Before you get married..

Even though my friend Tim is engaged to be married, his band of brothers wasted no time grilling him about being truly ready. Apparently, a man is not truly ready for marriage unless he has done certain things, experienced certain people, and is clear about his mate selection.

When you have been single a long time, you probably don’t feel a lot of pressure to get things out of your system. I just have to ask, do we truly get things out of our system?

If you ever ask a married couple if there was anything they wish they had done before jumping the broom, what do you suppose they would say?

Do you think there are a few things you should do before you get married? If so, what about marriage impedes your freedom to do it?

SCool, I totally understand. As I was watching it, I had the same thoughts I did while watching “12 Years…”, this has happened/is still happening to women/people.

whether Tyler stayed true to Shange’s work

I like the fact that he kept the original poetry from the play in the movie..

. We did the same with Sparkle

I didn’t do that…I had no interest in seeing the new one.(don’t know why, just didn’t) But I’ll watch the original all day,though.

MsAtl, I understand you wanting to wait for RedBox. I think I would’ve enjoyed it a little better if I’d watched it at home…but I still won’t take anything from experiencing it in the theater.

Sassy- I liked the re-make of Sparkle (Jordin Sparks’ singing was great) but the original was grittier.

I actually read a magazine article about a girl who was kidnapped from her home (I can’t remember which country in Africa) smuggled through Egypt and Sudan and then finally to England where she was forced into being a domestic servant. She said she was treated so badly but finally when she was running errands for the wife she ran into another person from her country and just hoped they believed her and they took her to the authorities. The family denied they even knew her of course I can’t forget. But it was a good article. I read another one about a girl from Egypt. Her family sold her and then they smuggled her here. The sad part is she is like 8 or 9 years old working in the home as a domestic servant and they keep her in the basement.

“Was wifey feeling down and depressed afterwards or was it you?……” Both….The film had her feeling down which caused her not to be in the mood to give me some azz………that made me depressed.

Oh Good Afternoon folks!

Knowing yourself as a person is super important before you get married. I like what Button stated earlier that was some profound knowledge. Marriage is not about you…Button did someone hit you on the head this morning? hehehehehehe!

YSIC, I’ve seen several stories on CNN about that and it is indeed sad. Those young girls are lost and being preyed upon in the most sadistic ways…it’s disheartening.

The sad part is she is like 8 or 9 years old working in the home as a domestic servant and they keep her in the basement.

True. What I can’t imagine is if they thought they were going to a better situation(alot of them are lied to on the premise of better living)…what kind of situation were they leaving?

For the ones who are kidnapped, I couldn’t even imagine. Wanting to go home and you can’t…

Brad Pitt’s character said, “There’s no way a person could do that(whip another person/be an overseer)and not be affected themselves”..

Will Silky Smooth reappear and ask for Celisea hand in marriage before she accepts the proposal from her imaginary boo?

Will Leggs hit the number and hit the floor again this month?

Will YSIC give 2C a chance to show his cobweb removing skills?

Tune in same blog channel, same blog website!

Actually Sassy quite the opposite, there is a prevailing mentality among folks who think they are better other folks and consider them less than…That is why we still have slavery in the modern world…

Folks are just plain evil…..

Hi larious….you wish. Unbelievable that you’re the only one successfully booed, huh? All that traffic you cause by sniffing after folks is a smoke screen. Once again, just hard to believe woman ain’t bottom feeding like you so believe. Get outta your own head. Less folks are slumming than you believe.

Toodles….night night
