After 9 years of marriage, my husband left me and the kids. He was dating a younger lady that live close to his office. I did all I could to make him come back home, he refused! A month later, he drove down to the house, walked up to me and told me he wanted a divorce.. I tried to talk with him, but he wouldn't give me a listening ear.. I felt like my life was about to end, and was falling apart.

I talked with his family and friends, if they could help me advice him. They did all they could to help, but my husband wouldn't listen them either. He stopped picking our phone calls and relocated to an unknown location so that non of us will be able to reach him. I was very confused and almost felt like giving up.

One faithful morning, as I was browsing the internet. Something came to my mind, I had this feeling that I should just check if I can get a good spell caster to help me solve this problem.. As I was searching for a real and genuine spell caster online, I came across series of testimonies about this particular spell caster called Dr. Ishawuru. Different people were sharing their various testimonies on how this man can bring ex lover back, restore womb, stop divorce and so on. This caught my attention. Though I was skeptical about it. I had to give it a try to see how true it is.. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Three days later, my husband came back home and apologized for all the wrong things he did to me and the kids. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. For those of you out here, who need the services of a genuine spell caster. Here's his contact: ishawuruspell@gmail.com.. Contact him today!

Por Daniel Hensel-Leesson.
En un momento en que se debilitan instituciones y estructuras que posibilitaron mejoras en la vida de muchas personas a nivel mundial, es importante resaltar algunos aspectos de la vida en comunidad.
Como seres inteligentes, debemos proveer tanto al bien comun, como a las posibilidades de felicidad compartida que devienen de este.
En ello, recordamos la obra necesaria a la inteligencia social colectiva, aplicada a la solidaridad masiva.
Dado que la generacion de civilizacion, se realiza en forma constante y fluida, de la misma manera debe efectuarse la emision y construccion del codigo solidario inteligente.
El aporte de todos y cada uno de nosotros, es y sera no solo necesario, sino indispensable.
Para ello debemos autoeducarnos en la funcion de construccion solidaria.
El aporte en red genera ideas, circunstancias y posibilidades multiplicantes, a nivel regional, nacional y planetario. Muchas gracias.

COMO MEJORAR NUESTRAS VIDAS (1) Muchos de nosotros somos activos pensadores y o protagonistas de la solidaridad social.
Esto implica que parte de nuestros esfuerzos estan orientados al mejoramiento de la vida en comunidad.
Paralelamente, a veces somos nosotros mismos los que necesitamos algun tipo de soporte o apoyo.
Cuando se trabaja, y a la vez se trabaja tambien por otros, se reciben grandes satisfacciones y grandes desgastes.
A veces, para poder continuar mas alla de tal desgaste, podemos recurrir a algunos elementos que poseemos en nuestro interior.
Uno de estos elementos es recordar que existen eventos y situaciones, que en realidad no controlamos.
Otro elemento es evaluar la posibilidad de discernir con cuales cuestiones de vida continuar y con cuales no hacerlo.
Esto esta relacionado con darnos permiso para hacer sintesis, en funcion de una vida mas feliz.
Tambien debemos observar la importancia que tiene todo aquello que nos aporta felicidad en la vida cotidiana, para no posponerlo ni dejarlo de lado, ya que el ser humano necesita felicidad para poder vivir.
Un poco de felicidad en el dia a dia, mejora notablemente la calidad de nuestras vidas.
A su vez, esto se halla poderosamente entreligado al poder regenerador y revitalizante de la distraccion.
La verdadera distraccion positiva, esta asociada a la calidad de tal distraccion.
A la larga, distracciones mediocres, generan un efecto opuesto.
Elegir distracciones que nos resulten positivas, conlleva una decision del dia a dia, investigando sus posibilidades creativas y participativas.
Ello nos lleva a preguntarnos y repreguntarnos: 多que parte de mi he dejado de lado..? 多Que parte de mi, me gustaria desarrollar..?
De esta manera, determinadas preguntas, iran respondiendose por si mismas.

