Each year, Ebony Magazine dedicates an issue to black love. The cover and corresponding stories celebrate relationships while offering inspiration and advice on love. Their February issue has three separate covers featuring each of these “hot Hollywood couples”: Meagan Good and Devon Franklin, T.I. and Tiny and Bishop T.D. Jakes and his wife Serita.
Inside the issue, Ebony features three personal love letters from Devon, T.I. and Bishop T.D. Jakes to their significant others.
Here are some excerpts from the cover stories:
Meagan Good on her relationship with Devon Franklin:
“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.”
T.I. on how marriage has impacted his relationship with Tiny:
“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.”
T.D. Jakes on advice for a successful marriage:
“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.”
