Ebony Magazine has revealed the three couples who cover the February 2014 issue of their annual ‘Black Love’ edition.
David and Tamela Mann, aka Mr. Brown & Cora from Tyler Perry’s ‘Meet The Browns,’ are my favorite of the three couples who cover this year’s ‘Black Love’ issue and I feel they deserve the top spot in this post after maintaining a 25 year marriage.
The cute couple revealed how they maintain the passion in their relationship, stating:
Stay in love because when you’re in love, it covers a multitude of fault. Our relationship wasn’t based on good sex or having a lot of money. It was based on just straight friendship. That’s what has kept us.” –David Mann
“I pray and ask God to keep my heart and my eyes burning only for David Mann. I speak his name in my prayers, because I want the desire to stay, so when he touches me, I get chills.” –Tamela Mann
The other two couples covering the Ebony’s February 2014 ‘Black Love edition are Lala Vasquez and her hubby Carmelo Anthony and Mariah Carey and her hubby Nick Cannon.
Check out the covers below + check out what each couple has to say about keeping love alive…
LaLa Vasquez and Carmelo Anthony speak about their relationship and each reveal that they are in it for the long haul:
“There were people coming in and out of my life, and I didn’t really know whom to trust. She was one of the people who stood by my side through thick and thick. Even to this day, she’s always right there.” -Carmelo Anthony
“…We knew no matter what, we wanted each other. We needed [to be] in each other’s life, and that’s what’s been able to sustain this relationship all those years.” -La La Anthony
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon spoke about their love and marriage and revealed their love has grown stronger over the years:
“It was early on when I found out how spiritual she was, and we had conversations about kids and how to live life. For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I’ve always wanted.” -Nick Cannon
“Having babies definitely strengthened our bond because all the love that you have for each other is manifested into these two incredible beings.” –Mariah Carey
