Ciara & Russell Wilson Reveal The Key To Their Happy Marriage

Ciara

Communication is vital to most lifeforms, especially when two of those lifeforms are in a long-term, committed relationship. Divorce is hard, but sometimes creating a healthy line of communication can be even harder. Ciara and Russell Wilson recently gave us what they think is the true key to a happy marriage, and according to them, the answer is simple.

"I think the most important thing is, first of all, just loving one another, you know? For love, you'll do anything and you take care of one another. And also communication."

Two of the leading causes of divorce have to do with communication and sex, and we all know that you can't really have one without the other. On the red carpet of the ESPY's, the couple revealed that the secret to their matrimonial bliss lies in the ability to talk things out.

When the kids are out of control, your finances are misbehaving, and life seems to be erupting into a whirlwind of bullsh*t all around you, the last thing you feel like doing is sitting down and talking to your partner about everything that bothers you; but ultimately, having a healthy line of communication is the only way to push through the hardest times in their lives.

"There's always a lot of highs, and there are lows, and everything else, but communication is everything. And I think when you're able to do that and take care of your kids, it's a lot of fun."

Fun is a major understatement for Ciara and Russell's romantic life, which is filled with creative date nights and impromptu anniversary trips to Fiji. Three years after their wedding, these two are still on a never-ending honeymoon and couldn't see their lives any other way. Ciara told Entertainment Tonight:

"It was a really good time, it was very relaxing. We didn't have a long time, but it was very sweet. And I think, more than anything, [the best part was] just recognizing, 'Wow, we're three years into this thing.'"

During the interview, the couple also revealed that we may be seeing a new addition to the Wilson Clan in the future, it just won't be the near future. While Russell is ready to bring their next baby into the world as we speak, Ciara says that she's enjoying dancing with a flat belly for now:

"I love being a mom. It is by far the coolest job in life, and I do look forward to having more of those sweet little angels. And it'll happen at the perfect time."

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine.

Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
