My name is Benjamin Cardenas; I go by Ben. I am a happily married man, I have been with my husband for three years and been married for one year. We have two beautiful daughters, Natalie 12 and Emma 9. They are my biological daughters, and they are my pride and joy. My family is my number one motivator for everything that I do in life. I am a risk-taker, and I am not afraid of a challenge. I believe that life is full of lessons to be learned after all that's how we become stronger and more knowledgeable. I love to spend as much time with my family, I give my daughters my undivided attention and like to keep them active. Their biological mother and I share joint custody. She and I have a dynamic and healthy parenting relationship.
