"You have to create the space within your relationship to allow each other to be who they truly are and not what you want from your idea of a "husband/wife"
BLP: How did you and your spouse meet? How would you say the love story began?
Jamarr: We met the old fashion way, at a bar. We went to the same High School, but did not know each other.
In 2007 we ran into each other after college at an event at a bar in Chicago. Later she invited me over and we literally talked until the sun came up then went on our first date that day. And haven't looked back.
We "dated" for 6 years before getting married in 2013. Then in 2016 we broke our marriage and were on our way to getting a divorce. I was staying with one of my friends and she was living at our home.
One night we met at a Starbucks to discuss how we'd separate everything and ended up in another transformative conversation. After that she asked me if I wanted to come back home. And we began the process of rebuilding our relationship the right way.
What else would you like to share ? Since then we've completely changed our relationship to be more than each other's husband/wife started a relationship and coaching business to help others reach their own heights in love and life.
Advice that you would like to share with singles? Sounds cliche but communication is so important. You also have to create the space within your relationship to allow each other to be who they truly are and not what you want from your idea of a "husband/wife". And most importantly, each person needs to get in touch with their true self and stand in that truth. If you guys are meant to be that real you will be a perfect fit for your partner's true self, we call it the onion baby (long story).
