With the return of Black Love on OWN, Friday, May 14th, we’re introducing the Black Love community to the Season 5 couples.
Shireen & Charles
Years married: 4
Residence: Los Angeles, CA
What we love about them: Charles & Shireen have a foundation of friendship and met when Charles had a girlfriend, so even though he was crushing on Shireen, she knew her worth and wasn’t giving him the time of day. Now, they’re four years into marriage and three years into parenthood married and learning a lot about sacrifice including moving cross country away from friends and family for one of them to start a new job. It was anything BUT an easy transition.

Memorable Black Love quote: “To me, marriage is finding happiness in your partner’s happiness, even if it’s not perfect for you as a solo individual.” -Shireen
