With the return of Black Love on OWN, Friday, May 14th, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the season 5 couples.
DeShun & Dwight
Years married: 22
Residence: Orange County, CA
What we love about them: After 22 years together and navigating financial and health concerns, they are extremely transparent about their journey through it all. “The work for me is if I love her then it has to be lived out. So the way that I live it out is, I try to get to know what makes you tick, what sets you off, and I try to love you the way you want to be loved.” – Dwight
Memorable Black Love quote: “When I’m in my head, I’m in my head and it can be a dangerous place when you don’t have anyone to give you direction on how to think of things in a different way.” – DeShun (on how therapy has helped their relationship)
