Last week we talked about the reality of wife guilt for many women who feel like they can’t adequately balance their responsibilities inside and outside of the home. But for singer Fantasia, it’s a no-brainer: She puts her relationship with her husband first.
She made this clear while sharing her mixology skills on Instagram, showing off the drinks she made for herself and husband Kendall Taylor:
“I go harder as a Wife than I do on stage,” she said. “Not only will I cook a perfect meal for the King, but my mix drink game is becoming respectable as well! #Marriage #loyaltyloyaltyloyalty”
It makes sense that she would put her all into this relationship. After all, as she told us last summer, she fasted seven months before God sent her Taylor. The pair have been married since 2015.
“I will say that when I started fasting, it didn’t start off with me saying I was ready for a relationship or ready to get married,” she said. “I just knew that I needed to let go of a lot of things. And so, I married myself and I focused on me and how to love myself again. How to let go of all of the past hurt. Not just relationships but business, family, friends — I wanted to let go of that. I was asking God to send me a certain kind of man when He was ready, in his timing. For so long, everything I did was all me rushing into things…So I asked God when he was ready to send me a strong man, a praying man and a man who was going to build me up because I was a broken woman. After coming off of After Midnight, I met my husband who was fasting at the same time. So for me, I was just like, ‘Wow! Patience.'”
