IMO, anyone can be in love with their person of choice...The important part of any relationship is to respect this person for who and what they are...Not for what they were...Take care...

Yes, absolutely. I am, and while her ordeal was long, long ago...20 years before we met...it's still a very painful thing to live with the knowledge that she was viewed by others, treated, and treated herself, so indifferently. While we've had high and low points over our five year relationship (and soon to be married), the consistent strength has been in taking our pain and heartache to God and reliance on the promise of forgiveness and redemption. We have both grown tremendously as a result of having to face that past, and my own. Regardless of which person in the relationship you are...the formerly prostituted person or not...two films may help bring things to the surface that you're both feeling but don't know how to express. One is called "The Secret Life of Words", and the other is "Woman, Thou Art Loosed!". One of the strongest messages in either is understanding forgiveness and the power of "now" over "then" once you accept what has happened. Then you seek to turn the pain into a foundation for the strength of committment to 'right the wrong' while seeking and accepting forgiveness and grace. God bless you and may you both have a long, happy life.
