Ciara Wilson sparked debate on social media after she told her followers she prayed for a good man like NFL quarterback Russell Wilson.

Some women took inspiration from Ciara's experience, but others criticized her for implying that God doesn't answer prayers for women who can't find or keep a man.

ESSENCE stopped actress Meagan Good on the red carpet and asked her if she prayed to find her husband.

"I know my prayer was not for a husband but for help. For help, for growth, to be closer to God, to know what I'm supposed to be doing specifically and in that prayer time, consistent prayer time, is when I found out that I was about to be a wife and that he was my husband before we even came together. Sometimes, we pray for things that we want but I think that it’s really about praying for more of God and the things that we want come to us, that are meant for us."

The 37-year-old actress married Columbia Pictures executive DeVon Franklin in 2012. They have no children.

Watch Meagan's response to the question below.

  • UsuallyItsBusiness25

    I love them together .

  • Kimberly King

    I like them as a couple. Also, I think it's dope that neither of them don't have kids. So if they decide to go that route, they can experience it for the first time together. I prefer men with no kids, but the older he is, the more likely he has a child or children. My boyfriend and I don't have any kids. If we do get married, I would like to enjoy our marriage for a few years by being ALONE with each other before we bring kids into the equation. Anyway, cute couple !

  • Nik

    There's no magic formula for manifesting a spouse. A lot of women out here thinking because they are not married they must have missed a step. Nowadays it is hard for people to find a quality mate. And just because a woman gets married it does not mean she has a superior ability to find and keep a man because a lot people are linking up and remaining together for reasons other than love.

  • Vonn

    Eyebrow growth? JK

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    That's good Meg!! I like them and all but she should have prayed for hair growth cuz them shaved sides is tired chile. LAWWWDDDD!!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree...I dont have any kids and the last man I dated who didn't have atleast one child was 7+ years ago....the guy Im seeing now doesn't have any children and we both are in our mid thirties...I love kids I just think that when your dating a man who has children its a distraction especially if their childs mother is a nuisance...I always said I wanted my first child to be with someone who didn't have any children so we could experience it together...me and him talked and I asked him if he wanted kids...he corrected me and said "No...I want a family"...My draws almost melted right off...

  • Nik

    Your position is good counsel. That's wisdom!

  • Raquel

    I feel her though. I remember saying outloud (not necessarily praying) that I wanted a man who had a good job, made good money, was educated, had his sh*t together.....and NONE about him as a person. Boy, did I learn. I met a man who had ALL THOSE THINGS, but was an a**hole, was boring in bed, selfish, rude and just a prick all around. I learned my lesson on that one!

  • Chicagowise

    "..but others criticized her for implying that God doesn't answer prayers for women who can't find or keep a man."

    That made me holler! ? With all the sh/t happening in this world, why would "god" have time to help people find a good mate?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Will Meghan yew got both...yew got a Huzbin and growth....and wut a handsome huzbin

  • Applebootay

    that God doesn't answer prayers for women who can't find or keep a man...............You play too murch Sandra!

  • KcoolMuziq

    DeVon Franklin(whom I attended an ULTRA star studded premiere screening of one of his films "Brealthrough" a couple of months ago) Is a great speaker an inspiration. I also like that Meagan doesn't conform to criticism on what a ministers wife is suppose to dress like.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmao??...git OUT>>>>?

  • Applebootay

    I prayed for my EX husband also..........I guess the devil listens to prayers too? IJS

  • Shawty

    It's up to you to recognize when God has put your soulmate in your path. Unfortunately most folks realize it when the soulmate is long gone.

  • Raquel

    Me too!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I prayed for a Jason Mamoa type for the past 5 years... I think God got sick of me asking for it and gave me Tyrone's and Leroy's...

  • Applebootay

    I hope so...LOL....I hope this thick drawed in heavy black brows goes away....

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I try not to stare directly at them...when I see a video of her...Chile...

  • Shawty

    You got what you asked for not realizing that it was NOT what you really wanted.

  • Shawty

    lol

  • Lovely1

    This is good. I can relate. lol Scared me half to death, but I had to own that it was what I asked for! Grateful I was able to get away and move on with my life.

  • Nik

    There's so many teachings that put the entire responsibility on God, and when it doesn't happen people think they must have done something wrong to not have favor with God in that area.

  • Raquel

    Yep! My homegirl kept telling me to be careful what you wish for. LOL She was right. She was like since you my girl, I won't say, "I told you so". Damn, I can be so hard headed at times. lol

  • Capricornlady

    Meagan cant get them eyebrows quite right can she? Maybe she should pray about that. ???

  • Renee26

    Both had their prayers answered and are happily married. Good for them!!

  • Chicagowise

    I met a guy who owns a white Rolls Royce, a white BMW, and a red Ferrari. That Rolls is something else! Too bad I can't say the same thing about the car's owner.

    He is rude, egotistical, and about as exciting as listening to grass growing!

