20: … Should I Get Married?! Let’s Talk ENGAGEMENT
Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get married... maybe! If you’re trying to figure out if you wanna spend the rest of your life with this person or cut your losses and move on to the next (or just run for the hills), this is the episode for you!
Zuri & the Group Chat (Travasha + Leah) are kicking it off — and they’re on opposite ends of the spectrum! We’ve got anti-marriage vs. #wifeyforlifey, and you’ll love the debate. Plus they discuss if a wedding is worth it, and how their childhood/parents crafted their ideas about marriage. There’s also a really random tangent about exchanging cows for women... how did they get there? Help. Get ready for a hilariously honest convo with some majorly different POVs.
Finally, Zuri chats with Beverley Andre, who is an amazing marriage and family therapist. Beverley is going to breakdown signs that you and your partner are (or aren’t) ready for marriage; why love isn’t enough of a reason to get married; and provide expert tips on navigating the “if you like it then you BETTER put a ring on it” conversation with your partner!
