With the return of Black Love on OWN, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the season 3 couples.
Michael & Mecca
Years married: 4
Hometown: Los Angeles
What we love about them: One of the beautiful things we love about Michael and Mecca’s relationship is their ability to give each other space to explore and discover as their spiritual beliefs change. While Mecca’s spirituality has evolved over the years to include meditation and crystals, Michael says his belief system is different but he still gives her room to be her own being.

Memorable Black Love quote: “One day the words ‘I love you’ kind of slipped out and it wasn’t like I consciously said the words — this sounds corny but I do write romantic comedies — it was like my heart said it.” — Michael
