💬 Comments on the video

My father was laid off from General Motors back in the early 80s. Not once did my mother treat him any less than during those 2 yrs. My father added value to the household by taking care of my sister and I before & after school, cooking, and taking care of the house. My mother had a job with a long commute. They may have had their differences but we never saw it. She still respected the man he was. You can add value to a household/home without bringing money in. Woman have been doing it for centuries. My parents have been married 51 years.

In a marriage sometimes one is the Anchor, the other the Sail.. The roles are interchangeable depending on the season, but the main objective is to provide support for the other during the journey. I thoroughly enjoyed this dialogue.

What would it look like for the dreamer to be the woman and not the man, I wonder.

I appreciated how Melissa interjected her story in how she identified with the newly married couple. It immediately brought so much compassion to the environment that I felt they needed. Sometimes just knowing someone understands is a breath of fresh air.

This just confirmed some of the issues I have with marriage. In most cases it's women who have to sacrifice their dreams, comfort, security and voices for love and to protect the male ego.

Issa is a bum. He’s wasting this gorgeous woman’s time.

It sounds like struggle love sprinkled with fairy dust. Relationships need to be mutually beneficial for both people. You should be better together!

👀 Issa married Casie just because she stayed when he was homeless.

Author — Hey Y'all


Oh lawd, so we are just going to act like it's ok to marry a homeless person that don't even claim u, this dude said she is wrong about the time she think they started dating. Teach your daughters better.

I honestly didnt care for the message this video is sending! I got nothing but struggle love vibes and settling from this.

I would never allow my son to marry any woman if he couldn't provide financially for himself first and then another woman.
One of the strongest attributes to a healthy, stable marriage is SELF DISCIPLINE and being RESPONSIBLE.
Asking a woman to follow your dream based on a desire to be married is very disrespectful and selfish.

I would never allow my daughter to leave a home her father had worked hard to provide for her into the hands of a man who can not provide for her.

Contrary to society's consistent manipulation, LOVE has never been an emotion. It is a tangible exchange between two people.

So nobody's gonna talk about Casie's gorgeous locs???🥰

Author — The Living Room


“So you said yes to his proposal while he was homeless?”
“That’s dope” 🤣💀the black community gotta do better

Dont get me wrong! I'm happy things worked out for them but I could never date for a man's potential nor will I be the Ride or Die Build a man type of woman.

Why is it that so many black couples date years and years before they marry?
