Thank you, David I do recommend Ave Maria Catholic Singles - they have an extensive registration questionnaire so you know much more about a person right away. My husband and I also met and married through that web site.They do charge 0 now for a lifetime membership but in my opinion it’s worth it. It is very orthodox and faithful to the magesterium. My husband and I have been married for over 3 years and have two kids so far!
