Iyanla Vanzant, the relationship expert and star of Iyanla: Fix My Life has struggled with marital issues of her own, even opening up to Oprah about the challenges she faced. With three failed marriages behind her, the relationship guru is stronger and wiser today.

Tyrese starts to pose a question to Iyanla about marriage, "If and when you decide to do it all over again—"

"Never," interjects firmly before Tyrese can finish.

Following up, Rev Run say, "Why did you commit to the men early on?"

"Relationships are not where we go to have fun," she says. "Relationships are where we go to heal and where we go to learn. And who you're going to attract is the person that's going to bring to the forefront the thing you need to learn or heal."

Iyanla then opens up about her personal life. "I went into the relationships that I went into. There were only three of them. I married the same man twice. If you don't get it the first time, you do that thing again."

Find out what Iyanla says she was subconsciously seeking in her marriage.