  • Bashi22

    Her husband always praying everywhere on the red carpet, in the drive-thru, at the gym, in the traffic ect. Is Meagan Baptist yet? Are they unequal yoke???.

  • Renee26

    ?

  • bemetoo

    Yes a husband doesn’t define a woman Ciara is a weak snake ass pass around

  • Raquel

    Same! He was controlling and mean. He felt that because he had those status symbols that I should bow down to him and I do as he said. GIRL. I had to make an exit. QUICK.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile we get it!!!

  • Nik

    I thought they were Seventh Day Adventists?

  • fresnostateofmind

    pass around? damn.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I did the same thing Meagon and chile ...... lost a lot of friends, because I grew ...... and my man chile ..... he came right on in ...... Through that process I learned I had to make room for what God had for me .... ya gotta grow to allow what's right for you to enter into your life .... if not it will fall apart ......Told many of my old clients this as well .... you gotta make room for love ..... and that means grow !!!!! The ones that stunt that growth must be removed expeditiously !!!!!! and in this day in time with my azz there are no returns ..... old friends and exes can miss me !!!! Sounds about right Meagan ...... and Ya'll know I ain't stuttin no Cierror and her Hexanbeast azz chile ! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif Frauds!

  • Raquel

    "and about as exciting as listening to grass growing!"
    ______________________________________________
    CHILE!!!! He was BORRRRRRING, you hear me! I mean, I think that's why his wife left him after only 4 years. He was not a fun person at all and that didn't fit with me because I am bubbly and outgoing. He was like dead weight. I found myself trying to change for him to make him happy.....as soon as I noticed that, I had to bounce.

  • Lovely1

    Absolutely! I had friends clapping for me because everything looked good on the surface. Being wined and dined, receiving gifts, his status, etc. I was around him all the time and things started to present themselves. Finally, I said "heck naw" and got to steppin. Never felt so good. It's so easy to lose yourself without knowing it! Going to be careful what I put in the next prayer and just focus on growing myself. Ciara had it made because she is in the public eye and Russell wanted her from jump. Her story is not everyone's story tho. I hope she's genuinely happy. You can absolutely tell how happy Megan Good is. Her and Devon both. Hard to find.

  • Let them eat cake

    i tell folks all the time everything ain't from God.

  • Shawty

    See we tend to ask for material things. We should be asking for a man with a good heart, family oriented, one that takes care of home, faithful and so forth. We look at the material stuff not realizing that he can have ALL the material things that we are attracted too and be the devil reincarnated.

  • Let them eat cake

    she doesnt need to listen to the public she should listen to God.

  • Applebootay

    He shoooo wasn't ....I don't know who sent him but it certainly was not GOD.

  • Nik

    I had that same convo with someone yesterday about "making room". People need to know themselves well enough to understand how not making room shows up in their lives, then work to correct it.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Prayer definitely helps.
    I feel my husband praying for me daily.
    I don't know what he looks like or sounds like but the more I pray and discipline myself for the way and desires of God over my life I know my future husband is drawing near and I will not have to wait long to become a wife and mother that puts God before it all.

  • Raquel

    Absolutely!! I lost myself and started to do things that he wanted me to do and he never had to reciprocate. I made excuses for him all the time. And then after like the 6th or 7th date (when I saw that he liked to flirt with the white female waitresses in front of me) and then return back to his quiet self when we were together, it told me alllllll I had to know. It wasn't a black girl that he wanted.

    But Russell is just as weak in my opinion. Doesn't matter what his bank account holds, I NEED a man to be a man!. I'm the kinda female that will run all over you if you let me. I NEED a stern dude that's willing to tell me "I'm doing too much, go sit my ass down somewhere".

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Lovely1

    Yep! Wow. So very similar to my experience. I was starting to think he preferred white women as well. Was far too peculiar, but had enough in him to pull me in with good looks, charm and intellect. He acted "down" to get me. Wasn't long before he was turning his nose up at black establishments or flaunting his money in front of waitresses, etc. I was turned off and just kept watching. There was nothing that would have made me stay; gifts, nothing. Glad we both saw the signs.

Been there, done that. You spend more time trying to figure out if "this is the answer to my prayers" than you spend paying attention to the signs that that MF is NOT!

There is nothing wrong with waiting for marriage to start a family and nobody will make me feel bad about my decision to wait. Period.

  • Carrington

    I was raising my kid and made it a point of never having a revolving door around him. One time he asked me if I've ever had sex. "MF, where TF you think you came from!!?!" LMAO

    I guess, in his head, "All my friends dad's keep hoes... where yorn?" I made it a point of focusing solely on him as a single dad. At first it was only going to be for a year... then I was like, "OK, he's effin' up in school, he needs MORE attention... so, six more months... then... six MORE..." before I knew it I was like those ladies I didn't believe who said, "I haven't had sex in three years." by then, my attitude has worsened. I didn't have time for bull$hit. Once you hit 40, bull$hit hit different. If I didn't like your HAIRDO, I was out.

