This year Ebony magazine’s annual Hottest Black Couples issue will feature three couples on three separate covers. Meagan Good and her entertainment executive/preacher husband, DeVon Franklin; Bishop T.D. Jakes and wife Serita; and rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny Harris.
Meagan tells the magazine about her relationship: “One of the reasons I think God put us together is that we see the world very much alike, and where we see it differently, we complement each other.” She adds that she does special things for DeVon, “What do I do for him that’s romantic? I try to surprise him whenever he comes to town. I wear nice things…Wink!”
Bishop Jakes had this to say about making a marriage work: “Marriage requires work and expecting the unexpected. Don’t let other people design a marriage you can’t live with. Keep other people out your business. Every marriage is different.”
T.I. talks about his decision to make a commitment to his wife and how it impacted their relationship: “Once I made my mind up that I was going to be committed to this relationship, I started being married then and there. Since I’ve been married, it’s the same relationship, we’re the same people. We treat each other the same way, and we’re just as happy now as we were before.”
The issue, which features letters written by the three men to their women, is on newsstands January 4th.
