I have to thank one of my sister friends (Brenda R. lived in Sydney with her Aussie hubby) for her love of royal watching and passing on this recent info to me that I just had to blog about and pass on to you. Tanja Doky is in a coveted position. Some may think it is a glorified maid, but A Lady in Waiting is a position of considerable wealth and prestige and she is the only bw doing it on that grand scale. On top of that, she is a swirler with children who have the best that life can offer them.
Sweden-based Ghanaian international model, Mirash Davis recently followed her 2008 engagement to Fredrik Westlund with a dream wedding full of love, glamour, horse and carriage and more. In the presence of family and friends (including Mirash’s mum, Evelyn Adzimah and the couple’s adorable son, Oscar), Mirash and Fredrik said their vows at the church and right after the ceremony, they were whisked on a horse and carriage to in the groom’s parent’s garden for dinner.
When I was reached out to and asked to discuss my thoughts, feelings or views on my marriage I had a range of emotions. I am a black woman married to a white man. That is what the world sees at any rate. What I feel is a woman married to a man raising a family like any other couple black, white or otherwise. So, to give others perspective I chose to answer the question “what is it like to be in a biracial relationship?”
Not everyone who gets married spends her time dreaming of just the right dress or where her honeymoon will be.

I am thrilled to see so many black women exercising their God-given choices to expand their dating pools. Because I am a relationship coach, I have spoken to hundreds of women about interracial marriage. Women write to me from all over the country and world for help and I am happy to oblige when and if I can in the way of coaching. Some of these women have never had an issue dating or marrying out. Some have had issues and found it was not for them. But some had never even considered it and had been approached by non black men and found themselves wanting to go for it. Some women were afraid of what their families and friends would think and wanted to explore options.
