Should you marry for love or security? Find out why Tiny says for security inside.
While included as a visitor on spouse T.I’s. ExpediTIously podcast this week to discuss the present connections, Tameka “Tiny” Harris discussed what she was educated about marriage and what she was advised is the most significant motivation to stroll down the walkway.
The 44-year-old Xscape artist grew up with her married parents, an interracial couple, and when she was young, she felt individuals got hitched “because they were in love”.
“I think it was more so about love back in the day because they had a lot of things to fight against,” she said. “If we’re speaking about my mother and my father, they were fighting against racial issues. In the ’60s, they had difficulties. He was getting locked up because he’s riding with a white woman and so on and so on. But I think it’s changed a little bit now.”
Both concur that as time changed and outward fights reduced (not stopped obviously), needs when saying “I do” changed. Tameka said she didn’t understand this until she was told as an adolescent that adoration isn’t the most significant thing in a marriage.
“I’m going to tell you, I’ll never forget that when I was about 15, 16 years old, Aunt Joyce, Kandi’s momma, told me do not marry for love. Marry for security,” she said. “I didn’t understand that at the time.”
T.I. cut her off to utilize her experience as a springboard to begin yelling about how ladies are being “prepared and molded” from adolescence to search for mates who could give them a specific way of life. At the point when he approached how that worked out for his better half, she said she was honored to have the option to have both love and security in their marriage. In light of that, she said she doesn’t have the foggiest idea what it resembles to be seeing someone for affection.
