Hi, I'm Mark

Well, hello there!

I'm Mark, 6ft ,40 something happily married man - to the inimitable @MartikaDuponte1 - with 6 daughters...yes...SIX! Miya, Jasmin, Suzanne, Samantha, Amidala and Rhianna. 5 with my wife, 1 from another relationship.

I have a collective of wonderful mother-in-laws - Sammy Jo and Karen - and I have a younger sister, Patricia.

I'm a lawyer, by trade, having grown into a partnership for many years before, 5 years ago starting my own partnership. Work life is fun and varied.

Outside of work, I love to run and cycle. Mostly running, to be fair.

I'm not much of a drinker - the occasional glass of wine - and a long-time vegetarian.

I am, yes, one of those old Experience Project people. It's been quite the long time since then and now.

So, nice to meet you all !

@MsSwann Not for me, Ms. Swann. You need to be more sensitive. I'm delicate, you know.
@MarkPaul That's funny

What are the odds of like 6 straight same sex children???
MarkRichardson41-45, M
@Catzgano Girls netball team! Planning for the Olympics! Lol!
DrWatson70-79, M
@Catzgano The probability of six boys or six girls is 2*(1/2)^6 = 2/64 = 1/32. So the odds against 6 children of the same sex are 31 to 1. Not really astronomically rare.

@MarkRichardson how old are your daughters i have 7 girls
rrraksamam31-35, M
Looks like the whole family is on SW.
Now what are the odds of that happening?
MarkRichardson41-45, M
@rrraksamam You're a betting man? Not much of a better myself as I thought that I'd be having a quiet life at this stage! Lol!
rrraksamam31-35, M
@MarkRichardson The Duponte Family. Any chance I can earn that last name and join the clan?
So, like, we can all come to you for lawyerly advice, cool...
MarkRichardson41-45, M
@BrewCityArtist You know it, brother!

Interesting.

Living in the states it is difficult to understand how countries can be so different in the way that prostitution is handled. In some, it is legal, but here it is not, yet it still goes on. At some point, I suppose, a government finally decides that if it is not going to control something it might as well legalize it.

Holy cow! 6 daughters. I can't imagine. My 13 yr old daughter is a handful unto herself.
MarkRichardson41-45, M
@TexChik Ah, nice. Environmental? That's getting bigger and bigger these days. I delved into criminal law for a brief spell, many years ago when I was a baby lawyer. Not nice. Part of the defence of a 2nd degree murder trial. Quite horrific. Put me off.

Stick to the less hardcore stuff these days!

@MarkRichardson I got the specialization process going at my new bosses request as soon at I started work after the Bar results were posted . Texas is oil and gas , and I ended up marrying an oil man so I had a source of cases to work .
MarkRichardson41-45, M
@TexChik Lovely to know.

@Lilnonames No, not odd. It's our relationship. I would rather keep that separate from this, if you would be so kind. Thank you. 馃檪
