Cool :-). Actually if you think about it, if you actually -live- with more then one of your partners, it could be more economically feasible then if you only had one partner.

They live out in the country on a family plot of land with 2 houses, so while they had a place to go, it meant moving themselves and their teenaged son into a 3 bedroom house already occupied by Pretty Lady's sister and her 2 teenagers. Wendigo has also been out of work for a few years, though Runic Wolf was just able to get him into his company.
Cool :-).

Definitely sounds good. I really would like to see the day that I myself have my own kids... but I definitely wouldn't want any now because of my economic situation. Well, I'm taking an accounting course and my mother has a retreat that she's working on in Mexico, so hopefully I'll be able to get that employment thing going in the not too distant future.
