    Alexander Graham Bell and Mabel Gardiner Hubbard’s Love Story in Photos

    You showed one example, but by specifically noted hearing status you make it a factor. I fail to see how you could know the outcome of hearing and deaf marriages from well over 100 years ago. It's not like they can't still communicate. I think it's exemplary when couples stay close for so long...

    Alexander Graham Bell and Mabel Gardiner Hubbard’s Love Story in Photos

    Some people can be very devoted to each other, even into old age. I don't see how hearing status should factor into that love. What if one was black and one was white? One was blind, the other seeing? Why would that change how they feel for each other?

    I have several questions for the deaf community?

    If you're doing this for a school project, I understand you may have a deadline. But if you're doing this as just a general interest for yourself, take your time. The approach of "I want to know everything right away" puts people off.

    Annoying ignorant hearing people stories

    ^^^ That's like sticking a band-aid on every ailment. Got a headache? Here's a band-aid. Allergies or a cold? Have a band-aid. These people need to stop thinking that every special need requires a wheel chair.

    Stick with your own kind? or Mix it up!

    I'm drawn to a certain personality type; the intelligent goofball. The outer package matters a bit, he needs to at least take care of himself. Aside from that, tall/short, heavy/thin, bald/hairy - doesn't matter much. There are other personality traits that are musts for me as well... but once I...
