With the return of Black Love on OWN, Friday, May 14th, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the Season 5 couples.
Alphonso & Erica
Years married: 10
Residence: Los Angeles, CA
What we love about them: They met as single parents in their 40s on a dating app and they are adamant love is possible as long as you’re willing to work at it! They are committed to one another and in 10 years, have never slept apart – except that one time Erica tried to sleep on the couch and Alphonso followed her there. Watch Black Love to find out what happened next.
Memorable Black Love quote: “Being vulnerable is a sign of strength and not a weakness.” – Erica
