Marriage Matters Monday: When Does He Meet the Kids?

On Friday, May 5, I had the pleasure of appearing on The Tom Joyner Morning Show as a special guest of Jacque Reid’s In Her Hour segment. (WOO HOO!)

This lively exchange covered how men in relationships balance their romantic partners along with their mothers, daughters, ex-wives and ex-girlfriends, “work wives”, sisters + more. We actually ran out of time because there was so much to discuss!

The union of two people, two independent individuals with their own set of values, morals, and ideas about finances, marriage, and children, can lead to an extremely successful union or one that is destined to fail — sometimes very early on. Understanding that a marriage continues beyond the wedding day, we knew early on that we would seek premarital counseling.

By the time we will be married, we will have lived in the same house for 23 months. [Read more…]

*Flashback* Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – I Got Your Back

cousin mars on black bridal bliss

I think we have all heard the term “I Got Your Back.” I know it isn’t grammatically correct, but let’s ignore that for now.

If you’re anything like me, you have many stories of how you’ve proven this mantra. Perhaps even better stories regarding how it was proven to you by others. I’d share a few, but the statute of limitations in New York and the District of Columbia are a bit fuzzy in some cases. [Read more…]
