Yes it’s true. My fiancé does have 6 children. And that in itself is a big problem with my mother. I didn’t know going into the relationship exactly how many kids he had. Or his situation with them. So there was some deceit. She’s not happy at all. They fought hard before taping the show and during the show. Then after the show stopped taping she went in even harder. It’s a constant battle.
So you’re marrying a man who originally lied to you about his kid situation and your mother hates him? Oh, but it gets better:
That I don’t know. Since we’ve been in a relationship, his kids come over A LOT. His twin daughters even live with us now. But before we were together, I can’t say how he was as a dad since I don’t know. But as for now, he’s great with his kids.
So not only did he lie to you about his kids and your mother hates him, BUT you don’t even know if he was taking care of his kids before he met you?
And now his twin daughters have moved in with you? Where were they living before? Better yet where was he living before?
I get not wanting to be alone. I get wanting to be married. I even get dating a man with kids. But what I don’t get is how you date a man with six kids, from at least THREE different women whom your mother HATES and whose career is questionable at best (he does something in the music industry apparently).
This is a disaster waiting to happen. Her hard earned money is at stake because her income may be factored in to determine his child support. Her young daughter is not happy about the situation and no matter how cool the Baby Mommas may seem now (Kandi says they’ve been nothing but respectful) there is definite drama awaiting her down the road.
What Kandi needs to realize, as do many other black women (and women in general) that having a piece of man is not better than having no man at all. We have to stop buying into all the hye surrounding black owmen and marraige. Hell we’ve all heard it a million times before:
– 44% of black women have never been married
– 70% singles rate among black women
– More black men are in jail then college
– 70% of black kids are born out of wedlock
And on and on it goes.
And for some women this causes them to think they have to take any man, any man who is available regardless of how unemployed he is, how many kids he has, how many times he’s been locked up or whatever other pathology he may express.
Enough is enough already. You have to have more pride in yourself, love yourself more than to settle for a lying man with six kids who he probably wasn’t taking care of until he met you and moved into your house.
There’s a way to get married and start a family.
This ain’t it.
I hope Kandi Burruss gets it together and comes to her senses.
Goodness knows it’s much easier to call things off now then after you get married, merge families and give him child number seven.
