Why I Never Got Married

I was thinking this morning that this coming Tuesday my son Ryan is turning 20 years old, but that is not what this blog is about. The subject here is why I have never been married. It's not that the subject has never come up, it's just something that has never interested me. Even when my son was born, I knew in my heart that I would be raising my boy myself and I have Autism and all. My parents were not the problem, if they were still here on earth they would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary this month. Now as for my 3 brothers, they're a different story. Between the 3 of them they have racked up 9 marriages! I know!! Anyway, I have carried my maiden name and will continue to for the rest of my life. Even my Ryan carries my last name, not the paternal sides name, why should he, he doesn't even know him. Anyway, there you are, I'm a Miss or M
Ryan & Barbara Butler
s. as I'm called, so I just have to go with the flow as they say.
