With the return of Black Love on OWN, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the season 3 couples.
Egypt & Mike
Years married: 8
Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia
What we love about them: It took years before Egypt actually let Mike in. Why? She admitted at the time she was still working through baggage from past relationships. However, she began to see him differently after bumping into him on a house-flipping project and seeing his work ethic. Their love took time as she worked on her healing and growth, and Mike was patience, loving and supporting every step of the way.

Memorable Black Love quote: “Before we can prepare ourselves for the right man to enter our life, we got to get our minds right. Let go of our baggage, go through counseling, go to therapy, just purge.” — Egypt
