With the return of Black Love on OWN, Saturday, September 5 we’re introducing the Black Love community to the season 4 couples.
Brandi & Kareem
Years married: 3
Residence: Los Angeles, CA
What we love about them: We love a good teenage love story! And while in high school back in Baltimore at 16 years old, Kareem knew Brandi was the one. Before tying the knot, the couple weathered the ups and downs of a long-distance relationship. During that season in their courtship, they leaned in on one another. Learning each other’s needs and growing independently and as a unit.
Memorable Black Love quote: “The minute we got married, things changed astronomically. My life, trajectory, and everything started working out. I feel like I had the support from her [my wife], and she gave me the drive to do even more. I tell her mom this every time. ‘The minute I got married. Things changed. I’m on the upswing.’” – Kareem
