Last night’s episode of BET’s sports-themed scripted series “The Game” was saved from a sure disaster by the superb acting talents of Brandy Norwood (Chardonnay), Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack) and Coby Bell (Jason Pitts).
Jason, who married Chardonnay in a drunken stupor the day after they met, discovers that she has not paid back $80,000 in student loans. Fearing that Chardonnay has more to hide, he makes the decision to lie to her about getting a vasectomy. Chardonnay, who desperately wants a child to complete her as a woman, suspects that Jason is lying to her — and she sets about to confirm her suspicions in her own inimitable way.
Although Jason and Chardonnay’s spur-of-the-moment marriage is not the ideal way, it is a perfect example of a non-dopamine relationship.
Rather than allow their flaming passion and uncertainty of dopamine-fueled emotions to dictate their decisions, they remain cool headed and goal-oriented. For instance, Chardonnay didn’t get pregnant right off the bat (as would be the case if dopamine was flowing). Instead, she gives herself a goal of 3 years to get pregnant. That’s the smart thing to do when you are newly married and getting to know your husband. It also gives her time to get her finances in order.
