Black Love Story

This week’s Black Love Story is Al & Merry Garrett. Who have been together for 26 years and married 25 years. They met after Al’s Aunt Jeanie attempted to introduce Merry to ALL of her nephews… she was successful with a creative seating plan for her daughter’s wedding and ensuring no one was out of place.
When did you know your partner was the one?
- Al says, “after Merry stopped dating other dudes and screening phone calls… so within about 3 or 4 months.”
- Merry says, “After a quiet but really fun trip to Washington DC – I was like…hmmm may beeeee…” (He da one!).
What is the key to their relationship success? ,
- Al says, “Patience, knowing when to shut up and when you better speak up.”
- Merry says, “Only one person can be the real boss – yes, boss of the relationship. You have to schedule fun time to do things you normally would not do. Make sure you both come to an understanding when it comes to finances, child rearing, how to train the family dog, chores…etc. think of your home as a mini business – what do you want your ROI to be.”
What advice would you give to young married couples?:
- Al says, “Communication is the most important thing and making sure you take meaningful time out with each other – that is important. Know your lane and areas of expertise. You did not marry the family just her and that is good!”
- Merry says, “You know within a few to 6 months or so (if you’ve done your homework) whether or not that person is the one. If they are not the one, move on because life is too cool to waste on a a fool. The longer you are with someone will not make the bad better but it will make the good better. Bickering is AWESOME as long as you do not go to far. If your fellow was raised among good strong females that did not spoil him – you probably have a keeper. Look at the relationships you’ve been exposed to since birth – do not duplicate that bad ones. “
Anything else you want to tell us about your love story?:
When we got back to Connecticut after a trip… Al pulled the vehicle over and got down on both knees on a cool day in the autumn leaves in October and asked me to marry him. That next September, we had the big wedding, said I do, 2 dogs and one 21-year-old daughter later the rest is still history in the making. I think our love story is based on success in work, finances, fun, being creative, bravery and a tight-knit family of 3 humans in a small town.
Thanks you Merry and Al for submitting their black love story. If you want to be featured on the podcast go to https://blaclovematters.com/lovestory/ to submit your black love story and we’ll shout you out!
