Regina King encourages black women to date outside their race. This is a blast from the past (2010) but just as relevant as if spoken this afternoon. Black women are the last to date out for a number of reasons. One is a misplace loyalty to black men. One’s preference is one’s preference. But if a single woman wants marriage and family, it is only logical that she opens up her dating pools to include all races of men thereby increasing her chances of finding a good friend, husband and father — of course after extreme vetting him to determine his worthiness. After all we are talking about a life partner and possible father to your future children. Although she faced some backlash for her opinion, what Regina Kings says here is on point.

Paul and Kara Scoville have done just that.

For a long time, online dating carried a stigma which made many people embarrassed to say they met their significant other online. Have a swipe through Tinder profiles and you will see many people suggesting, “We’ll say we met at the movies” – anywhere else but on Tinder, POF, Facebook, Twitter, or any of the other places people have begun relationships online.
Last year, I made one of the most difficult decisions of my life. I decided to get married—again. I can understand if people roll their eyes at this, but if you’ve never been divorced, then you may not ever be able to understand.

In the early 20th century, Punjabi men came to the area, by way of Canada, to plant fruit trees, hoping to make their fortune in peaches and plums.

In light of a recent post, I wanted to share a refreshing story of Monica L. This beautiful, scholarly sister would not let negative messages from anyone or church affect her love, happiness and future. However Monica fully credits God for allowing her and her husband’s paths to cross. I too feel meting my husband was a result of Divine Intervention. Similarly, there were no negative messages from “the black church” that affected me or any decisions I made regarding who I could, should or would marry. Right before meeting my husband, I liked a white so called Christian who was a DBR. He really was damaged beyond repair.