    Now, I'm so caught up in my own space... coming when I want to, NOT coming if I don't want to. CUMING when I want to. Fawdin' when I want to. Not changing the sheets until I want to. Socks on the side of the bed for as long as I want to. I'm in that "wish a MF WOULD" phase... and I can't see it changing.

    thats right...i've made many mistakes...and have now mastered the art of an inner knowing. Pay attention to your dreams also because the devil will try to plant evil seeds in them, but cancel them upon waking and break evil covenants that you don't even know about. Tell God if its from him you come into complete agreement with his will.

  • T Young

    You don't know Russell or Ciara. Just like they don't know your dusty ass exists. A man like Russell doesn't achieve what he has at the age of 30 by being anything but an alpha male. You, your man, your daddy and none of your friends or relatives could last a day in his shoes or achieve 1 percent of his accomplishments. ??

    As the resident atheist with a great man, I believe all of this “I prayed for growth, I prayed for a good man etc” is bullshit. Don’t pray for growth, put in the fucking work! Don’t pray for a good man, use discernment. Work on the toxic things about yourself-go to therapy, the gym, yoga, change your negative attitude and approach to life. I’m all about action f#ck prayer.

    Naaaaw, I'm cool on that kinda $hit. One time this broad had her brother go to my apartment complex, pretend to be me, get a KEY to my house and gave it to her.

    I would come home like, "TF these fingerprints come from on my phone... I KNOW I left the closet closed..." this MF would be talking to me while I was at work while walking through my apartment - asking me questions that I thought were stupid like, "What did you do with that candy I bought you?... I know for a FACT that you gave it to some b*tch..." and I'm like, "How TF could you know that for FACT?!?" and she said she looked through my blinds on the balcony as if she could see my ENTIRE house through a crack in the blinds.

    I get home and realized that I had folded laundry and the box of candy was underneath a folded pile. I called my complex and asked, "when was the last time a key was made to my house?"... "hold please... Yes, you came in on January 5th and said someone stole your bag at the gym and you needed a key to get in."

    Bro, I left my job and went off so hard on them people in that office that TWO people about to sign a lease walked out! .. Damn, that was 1998 and I just got re-mad! LOL

    I will attract a life partner that is kind to me and others, communicate well, financial successful, sexual towards me, have eye for me, not mean spirited, romantic in his own way that suits my taste and I am receptive of it, healthy active lifestyle, knowledgeable but not boastful or breakdown to me or know it all, love adventure, will bring out the best in both of us, will build our lives and empire together, if have children make be 1-2 no parental drama, family loving man, not a punk, caring towards me and others, marriage will be for me and him dating with a purpose: you can add more that in your alignment.

    Mind you girllllll
    My mom loves to sheit on her sisters because she was married and had us in wedlock but she forgets that my dad had kids on her, would get violent with her when drunk and often times gambled money away in casinos. Like ok i had a father and he actually taught me things and raised me but he was a crappy husband and until the day he died he showed more love to his mistress than her so why oh why would you want that for me? Im telling you that in my experience men dont want me like i want to be wanted Nd your answer is who cares get married and have kids like ?

  • Michelle Peele

    I don't know about the sense part. My paternal grandparents married when they were early teens; starting having babies immediately. Because of this, some of the older kids were forced to quit school to work to help take care of the family. To me, I don't think that's fair or even wise. Granted, they didn't have the knowledge that some have today. But at some point, you stop having babies...especially when you get to 16 kids!

    I’ve read the Bible and I just knew someone was gonna mention Egyptians, lol. I’m not here to argue. But you should know there were/is many other people who was/are enslaved. Like I said, it seems like slavery isn’t that big of a priority for God to dismantle it ????? He’s omnipresent and all powerful but yet only certain groups of people get the privilege of him to dismantle slavery? Just interesting, as Dre Clemons said.

  • Bree

    I think it is a shame that believers get bashed for praying for a husband, but folks be out here praying for cousin Pookie to get out of jail when he shot nine people. While I was single, I prayed for God to send me a mate, someone I could grow with, someone who would be not only a great husband, but father to our children. I also prayed for discernment. I asked God to work on me first, then present me to the man that I am suppose to marry. Like he did with Eve. Before she was present to Adam, God formed her. And that was my prayer.

    Non believers have their own way of doing things. Sometimes things work out, and sometimes they don't. One of my husband's biggest regrets is that he said he should have married me sooner and that he started working on himself more, when I walked into his life. But everything works in God's timing. Although we work hard together, I would not trade my husband nor the bond we share for nothing in the world. I will tell anyone to seek God before considering marriage. Sometimes marriage is not the key to a person's problems or personal development. You have to work on yourself first, before you can fully love another person.

