With the return of Black Love on OWN, Saturday, September 5 we’re introducing the Black Love community to the season 4 couples.
Anthony & Melanie
Years married: 18
Residence: Long Beach, CA
What we love about them: There’s nothing wrong with a man who knows what he wants! “The first time I saw him, he had talked to my sister. And so I walked right up to him, and he looked at me like he didn’t know me. Anthony is very cool. So I asked him, ‘Did you ever call my sister?’ He said, ‘No, I never called her. She’s not my type.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, what’s your type?’ And he goes, ‘You. You’re my type.’ It shocked me!”
Anthony & Melanie both experienced traumatic marriages prior to meeting, still in their 20s and they both made sure to work on themselves and to reach higher the second time around.
How to follow them:
Memorable Black Love quote: “You made me a better man, a wiser man. You made me a great dad and a great husband. It was more than I ever imagined, even as that little boy that used to dream about finding his soulmate. Thank you for making that little boy’s dream come true. I love you.” – Anthony
