My name is Ilex Bien-Aime, I am originally from Freeport, Bahamas but was raised in Ft.Lauderdale, FL. I currently reside in Washington, D.C. with my wife of two years. I enjoy writing and having open dialogue about marriage and relationships. Often times the male perspective goes unheard and this is why I write. Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus but now we have to coexist on Earth together!