  • Seldomseen

    Ciara just makes it up as she goes. It's easy to create a narrative, featuring God no less-- to end the way it ended up. Russ has a God-complex so it super feeds into that as well. The gag is, there was no "Russell" prayer--the story goes they were backstage at some event. Russell saw her in the reflection of a mirror then God spoke to him & said save her/help her something like that. I'm paraphrasing Russell's words from a Rolling Stone interview he did yrs ago. Basically, he just picked her.

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Bree

    I can never understand how people debate God. If I don't believe in something or don't want to go to church, it is not up for discussion. The bible has been tried, tested, and proven. People still debating God's existence is baffling after all these years. I don't deal with Buddha or Mohammed, so I would not be in a forum debating their existence, but hey this is a free country, just like this is a free forum.

  • Dre Clemons

    "The bible has been tried tested and proven"

    Which version?

  • Applebootay

    What does it profit, my people, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one
    of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you
    do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
    But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without [a]your works, and I will show you my faith by [b]my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is [c]dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made [d]perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was [e]accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

    25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    James 2:14-26

  • Alextra Ballard

    It shol is?

  • Gloria

    Hey Bree. I do believe in God. I NEVER said I was an atheist. And my response wasn’t questioning his existence. I critically think and use my brain. Lol. If you read the Bible, you are bound to have questions and generalizations based on how the world is. It is totally okay to analyze and have questions as a Christians guys!! Slavery is common in our world. The trans-Atlantic slave trade went on for 400 years, for example. God obviously didn’t put a stop to it because it wasn’t something he wanted to do. It took war and casualties to stop slavery here in America. This is a fact. I’m not questioning Christian mythology, just stating a obvious observation.

  • Applebum

    I can’t stand this fraud of a husband. No true pastor would seek anyone in hollyweird to marry. And he recommends for her to make her sex scenes believable. He wants her to really get into them. He’s not a man of God. He’s a low down pimp.

  • Bree

    God adores marriage. It was the first institution he ordained and created, before His church. Many people don't realize that. Before Eve came into Adam's life, he was already working. I tell women all the time, make sure he has a job, or is working towards something. Biblical instructions are clear and God's formula works out the way God intended. I found that it is best for my life and for our family. Some agree, some don't. But such is life.

  • Navybeans95

    U have to become what u want to attract.. if you're insecure, mean spirited, emotionally unavailable, manipulative,.... you should stay away from relationships until u fix yourself....

  • Applebootay

    But you ARE questioning God reason for allowing certain things to happen or not allowing it...depends on how you look at it...but you wouldn't be questioning God if you knew HIM....and the only way to know him...is from Consistent reading, meditating, praying, worshiping, bible study, class, growing a relationship..

  • Dre Clemons

    There are currently slaves TODAY who are being bought and sold. Thats what I was referring to. Not your fictional "Prince of Egypt" story.....

    Prayer with works go hand in hand...a person that’s praying simultaneously works on themselves.. But it’s sad.. all this time I was rocking with u.. I agreed with most things you would say.. never had a clue u were an atheist.. that’s your business and you’ll have to deal with that...there’s no need to disrespect prayer just because something in this life made you lose faith... we can’t see air but we KNOW it’s there.

    Oh wow,....didn't know that

  • Navybeans95

    ??...yes ma'am

    Girl please. I’m not questioning it. All I said was that it seems like ending slavery isn’t a priority for him. That’s it. I would be doing a huge disservice to my creator if I didn’t use my brain and critically think. He knows me and I know him so that’s cool.

  • Gloria

    It seems like a lot of things aren’t a priority. He lets bad things happen all the time sis. He gave us this thing called free will. Evil is allowed in this world - starvation, slavery, war, rape, etc. The devil exists for a reason. I mean, don’t you think God could have eliminated the devil if he really wanted to? This is one big sims game and God is pulling all the strings. There are biblical references about God being idle and letting horrible things just happen. Let the humans be humans, basically. Those who have managed to maintain their faith in the mist of all this evil (that is allowed by our creator) will be saved. It’s ironic and may be uncomfortable to accept which is why I understand your contentious approach. I get it.

    Makes me think of when I ised to be on FB, and how people would make posts asking for people to pray for them, and then people would start commenting with praying hands, saying "prayers going up," and all that nonsense. And I used to just laugh to myself, cause them niccas knew good and dang well that they will have forgotten all about that prayer request as soon as the next post on their news feed catches their attention. And then I'd be thinking to myself what a fool the person requesting prayer was for not specifying their God by name, yet you're asking for prayers. You don't know wven know if the people you asking for prayer from even worship the same God as you. smh

    My grandparents were married for over 50 years but I bet if they were part of my generation they would have divorced. In that generation getting married was a way for a woman to have posterity, so even if the marriage wasn't all the way right people still stayed together.

    They married each other because she would be good for his career and vice versa. Trust me, the Christian community was shocked when they found out he was dating her. No one understood it until they did. Devon didn't want to be with a strong woman of God. Dating and marrying Megan worked for everything he wanted to do and is doing; the books, the talks about relationships and marriage etc. And the woman he married had to be a celebrity otherwise his books etc wouldn't sell the way they do. He knew exactly what he was doing when he chose her.

