The Road to Mrs. – Why I Chose Couple’s Therapy

Contrary to popular belief, many Black couples choose counseling before they say "I Do".

When Shawn and I decided to take our relationship to the next level I had one condition to marriage and that was pre-marital counseling. There was no doubt in my mind that I loved this man and wanted to be his wife. But I don’t care how many sappy love songs you play, it is not true that “Love Is All We Need”.  In a successful relationship you also need patience, communication and understanding. He and I are both of a certain age (in my Wendy Williams voice) and along with age comes being settled in your ways and slow to compromise, which can be the death of any relationship. [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs. – Confessions of a Single Mom Saying “I Do”

Triple B's resident bride-to-be Jene and her teenage daughter, Tylesha

Being a bride who is also a single parent to a teenager has its own unique challenges. My daughter Tylesha has been one of the biggest hurdles in my relationship. There was a time I was unsure if Shawn and I would survive Hurricane Tylesha. I was very young when I had Ty, so we basically grew up together. My Stinkey (my affectionate nickname for Ty – don’t judge me, LOL) was my shadow. We did everything together: vacations, restaurants, shows. You name it, we did it. While I did date, she was never privy to that, as far as she was concerned it was always “Mommy and Me” time. [Read more...]

You Oughta Know – Song Bouquet (PLUS Exciting GIVEAWAY)

Song Bouquet offers couples a change to have a selection written just for them!

Confession: My very first “boyfriend” wrote all of the lyrics of A Teenage Love by Slick Rick on loose leaf paper and slipped it to me after school. I saved the papers for months and cherished them like my beloved Cabbage Patch Kids. Even I recognized waaaay back  then that this gesture took a lot of effort. (Remember, this was before the days of simply turning to Google to retrieve the lyrics of a song.)

Fast forward to 2012. A talented group of folks has taken this concept up a few notches (okay, more than a few) to bring us Song Bouquet. This innovative company writes personalized love songs for anyone looking to express their feelings in a bespoke way. [Read more...]
