I saw you as perfect, so I loved you. Then I realized you were not perfect, so I loved you even more. No one else in the world understands me the way you do. Happy 9th Anniversary babe! To the man I’d say YES to over and over again. @djfadelf #marriage #blacklove

Special thanks to @HelloBeautiful for this great highlight! https://t.co/ffbvEe7Hno

Thank you for this article highlighting the Jacksons!! But oops.. I wasn’t married before.. he was. 😍🥰😘

Love and relationships require patience❤️ In order to let go of the past and mentally be in a place for a successful relationship, it took @EgyptSaidSo & @DJFADELF two years of dating before they took each other seriously. Can you relate? #BlackLoveDoc

Mike and I talked all about our experience filming the @BlackLoveDoc while on @sistercircletv this week. Catch this moment when he SHINED and I felt those flutters that made me want to be his girlfriend all over again! 🤣🤣 #KeepItSexy #KeepItFun. Heyyyyyyy now.... you married?