  • MistaO

    To be honest, most females today are not mentally balanced enough to be a wife or mother. As evidenced by the abysmal marriage rates, especially in the black community..

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ohhhh her career definitely benefitted. She starred in two primetime television shows (that didn't make it past the first season). She was in Shazam. And we all know she cant act...not really. Similar to Gabrielle Union

  • MistaO

    Other women also know their role and don't fall for stupid ish like "I don't believe in no gender roles"...oh and their older women don't actively sabotage the younger women who have husbands the way bitter black mommas do their daughters.

  • Neva RuthLess

    No. Most black men lack control of their sexual appetites, lack critical reasoning and logical skills to build a healthy black nation, community, or family. They lack the internal male instinct to build, protect, or provide for his women and children. Which is why the black community has abysmal marriage rates.

  • MistaO

    And those black men you speak of were raised by whom? I'll wait....

  • Neva RuthLess

    Other races of men especially white men know their roles as men, and know how to lead, build, protect, provide, problem solve, and produce. The older men don’t actively poison the minds and sabotage the young men by telling them to pump and dump while hollering these hoes ain’t loyal. White and other non black men also tend to not sell drugs to their own community.

  • Neva RuthLess

    You BIG mad.

  • Roxii Spades

    Facts!

  • Neva RuthLess

    They are usually raised by their single black mothers who were forced to raise them the best they could alone because black men routinely walk out on their children. Just like they do white women, Asian women, and Hispanic women. 92% of Black men’s BIRACIAL children are out of wedlock and 88% on welfare. Black men married to white women have the highest divorce rate in the country. I see a trend. Black men are the problem. Are you really going to blame black women for why black men have yet to build a black advanced civilization without the help from men of other races now? Pathetic. ?

    U have to be patient with everything.

Even though people can pretend, DeVon and Russell always seem happy with their women and these couples seem to be hanging in there when we know marriage can be tough. Kudos to them!

    Cut it out. I tire of this fake non belief you so vehemently declare.
    You know full well that He exists. You CHOOSE not to acknowledge Him. He gave you that very right.
    What's so telling about you is your mockery of those that do. What's even more telling is that you wish everyone else were non believers too.
    Why? Because Believers, their Faith and their Love for the God that you abandoned will always expose your ill fated rebellion... otherwise, you'd be able to disbelieve in peace. You aint the only atheist in the Garden but they let others express their faith without making an azz of themselves.
    You aint no atheist honey. And that's because He's still knocking. You can deny it here all you want, but He's still speaking to you. Hopefully, one day soon, you will get over yourself and Answer.

    They are a gorgeous looking couple. But I don’t buy a Man of God and Wife married for years and no procreation. I don’t know, I find that odd. Couples can of course choose not to have children but this a Christian Clergy couple. They seem more Hollywood than religious.

  • T Willis

    Lmao exactly

  • T Willis

    That is a bit of revisionist history, isn’t it? Lmao. Black women fail at choosing the right mate. They fail at practicing safe sex which results in unwanted children (80% illegitimacy rate). Black men walk away because they never wanted a committed relationship with you, and the children are unwanted. Black women think that sex+baby=love and commitment. It doesn’t. Men want sex without the commitment and without the baby. If you turn up with one (baby), doesn’t mean you’re entitled to the other (commitment). Black men are choosing to leave because they feel like they’re being manipulated and cheated. As a result, black women are raising at least 80% of community with their overly emotional illogical behavior. Hence why we now have an overpopulation of effeminate men who are overly emotional, catty, petty, and illogical. They’re mirroring the entity that’s raising them: black women. But black women aren’t interested in changing their behavior and they have the audacity to actually view themselves as some sort of modern martyrs smh

  • T Willis

    I’m agnostic and if there’s indeed a higher power, the number of ppl going on to glory or heaven or wherever, is going to be a very small number. I’m thinking less than a 100k out of billions of ppl lol. So, all the religious and atheists are pretty much in the same boat.

  • T Willis

    Yes, but those previous generations of yt men were there to pass on the lessons of being leaders, builders, and a support system for their communities. Black ppl have a much different history that begins with slavery and progresses with separatist tactics to prevent unity amongst black men and black women. Welfare, feminism, AIDS, crack, the prison system.... black families are not comparable to yt families. We have had far more obstacles just to retain our families.

    Black women reject traditional roles because they view it as some of indentured servitude- and they view feminism as freedom. Hence the “strong woman” archetype that was developed in the 80s, and still continues to be a blueprint for many younger generations. Black women don’t see that their position is more valuable in the home. And now, thanks to feminist wave in the 70s, we no longer have those black men that could lead, protect, and build. Instead, black women have been breeding with weak destitute men and getting on Welfare to raise them. That’s where we are now, 3-4 generations of weak black women who have breeded with weak black men, only to produce one of the weakest generations of our lineage. Our men are the product of weak women, so they’re incapable of competing with the yt men - who have their lineage and communities in tact - as leaders, builders, and providers. Instead we have a bunch of effeminate weak men that would rather be coddled and nurtured than running a household. They’re weak, and it’s indicative of the single woman who raised them.

