"I love being his wife but I'm also very intentional about staying his girlfriend" Tammy Franklin Shares her Secret to 21 Years of Marriage

What is Tammy Franklin‘s secret to 21-years of being happily married? Let Tammy give you the scoop.

Tammy loves keeping it spicy for her husband, gospel star Kirk Franklin, and she’s intentional about every move she makes.

She does so by being his “girlfriend” as well as his wife and having regular date nights with her husband. From her choice of clothing to her hairstyle, Tammy knows what makes her man smile and she shared some relationship tips on Instagram to help us understand the important necessities to a happy marriage.

I love being his wife but I’m also very intentional about staying his girlfriend! I knew he wouldn’t mind me wearing the flat sandals that I thought about wearing, but I chose to wear the wedges that I know he loves. I pay attention to what makes him smile! I share this not because I’ve always done it perfect but I grew to learn the balance. Although sometimes he gets my bonnet lol, he should also get his Boo!

      They are not trying hard to cover anything, they let people in in their struggles as well. You might want to examine why you are so worked up by two people who are happy?

    Simply put, he is a good man. You lucky. I’m about to tie the knot with a good man too. The only wahala is that he is good to everyone else and some of my fellow calabar girls know no boundaries!

    When you go through rubbish and when the marriage has lasted long you’ll start giving us “tips” when the answer is ONLY that you tolerated him and that’s why the marriage lasted long. Why are black women so fond of this, like Kirk franklin himself didn’t confess all he put her through on Twitter.

    I’m sure this is the new marriage advice Nigerian aunts will start giving us on Instagram while their husbands still cheat. Today it’s cook, tomorrow submit, weight loss, cooking, bedmatics, no sex before marriage, don’t see his friends too much, no twerking on Instagram. But their husbands are still cheating and misbehaving. We’ve heard abeg. How do you stay slim? How do you make money? That’s what we want to know Biko

      Everyone has issues in their marriage, even if it’s not cheating it could be something else. She picked what she could tolerate and stuck with it and she seems happy, it’s nobody else’s right to tell her what she should tolerate or what should make her happy. The day she sees the one she can’t tolerate, she’ll move.

      It’s always the woman’s responsibility to spice things up and make the man stay faithful. No wander married women always look stressed. Its not fair!
