Why do I tell you this? Because they have been an example of what a healthy, loving, spiritual relationship is supposed to be. Although I was raised by a single parent, I had the benefit of seeing my great-grandfather carry himself as a respectable Black man. My great-grandmother is the poster child for sweet old ladies. Over the years, I have definitely had some messed up relationships, but over the last 4 years, I've been able to grow and I guess I grew ok, because God sent me a man who reminds me so much of my Great-grandfather. We haven't been married long, but I've known he was the one for quite some time.
NOW ONTO THE NOT-MUSHY STUFF !!!
I am NOT an expert on relationships by any means whatsoever--I don't think anyone really is. But I do know we all seek guidance/help/advice/encouragement from time to time when it comes to this love thing. I enlisted the help of some of the leading experts on the subject (AKA my married friends) to co-write a series of posts for the blog. Every week or so, I will post a different couple at a different stage in their relationship. Some will be anonymous and others will reveal their identity.
My goal is to work on building stronger relationships be looking within our own communities. I know we can do it and I hope you'll enjoy.
Please also post questions, comments, and smart remarks for the guest bloggers to ponder as they write their virtual gold!
