupation, Never a trade like Carpenter or Bricklayer or Plumber) He falls in love with her and her children and they live together in bliss.

    In my opinion reality is some what different. First of all most 30 plus never been married professional people do not marry someone their own age. They tend to marry some one younger.

    Some people tend to view such ladies as having "baggage".

    Secondly there are conflicts betweens step parents and step children. In the movies and novels you never hear the words "You are not my real dad."

    Go ahead have at me ladies. PS I have been married for 46 years to same woman.
