Common Law marriage was a convenience established for couples who did not have access to State official marriages in their rural area. It has been bastardized to join couples who have no desire to be married or so obligated. Good business for diverse attorneys. Very few States in the US continue to have Common Law statues. Probably a big reason we kicked the British out, who I believe invented the idea.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

It was definitely risky and if it weren't for the full support of my family, I wouldn't have done it. Neither of us could do it entirely on our own and we've come up with some creative ways of making enough money to pay the boat together. Without risk there is less chance for reward, right?

Be VERY careful of your funds and your labor when involved in this boat girlgoessailing. I have seen more than one relationship hit the rocks and the fellow, well, he owns the boat. It says so on the title.

The girl works hard, makes the boat "their home to sail the Caribbean" and then when the pressure is on and things are nearing completion the man gets scared (my theory) and picks a multitude of fights with worker girl. She leaves.

He settles down now that expectations and all those promises he made are gone... then he finds the Princess Babe who takes the place of his former partner.

Of course that relationship fails too -- Princess doesn't want to actually break her nails or anything like that! ...

So owner wishes for original gal. In the meantime, she's moved on. Less money but far wiser.

Be very careful. Of course one hopes this doesn't happen to you. Just be aware that statistically, you're in a precarious position. I do wish you well.

Hey Im a 24yr old, half latina, female owner of three boats...... and I have no friends. But at least now I know I'm not the only one wondering why that is!

Hang around somewhere where sailor guys hang out and you'll soon have LOTS of friends.

Not really. Many guys feel emasculated when they can't take care of their woman.

Go easy on me guys...I was being a bit sarcastic

Only the weak ones - we real men like strong women.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Real men already have strong women. Leaves you looking for young unproven whelps. (or rejects ) (or transitionals)
