Why do so many couples choose shacking as opposed to marriage?
Unfortunately it is not always “glorified beautifully” in the AA families!! It is taught or learned too late that having a positive person by your side is a wonderful thing.
Andrea from Chgo:
The reason many of us don’t get married is because the black woman’s standards have declined/fallen. Many black women will settle… just to say I have a piece of a man. That should never be good enough for any woman. Until black women change and demand more
from our men…the men will do a little as possible. The execution of Christian values in the black community is needed DESPERATELY
As a single black without children it’s hard to find a single black man without children. I don’t want an instant family. I want children with my husband. If kids are involved, there’s gonna be drama and I live drama free. I think it may be the same on the man’s side, he doesn’t want someone who has a gaggle of kids. With so many out of wedlock children in our community, it’s no wonder we marry outside our race more often.
