I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Karla and her husband Don, an interracially married military couple (Go Navy!).
They met and married while both were active duty Navy officers.
Karla is my friend on Facebook (and one of the few people I call “My sister from another Mother”).
She is well-known on interracial blogs, and always adds value and depth to any conversation.
Karla and Don are vibrant, active people who love life and love each other tremendously.
With 20+ years of marriage under their belt, they had so many pearls of sheer wisdom to share with our readers and listeners.
The conversation with them was chock full of golden nuggets, so we broke it into four parts (available on iTunes, Sound Cloud and Stitcher) :
Podcast Episode 032 – Life, Love and Marriage – In the Navy!
Podcast Episode 033 – How To Manage a Long Distance Marriage
Podcast Episode 034 – The 3 Key Ingredients Necessary for Attracting a Quality Mate
And last but certainly not least, Podcast Episode 035 – My Parents Tried To Diss The Woman I Love!
To every Black woman who has been told that a non-Black man won’t stand up for her, LISTEN UP:
That is a LIE.
Don’t believe it.
Don’t fall for the okey-doke.
Men who will stand up for you, defend you – and choose YOU over family and friends DO exist, and Don is living proof of that fact.
Listen as he shares his parents’ reaction to the news he and Karla were getting married.
Better yet, listen to his reaction.
You can listen to “My Parents Tried To Diss The Woman I Love!” on Sound Cloud.
It should go without saying that Karla and Don will definitely be back on the show.
Until then, listen and learn. Woot!
