Always & Forever, Love: African American Success Stories of Marriages 20+ Years Strong was written to highlight, uplift, encourage, and celebrate Successful Marriages within the African American community.
Through it all we (African Americans) have had and are continuing to have success in the areas of marriage and family, contrary to the fact that some statistics point to the fact that most (African American marriages) end in divorce.
In the front of the book there are 8 (African American) couples that met online and developed a relationship that led to marriage. This shows how some couples are meeting and how a number of those meetings are leading to marriage in the age of the internet and social media that is prevalent today.
The remainder of the book consists of approximately 50 couples that have been successful and happily married 20+ years, chosen from a variety of states. These couples were interviewed to find out what they’ve done and are continuing to do that has allowed them to have a long standing, loving, successful and happy marriage. Each couple has a one page article with the opposite page being a current photograph of the successful couple. These couples are divided into groups according to years of marriage, example: On-line couples, 20 - 35 years of marriage, 36 - 49 years of marriage, and 50 - 75 years, the longest standing couple.
These couples have thousands of years of experience in successful marriage and are qualified to pass on their hard won knowledge and wisdom to those on their own journey to a successful, happy, loving and lasting marriage.
