28 years, two children later, and Don finally decided to marry her. I swear black men ain't shit.

@ 8:40am - What if during the majority of their relationship , "marriage" was something that they didn't want.... "Marriage" puts that legal document in place and that's it... It doesn't take a legal document to live and be committed as though you're married... 9/10 I can assure you the only reason they decided to make it legal is to make sure things are secure in the event of the death of either of them..

Tell that to the families of DMX and Nipsey Hustle. I wonder how much of a difference that little legal document would've gone smh. Like Kevin Samuels says, women decide when they want children, and men decide when they want marriage. We all know that statistically black men aren't marriage minded. And seeing as how they had 2 kids together that tells me that she did want marriage and Don was the hold up.

When a man truly loves a woman he will rush to marry her out of fear another man may beat him to it, but when a man is not 100% into a woman he won't marry her in the hopes he will one day find what he is really looking for. Trust me, I know men. Basically, she held on to him and he gave in because he has lived and done what he wanted to do and now he is old. Honestly, if it takes 28 years for a man to honor me before God, I don't think I'd want a big wedding, it's kind of embarrassing. I knew my husband 1 month and have been married many, many years. Men marry who they want really quickly. I know a man who has been with a real pretty lady since her son was 2 years old, and the boy is in college now, and he still won't marry her. Basically, he's holding out hope to find what he really wants, and if he can't, he will always have her to fall back on. In his heart he doesn't want her but she adores him. So once he's old, he might marry her.

@10:10...well said. Now if only the women who continuously pump out oow kids, play house for more than a couple of years, and those who wait forever for him to legally dissolve his last relationship would get the message.

@10:31, I have straight up asked a male friend why he didn't marry the beautiful woman he's been with 15 years, and in a round about way he said she isn't really what he's looking for. So, she's the mean time and in between time woman. He wasn't that blunt, but that's basically how he put it. So, she let this much older man steal 15 years of her life and she's 40 now and he's almost 60. She adores him but he still lives like he has options. I don't know why she stays when she has her own.

Exactly. Black men ain't shit. Periodt.

Gosh, 28 years? If they had a child near the beginning of the relationship, that would be a damn adult! Wow, all that waiting--I agree he was not that into her. If he had, he would have done this at least 10 years ago (that would have still have been after 18 years!). Why bother now then? Marriage is work, and really changes expectations of a relationship. This marriage is not going to last long.

@10:51 just used up all her youthful years, and she couldn't explore her own options. same for cheadle's girlfriend.

however, these women do need to be accountable too. they're obviously benefiting in some way by staying with someone who is not into seriously committing to them.

The answer to the marriage is right there. Covid. He would have never married her if it wasn't for the virus.

Maybe she didn't mind not being married.

Hmmmm, I've been married twice and it's overrated. 28 years is a long time to be committed to one person and I say . . If it ain't broke, then don't fix it. Other than legally having the right to be responsible for my significant other's estate if they die, there's no reason to get married. Their kids are grown. Marriage changes people, especially men and all of a sudden they believe because you're married, they now own you. One thing is for certain, they both always appear to be really happy with one another and you can't put a price on that.

A lot of times a selfish man won't marry because he is scared you might get something. Lol. Seriously, God created marriage to protect you, not hurt you. For instance, although Cheadles woman has had some acting roles, it's nothing like his A list roles, which means he is the bread winner. If she had gotten used to living nice, but he went out one day and married a random woman at the justice of the peace, there would have been nothing she could do but accept it and move out because a wife wins every time. She ran a real risk of getting done dirty. You run a risk playing house period. Remember Gordon from Sesame Street? He lived with a woman 40 plus years and then hopped up and married another woman. He immediately stopped paying the rent and bills at the house he shared with her. At 70 she ended up on one of their kids sofas. Smh. Because they were not married she can't even draw from his S.S. or retirement pension and he had her playing molly homemaker all 40 plus years. He wanted her to stay home. In a rare decision the court said her case is soooo rare and extreme he had to pay her like 200,000 over 5 years, but that's nothing because as a wife she would have gotten half... The judge wasn't supposed to give it to her but she's so old and he promised to always take care of her and so she got that little bit but it won't last in New York and she probably has no S.S. credits of her own either. Sad.

Wow, that is crazy smdh. You'd think after Nipsey and DMX's deaths women would smarten up and make these men put a ring on it smdh. That legal paper would hold a no-good nigga accountable should he decide to wander, disrespect, or die. Don't let no dick, sweet talk, and kids fool you - when a man leaves, he's taking everything with him.

@3:37, You dumb @ss it was in all of the papers, but I forgot you can't read! Lol. Wait a minute, you must be a baby momma with no ring or a trifling dude??? Hahaaaa A hit dog will hollar and you HOWLED these posts hurt you so bad in your soul. Why else would you be so upset about the truth? No one said anything wrong. You sitting up feeling exposed and crunchy. Lol. Stop telling on yourself. Women should always protect themselves because they often give up a lot raising babies, you dufus.

@3:37, If you don't like blogs, which are other peoples opinions, get your weak and emotional butt off. No one is spitting on them, folks are warning women to be SMART. Either you are not very smart or you are a man scared your woman will get smart on you. Either way you misinterpreted everyones intent because you feel we can see your situation when we can't. Shack all you want but we have a right to inform women of tne consequences even if you are butthurt.

Anonymous said...

@2:58 so true! the legal paper will protect that woman and children. If the husband dies, she will be the head of the estate and authorized to make decisions. Congratulations to the newlyweds, but damn women do need to hold their partners accountable, especially if they do want to be married. wow, 28 years?? waiting 28 years is just an incredibly long time and now looks like an afterthought.

He probably had a cheap virtual wedding too. She should have demanded an elaborate wedding and a big ass rock...shiit.

@8:40 - This Rona virus pandemic and it's death toll is really forcing these babydaddys/ eternal boyfriends to wake up and get their house & family business in order. No more time to waste taking their woman and her future for granted.

After 28 yrs, she was going to walk with something anyway.
