It's Not You, It's MEn

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and Everything In Between:

I am currently watching #ItsNotYouItsMen, the newest talk show featuring great recording artist and actor Tyrese and legendary hip hop star Rev. Run talking openly and honestly about sex, love and relationships. They are giving you the perspective from a single and very married man. I love the concept of the show because it addresses topics that women may discuss with few friends but is never addressed with your spouse or partner that you are in a relationship with. Also, the show shows the biblical/spiritual perspective from Rev. Run and the more free spirited thoughts from Tyrese. 

As a young woman, I love hearing the two sides of the many topics discussed such as born again virgins, marriage longevity, purity, and relationship decisions. You get to hear their honest thoughts on what is right and what they do. 

Tyrese is correct when he says "How can you naturally be a wife/husband when you don't have a representation of it in your life?" It is hard for many of us to know what the roles, position, place and value of a husband/wife really is because we were not raised by people in healthy, successful marriages. This show is opening up to that misperceptions of "I want to be a wife" without knowing what that actually means.

I love when Rev. Run says he didn't touch his wife before marrying her because he knew the fruits of his labour would be rewarded for his obedience. His lifestyle is a representation of the perspective he's shares on the show.

You have tune in to this show on OWN at 10/9c. 

Let this show spark conversations in your household.
