Editor's Letter: Black Women: Our Lovers Don’t Just Need To Be Kind, They Need To Be Our Allies

I think this is the type of Editor’s Letter I’ve always been hesitant to write. I understand that there is wide range of people that read this newsletter and as a 29-year-old who recently got married, I can understand that those who are older than me, do not need relationship advice. I also understand that many reading this may be at a point in their life where committing to someone is just not their priority. 

When people around you find out that you're getting married, it feels like everyone becomes a relationship expert. While I believe in learning from others, there can be such a thing as too much advice and the truth is unless I ask for it, it goes in one ear and out the other.
