With the return of Black Love on OWN, Friday, May 14th, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the Season 5 couples.
Areva & Ernest
Years married: 31
Residence: Hancock Park, CA
What we love about them: Parenting can play a huge role into the ascension or the demise of any relationship. Although these two law school-sweethearts had to deal with a new normal, raising a son with Autism, they quickly learned to build a grit and forge a united, stronger bond for their son and themselves. We love how they were determined not to comply with others’ expectations and limitations for their family.
How to follow them:
Memorable Black Love quote: “Probably what prevents people from getting a diagnosis is shame and then the shame leads to isolation.” – Areva
