Ronnie and I are excited to extend the legacy of Black and Married With Kids.com by presenting the inaugural BMWK Standard Awards. The “Standards” are presented to couples in the African American community who represent a positive example of marriage that others can aspire towards.
We’ve handpicked 13 couples that we feel fit this description perfectly. These couples span three categories: Celebrity Couples, Couples Working Together and Couples in Ministry. These couples not only provide the image, but they are doing the work. Many are in business or ministry together and most are having a direct impact on other couples who strive for better relationships.
Along with recognition here on BMWK, each honoree will receive an award that physically represents our appreciation, support and encouragement as a way of saying thank you.
Please join us as we salute the 2015 BMWK Standard Award Honorees and do your part in promoting positive examples of marriage in the African-American community by sharing this list.
Fatin & Aja Dantzler (Kindred the Family Soul)
Length of Marriage: We've been married for 17 years. Our wedding date is September 19,1998.
Number of Children: Six
Please describe how you support each other in your careers: We support each other in every capacity of our lives. It is the only way things work.
One piece of advice you would give to another married couple: Simply put, hang in there and remember why you started.
Why they were chosen: Not only do they inspire couples across the globe with their music, they also inspire us! The music that Fatin and Aja create as Kindred the Family Soul provides the soundtrack for the work that we do at BlackandMarriedWithKids.com. You can literally hear it playing throughout the week in our Atlanta area offices. The transparency they share through their lyrics proves that your marriage doesn't have to be perfect but it still can be oh so good.
