10 Black Men Discuss What Marriage Means To Them

Life’s like a game of Spades – we all do the best we can with the cards we’re dealt, and none of us can succeed without  the right partner. ‘Partnership’ takes on many forms. To me, marriage, the public recognition and declaration of two imperfect yet complete individuals’ love and commitment to one another is the ultimate. I emphasize ‘imperfect yet complete’ because the partnership, in of itself, is comprised of two separate and beautifully imperfect people – each with their own distinct personalities, strengths, weaknesses, traumas and transgressions They are forming a union before the Lord in which they mutually agree to create an environment where the purest form of intimacy can take place; a space where you can truly be all of yourself all of the time. It’s almost poetic how something so open and vulnerable leads to one of the greatest signs of strength; love. The idea of building such a genuine, uninhibited love and sharing it unselfishly with the world around us;it ain’t for everyone, but I don’t imagine it gets much better.“
