Marriage Matters – Thinking Inside the Box


I found the above message on Instagram a couple weeks back and thought it was profound. So much so that I needed to share. It is easy (too easy) to get caught up in the rings, the gown, the flowers, the reception music, and the 18,000 other things that even the most focused engaged couple can forget the true point of it all.

Read. Digest. Comment. (Even if you disagree.)

One of the most anticipated weddings of the year finally happened — actress Gabrielle Union and basketball all-star Dwyane Wade got hitched on Saturday, August 30. The dynamic duo wed in their home city of Miami at the Chateau Artisan castle in a black-and-white themed affair. The bride’s BFF Essence Atkins served as the couple’s officiant. The newlyweds were adamant about not having a traditional wedding party, however, celeb buddies such as Carmelo and LaLa Anthony, Chris and Jada Paul and Kevin Hart were in attendance.

Marriage Matters Monday – The Family Crews Exclusive Interview

Pucker Up! - Rebecca + Terry Crews at the 20th Wedding Vow Renewal

We all remember BET’s hit reality show The Family Crews. Terry and Rebecca Crews welcomed us in their L.A. home, making us all feel like family. But what happened when the cameras stopped rolling? Triple B chatted with Mrs. Rebecca Crews about getting and staying married. Rebecca, who is refreshingly down to Earth, is clear that her husband did not become the man that he is overnight but in practicing commitment, compassion, and communication they held on. Terry and Rebecca are the proud parents of five children and celebrated 25 years of marriage on July 29, 2014. This is their story… [Read more...]

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s Save the Date Video is Adorbs (Seriously.)

The countdown is officially on for Gabby + Wade's August 30 nuptials in MIA!

Don’t believe the headline? Just watch for yourself below. Oh and word on the street is that the couple, who has had their relationship under quite a bit of scrutiny since getting engaged, also mailed out traditional paper save-the-dates with a heart motif back in May. Smart to have both just in case some folks — i.e. Nana and ‘em — aren’t feeling the digital correspondence for such an important day. [Read more...]

Love and Legacy: Remembering Ruby Dee + Ossie Davis

Loving + Living: A Young Ossie + Ruby

Like most of you, I was saddened to learn Ruby Dee passed away yesterday (June 11, 2014). Her work as an actress, philanthropist and civil rights activist made her a bona fide cultural icon. But her marriage to fellow actor Ossie Davis was equally as memorable as her acting career. In fact, the names Ossie and Ruby just roll off of our tongues like peanut butter and jelly. More Harlem than Hollywood, they were one of those couples in the public eye who genuinely seemed to like each other — it was refreshing and welcoming. Mr. TK (my hubby rocks!) reminded me, because I honestly had forgotten I even penned the post, about this of this blog piece I wrote in 2008 about Mrs. Ruby Dee. I smiled while reading it and I think you might, too. Here’s a snippet: [Read more...]
