On the secret to having a long-lasting marriage:
Honesty. That’s it. When I hear men say ‘I don’t tell my wife everything, you crazy?’ and I hear women say ‘I ain’t telling my husband that, you crazy?’ So you mean you trust somebody else other than the person you lay with every night, you slept with, you cried with, you make love to? So I think those long lasting things is simply honesty and communication. It’s gotta be your best friend.
On having a “free pass to cheat” in a relationship:
The person that you stood up and you said ‘for better, for worse, sickness and in health, richer or poorer’ you took those vows in front of the universe. If you don’t live by them, then maybe you shouldn’t have taken them. And when you say ‘a pass to cheat’… see when you’re with your best friend and you say to your best friend ‘I’m having these feelings about this person, sexually and I wanna share it with you’.. when you’re best friends, you can have those open and honest conversations. Often times people cheat because of something they’re not getting. But when you have open and honest dialogue and you say we’re just human beings and all these people on the face of the earth, do you think my eyes won’t ever say ‘he’s fine’ or ‘she’s attractive’. Now if you wanna go further with it, let’s be honest enough to have those conversations. What is it about that person that you find that you wanna sleep with? Because they may give you something that I’m simply not willing to do. And if that’s the case, how can I be mad? Because I’m not gon’ do it. Should I deprive you of not having it? That’s when the relationship is real real.
On the world getting worse in light of Paris and other terrorists attacks:
Remember in the very beginning when I said that if people just allow people to be who they are? We’re going through all of these things in the world right now simply because there’s one human being saying ‘I don’t agree with the way you think, the way you love, the way you feel, so I wanna kill you’. To say it’s getting worse, I don’t know that it’s getting worse, I think we’ve always been in these state of affairs. When you go back in time, there’s always been war, there’s always been ‘because you believe this and I believe that’ we gotta fight, because ‘you looked this way and I looked this way’ we gotta fight, this is nothing new. It’s just we’re able to get it instantly now. It’s about acceptance.
