I'm not sure what this says about me as a person, but I don't normally respond well when I'm told I can't do something. That's why I'm a little concerned about a list I've found of foods you're not allowed to eat in Illinois. The "don't list" is long and I'm afraid I'll be tempted to rebel.
How happy are you in your relationship? I don't mean to intrude, but the reason I ask is if you're common law married, there's something you need to know if you're thinking about moving to Illinois. There's only one (rather awkward) reason to do it.
