Meet The Black Men: Jason Gilleylen

Ask A Black Man

Episode: Marriage

Occupation: Physician

IG: @theculinaryque

Relationship Status: I know exactly with whom I want to spend the rest of my life…

Children: …or nah

My definition of a man: A guy who lives his creed and handles his business.

Marriage is… one of the highest displays of friendship, which is essential to life.

Divorce is… the culmination of misunderstanding and poor preparation.

The one thing I know to be true about women: They are as loyal as they have reason to be.

Three things every relationship should have are openness, laughter, and honesty.

My job as a boyfriend/husband is to support my partner in all endeavors, be encouraging at every opportunity, and be the reason she smiles everyday.

Any woman I’m involved with must: Have an amazing sense of humor, have a motherly instinct, and be willing to tell me exactly what she needs at times since I’m not a mind reader

Sext/Text/Call? Do them all. Variety is the spice of life. I do hate talking on the phone though…

I want my legacy to be… smiles, enlightenment, and laughter. People who are genuinely smiling or laughing or feel enlightened are genuinely happy. However I can accomplish this, be it saving a life or offering advice or telling a timely joke, this is what I want to be remembered for. Life is about stories, and I hope my life is a happy story for all who meet me.
