One Couple's Simple Mantra for a Lasting Marriage: "Self-Love for 2"

Season 2
CC | tv-pg
DeWanda and Alano have been married for eight years. In talking about finding the right person and a lasting relationship, Alano mentions that women often ask whether he knows a "good" man to set them up with. The mistaken assumption, he says, is thinking that there aren't enough "good" men, or women, for that matter. The problem, he says, is with how many people just don't want to be married, which, he says, is the natural result of how marriage is portrayed in our culture: a laborious slog.

"For me, it's really simple," DeWanda says. "It's like self-love for two. And that's how I think about it. Every day."
