See my comment above about co-parenting. Divorce. When I told hubby (jokingly) that he could keep his lil child support-I want 50-50 custody. He got suuuuper quiet. Our kids are young so he knows what that means. #noskrugglemovementEspecially when that staying single for life means being in a relationship where you do everything as a married couple except make it legal. Everybody throws Oprah out as the new model for monied women in relationships but no doubt Steadman standard of living is subsidized by Oprah's. I don't care what kind of old money family dude come from, he wouldn't live how he live or play how he play if it wasn't on Oprah's dime but the difference between their dynamic and the average upwardly mobile middle class chick is every dollar that Oprah spends on Steadman (and Gail) is a tax write off.
Yep. But at the same time black women as a collective embrace struggle as a virtue so those folks are selling it to the right audience.