  • Mazey1

    What exactly do YOU have to bring to the table that a man with options would want to marry?

  • T Willis

    Child molestations in the black community are under reported. Black ppl try to hide things like this in their communities because they don’t want to intentional put their ppl in jail, and a lot of black ppl blame the victims.

    The data show that:

    More than four in ten Black women experience physical violence from an intimate partner during their lifetimes. White women, Latinas, and Asian/Pacific Islander women report lower rates.
    Black women also experience significantly higher rates of psychological abuse—including humiliation, insults, name-calling, and coercive control—than do women overall.
    Sexual violence affects Black women at high rates. More than 20 percent of Black women are raped during their lifetimes—a higher share than among women overall.
    Black women face a particularly high risk of being killed at the hands of a man. A 2015 Violence Policy Center study finds that Black women were two and a half times more likely to be murdered by men than their White counterparts. More than nine in ten Black female victims knew their killers.

    Didn’t Malcom X say something similar? That the black man is praying to the same God as the yt man tying the noose around his neck... smh

  • the guest

    Obviously one would consider that obvious possibility. I commented on a post of my own free will, freedom of speech, and freedom of opinion. As I don’t know for a fact why they have not procreated within their wedlock, I’m honest in my observation that I found it odd that a Man of God and his wife of several years have not procreated.

  • T Willis

    I’m not religious and I side eye those who are....
    I’m agnostic, I believe there’s a higher entity in control... I’m just not a believer in a specific denomination...& I don’t believe in praying for silly stuff like a mate or “growth”. Both will come in their own time. Growth happens when you’re living your life. That’s not something that requires prayer. I will meditate and hope that my positive intentions will bless or improve a loved one circumstances like cancer, sickness, poverty... but “growth”? A man? Lol it seems so silly and ridiculous. People are human and are going to disappoint or disappear when they outlive their usefulness, so why waste energy on praying for a companion?

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Ya know what...it's not worth it ? I'm going to let you have your statement.

  • oshh16

    Interesting perspectives in these comments, and I like reading all the various thoughts and outlooks.

    I pray about everything, all that concerns me, all my cares I cast on the Lord cause He cares for me. His burden is light and His yoke is easy, thanking God for leading me in the way of righteousness and directing my path......
    1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

    Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
    Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV)
    28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

    Just a few scriptures that came to mind.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    It all stems back to single parents which goes to blame on both black men and black women , they shouldn’t be the only ones singled out. Believe it or not most people subconsciously are hard wired on how they are raised . This is why children from two parent households live more stable and functioning lives , not saying they are perfect , but they seem to always loop back to forming a family versus a single mother who was raised by a single mother with absent father.

    The thing I hate is how people are so willingly dropping babies just because with no reservations, research , work, respect ,’or history to the opposite partner they procreate with. It’s a terrible cycle in our community that doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

    He was wrong because it takes two to tango and blame goes on both man and woman and your right , the black slab shouldn’t be singled out especially when most black women uphold there duties as single moms , hopefully this trend in our community that of procreating with just anyone slows down . Like it should Legit be a sad picture and vibe when both the black mother and father ain’t in the pics from birth to baby shower , birth , and first steps. At the end of the day we can’t rape women , it takes for a woman to open her legs willingly for us to seed anyways . Just hope that do better , research , work , and build foundations before bringing a child in the world.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    The existence of god. I’ve always been curious and I always asked a bunch of questions. I’ll never forget it-we were in the bathroom and my mom was combing my hair getting me ready for church. I asked her where god came from. She told me he has always been here-that answer was dissatisfactory to me. At 5 something else didn’t make sense-they’d tell us to love our enemies. So I asked my mom if that meant we were supposed to love the devil too-she said no. That didn’t make sense bc he was our enemy too. Children are a blank slate until we choose to press religion on them. We’re all born atheists.

    I was with you until you said forced , nobody forces a woman to layup with a dead beat and deadbeats ain’t born overnight . You’d be surprised at what a little History , background , or upbringing check reveals about a person. Not saying that it full proof on where or what a person can end up as , but the screening if the screening process and prerequisites were more thought out then it would reduce the amount of what you consider “ forced single parenting “ And I’m saying the blame and change needs to go on both ends for both the man and woman , but ultimately a man can’t procreate until a woman spreads her legs. Y’all women hold the key and power believe it or not. Pussy holds a lot of power , it pushes life itself , literally , just wish more understood that .

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    SMH Stop what ? They asked a question and she answered and “ luck”

    Improvement and a better her, because it means nothing to meet perfect Best person for you , because if you ain’t in a good place to receive or appreciate a blessing then it means nothing.

