Being Married Doesn


This past weekend I was in Oakland speaking on a panel discussion about love and relationships called Battle Of The Sexes. The main topic of discussion was how money influenced the way men and women date in our modern society, and because the audience was so diverse in age, the comments from the audience were extremely interesting. Now I’ve done many panel events since I began writing, and the one thing that's always very consistent is how single people speak to the crowd when they get their turn on the mic, versus how married people talk. The truth is, as ignorant as some single people can come off, there’s nothing worse than the condescending comments of married folk who believe everyone needs to follow THEIR advice, simply because they are married.  is the hub for conversation about luxury lifestyle, entertainment, and pop culture for African-Americans.