After egalitarian marriage
Historical: For the first time ever, Argentina’s national population census will register lgtb couples and families and trans population.

For the first time in Argentinean history, the national population census will register lgtb homes and transgender population.
Activists from the sexual diversity movement met yesterday, July 29th, with the General Director of the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC, by its Spanish abbreviation), Lic. Ana Edwin. During the meeting, the Institute informed its decision to register lesbian, gay and trans’ homes in the next population census, which will take place on October 27th, Wednesday. This is an unprecedented decision in Argentina’s censuses history and will allow for the registration of same sex couples whether they are legally married or not.

The meeting included several INDEC staff members, such as the Chief of the Census Operative, the Press Campaign responsible and the Training Area Director, among others. Gabriela Bacin from Lesmadres and Martín Canevaro from 100% Diversity and Rights also took part of the meeting, among activists from other GLTB organizations.

Before this decision, when the family member registered as family head had a same sex person as his/her partner, the electronic system that does the data processing considered that fact as “an inconsistency”, a mistake, and automatically changed the sex of that person, thus converting same sex couples in heterosexual couples in the records. This parameter was changed and from now on the same sex couples data will we be recorded in the final processing of the census, independently of these people being legally married or not.

Gabriela Bacin, from Lesmadres, an organization of lesbian mothers who decided to have their children in co-maternity, said: “Until now, there are no social diagnoses and social investigations about our families are still scarce. This statistical invisibility does exclude us from public policies, marking a gap of social, economical and political inequity for wide sectors of the population”.

Florencia Gemetro, from the same organization, added: “These changes constitute a big step forward in the visibility and recognition of GLTB families, allowing the possibility of formulating and adapting more diverse and inclusive pubic policies with the aim of improving life conditions for everyone”.

Martín Canevaro, President of 100% Diversity and Rights, considered that from this census on “we will be able to know how many of us are living in couples and in what conditions we live”. He added that “There is a compromise to apply, in a second stage, more accurate statistical instruments specifically designed for our collectives”. He informed they are working with INDEC on this issue: “We will take part in the training of the people who will carry out the census records, so they can incorporate a sexual diversity perspective and, at the same time, we will rise the GLTB community consciousness about the importance of being visible in the census, with complete freedom and security, in order for our families to be taken into account”.
Finally, trans activist Alba Rueda, also from 100% Diversity and Rights, affirmed that “the most important result of this meeting was the compromise to generate parameters that allow the recognition of the high social vulnerability in which transvestite, transsexual and transgender population lives”. This will be the very first time when official data about the situation of trans people in Argentina will be collected, especially regarding their economically productive activities. “We know that, unfortunately, there is a high percentage of the trans population living in state of prostitution; we hope that kind of information will be used to generate social and employment policies”, she said.

Aníbal (user currently living in ARGENTINA) posted for readers on 24/07/2010 tagged with lgbt families +10
Hi, I am 66 years old and my partner is 36. We have had this relationship for 6 years now and we love each other deeply and are very happy. It was only this year, in February, that I came out of the closet in front of my two children, both married heterosexually. They accepted my sexuality and relationship naturally and reacted with a shrug and a warm hug. Our relationship father-son/daughter has improved greatly since. The only thing I regret regarding my coming out is not having done so much, much earlier. I feel so free since I told my children "I´m gay"

Hola i'm from a small town in Georia, USA. The gay scene is looked down upon, so its hard to open about it. I recently took a trip to Buenos Aires Argentina and would absolutely say it was a great place to be open about your sexuality. I had a really good experience there with this group called The OUT and About Pub crawl. They were a pub crawl just catered to the gay community. The staff was amazing and the bars and clubs we went to were awesome. I have never felt so comfortable walking around the streets of Buenos Aires with a bunch of others just like me. Good times. check them out at www.OutAndAboutPubCrawl.com