In law school we discussed the constitution and the question arose about where religious rights interest with a person’s fundamental rights. So the prof asked me if I thought gays shouldn’t be able to get married because of what the bible says. And I paused and thought about it. I said they should be. And from there I started thinking why would god care what two consenting adults do and brand them abominations but let rapists get away with marrying their victims and paying the family money. I did a deep dive in the bible like it was the constitution and things didn’t add up. The god of the bible was a monster-seemed like he was made in man’s image. So I started studying several other religions to find something that made sense.

    When it comes to creation and how we got here , there is no such thing as logic , if it is then you tell and show us ? I eaches own , what one eats doesn’t make you shit . No need to unscrew someone else’s light bulb to shine reasoning amongst other views.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    But religion does affect us here in the united states particularly when it comes to views of “morality”-most prominently being abortion and homosexuality. Separation of church and state is blurred every year and the civil liberties union has to step in often. Religion affects other countries in even more negative ways where even birth control is illegal, divorce by the woman is illegal, woman are believed to not be equal to men, female genitalia mutilation, and the list goes on

    Which god sis-Zeus, Allah, Isis, Jesus...there are thousands. Some religions believe in many gods.

    I always thought she had good acting chops , just terrible choices in films . Eyes buoy was literally one of the few seriously toned movies where she wasn’t eye candy. Denzel said it best , choose your movies wisely , 1-2 movies can make or break you.
    For instance Halle berry didn’t get casted as a main character for one gig and on the same day asked If she could play the drug head fiend in losing Isaiah .

    I’m going to suggest to read the works of Stephen Hawking if you have questions about the earth and cosmos. We don’t have all the answers but we try our best to understand and get to them. That’s the difference between being logical and religious.

  • The Last Word

    Your logic requires god to be the god described in the Bible. If that assumption is incorrect, the god you describe might very well punish you for your Christianity.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    The thing is I think God aka The creator of us is beyond our reasoning or thinking . The way we think it ought to be may not be on the same frequency that most want to think.

    But if you think it ain’t a God , you’re sadly mistaken . The earth , ozone layer , our solar system , the sun , the fact that of the earth a little closer kilometers to 10 ft closet or further from the sun we would freeze or burn .

    Ain’t no way in hell, pun not intended that it ain’t a God . Life and earth itself is too intricate to be dismissed as just because.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Lolololol “this is too intricate therefore...god”

    So you say other races of men know how to lead and problems solve insinuating that blacks don’t , well I guess that means races or other women know how to choose those men whom you deem as right or better also. You’re putting your foot in your mouth with your venom and rhetoric towards black men .

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Yeah, one of my best friends is marrying a woman with no children but all of his side chicks have at least two. They let him come over and have sex hoping he’ll commit but they are nothing more than cattle to him.

    Influence comes in all shapes ,
    Forms and facets , it ain’t just exclusive to religion and religious people. You act as if there were not wars or drama prior to Christianity.

    Correction: A-typical

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Stick to the topic which is the negative affects of religion on society. My claim isn’t that religion is the only negative influence on society however it is one of the most-if not the most influential in society. Religion permeates people’s lives and becomes a heavy part of it to the point where people’s identities and religions are one.

    Christ is in every atom of your body. The little light youre gifted to be alive is by grace. You have the opportunity to make more light and never have to live in the flesh under this moon again. There is ‘something’ trying to save you from the hell youre trapped in. That’s not obvious?

    Exactly. Their names are really elements. Fire, water, etc. It’s telling you that certain elements created everything. In order to get the true knowledge you must decipher the meaning of each Hebrew letter in their names, or any other words of ancient scripture, etc. That’s how you read hieroglyphics. You cannot get instruction reading an English translation and the writers of English Bibles know that and do it to mislead and control the masses.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    After reading a few post some of these HOLIER than thou folks missed a lot of points. IB FOR ONE AN NOT CRITICIZING what she prayed about because FOR READY WHAT YOU PRAY ABOUT IS BETWEEN YOU AND THEE! HER COMMENT about "NOT PRAYING FOR A MAN" but "PRAYING FOR GROWTH" is somehow bashing those that DO PRAY FOR A MAN. Congratulations that she got her a good man. I personally love to see good black happy compatability. I like Ms Megan but she acting like PRAYING FOR A MAN is not what snagged her man. They appear happy and enjoying it all. SHE WAS KEPT HER CREEPING ON THE LOW AND SOON AFTER SHE GOT CAUGHT CREEPING WITH JAMIE FOX COMING FROM A HOTEL her Lil freak cover was blown and she got blessed with a a seemingly good man who adores her. Hey comment was a digb as if she wasn't BLESSED WITH A GOOD MAN BECAUSE OF HER PRAYERS.... SAVE THAT SHYT BEFORE all her Lil booty calls get exposed!

  • Sherese4AlabamaRollTide?

    Marriage, being a parent, GF/BF is not for everyone, if that’s your way of having peace in this world live in that and let no one tell you differently, myself on he other hand 35 black female married to a black king for 14 years yes I married really young lol our two daughters are our world, the only thing that I worry about as being a parent is this cruel ass world, you want to protect them from harm and just put them in a bubble? again being a parent or being someone’s wife or husband isn’t for everyone! And no one has the right to judge how someone choose to live their life!

  • sherri2016

    Thanks for the compliment I'm too blessed to be stressed and that's because of my black husband too bad your your another whose so screwed up that your partner's are too so again just like the last person your the common denominator

  • Joy King

    Oh My at this comment section. I always say anyone can get married. In my opinion, the real accomplishment is marrying the man or woman God created for you, which is rare. Most people settle and never marry the person who is truly intended for them. The reasons vary. That’s why I believe most married people I know aren’t happy.

    When I hear women bragging about having a husband, as if it’s some major accomplishment and acting as if they’re better than single ladies, I shake my head. I totally get what Meagan was trying to say. But I think the most important thing is praying to be the best person you can be. Everything else will fall into place. Including finding a husband or wife if that’s what your heart desires.

  • Look@m3

    Atheist need a purpose and an antagonist in order to be relevent. There. Every good story needs these things.....im tired trying to figure out why nonbelievers just cant just NOT believe in anything and live their best life. But dont let me say grace, or thank God or say God bless you. Everything they stand for is offended....chile. i used to ask the same question....they will be ok! I accepted it for what it was ...

  • Look@m3

    Chile you shoukd see a Ciara post. This is nothing! Black women arent supposed to be happily married or happy

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Spirituality doesn’t equate to Christianity. As you’ve stated there are many gods.

    One’s belief in an ethereal being that permeates this universe is older than Christianity and other Abrahamic religions.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    And in between that logic and religion is spirituality. Tis why there are so many world dogmas. Spirituality joins science and mysticism.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Have you seen American Gods?

    You might like that show! I believe it’s on Hulu or Prime.

    Do you believe in ancestral reverence? The practice of praying and speaking with your ancestral lineage.

    Why are women attacking Megan for being married and not having children? How do you know what’s going on in their household? Some women actually have a very difficult time carrying children and procreating. That’s not a crime. God will bless what he chooses to bless. We don’t know their situation and can’t judge. And best believe, some of you chicks that have been on birth control since 15 and/or have had every std under the sun, may end up dealing with fertility issues at some point in life. Be sensitive to others’ issues and stop judging. We all have our own paths.

  • Raquel

    Why are you so concerned though is my question??? Are you going to propose? ? FOH I don't need to prove anything to a faceless commenter to validate who I am and what I have. Lol Besides, if I tell you....I'm lying....if I don't, then you'll assume what you want.

    1. Prayer and Spirituality is Individualized (Do You!).

    2. Married or Single, Rich or Poor, we all have the SAME JOB, and that is regulating and navigating our humanness (mind, health, fulfillment and joy), and humanity (mutual respect).

    3. EVERY PERSON GETS A LOT IN LIFE, and yours is as GRAND as anyone else’s because look at Justin Bieber (among many)!

    Megan answered a question that she’s been talking about for awhile (promoting their couple’s book), so it wasn’t a diss to Ciara.

    And, I agree because marriage is so all-consuming, and even with the best intentions, marriages fail! Personal Growth may give you a different outcome or being just fine w/o a spouse, or being single!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Yet Atheists arent the ones going door to door to try to shove their beliefs down others' throats. Atheists arent leaving flyers on people's windshields. Atheists arent standing outside Planned Parenthood harrassing women about their choices. Your argument needs work.

  • Dre Clemons

    You just want atheists to be silent because you dont want us pointing out how stupid Christian logic is. You worship a magical wizard who is merciful and loving but allegedly sends people to hell for not believing he exists when quite frankly he has given them no reason to believe he exists.....So there is that.

  • Look@m3

    AND ALL CHRISTIANS are not doing this. Why is this always atheist argument. This is no different from someone putting an advertisement to a club on your car window with big booty girls on it. Simple fix, throw the damn advertisement away or dont answer the damn door. But no yawl mfers always wanna find a reason to argue. ....and you need jesus!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    What does "keep a man" mean? The only difference between a woman who can "keep" a man and one who appears to be unable to, is one will tolerate things to keep him that the next woman won't. Almost every woman I know that talks about "keeping s man" has been cheated on numerous times but chose to stay to "keep" a man.

    I think both Meagzn and Ciara have beautiful marriages. Whatever they prayed for, seem to be working for them because they both appear to be genuinely happily married. ?

  • Leggs1018

    At the end of the day we can either chose to let LOVE into our hearts, which will inadvertently allow our LIGHT to shine and with that an abundance of POSITIVE ENERGY shall follow suit! I’m a firm believer that we as humans have the ability to change and evolve and with that comes higher thinking and the innateness/ desire to want to share our lives with someone like minded. #LawofAttraction
