As many of you know we are about family and honoring the vows made before God. As much as I love my children, I believe the BEST God has for my family is to remain as one unit. It hurts my heart to see how the WIFE of Dwayne Wade, of the Miami Heat is talked about because she is hurting due to having to watch her husband and children parade around during the NBA Championship with THE OTHER WOMAN.
I NEED YOU ALL TO UNDERSTAND THIS!!! Gabrielle Union is THE OTHER WOMAN. Dwayne Wade has a WIFE! He took a vow to Siohvaughn Funches-Wade and the world is giving her a bad rap. She was arrested the weekend of Father’s Day after refusing to allow the couples sons to be picked up by Wade’s sister.
Dwayne Wade made the following statement:
“Once again, S.L. has used our minor children as the proverbial pawns in this contentious dissolution of marriage action. This court must take action to protect our minor children from further exposure to the present environment S.L. creates while they are in her care and preventing S.L. from exercising her parenting time in a manner that is harmful to our children.
The minor children have been subjected to great deal of drama/trauma as a result of S.L.’s conduct.”
It is amazing how we continue to label fathers as CHAMPIONS for having the movie star girlfriend, even when it involves leaving his wife who has been by his side for years, or driving a shiny Bentley, which doesn’t make you a REAL MAN. When will we realize that the TRUE CHAMPIONS are the men who honor the quotes we made to God over the Cook County court system?
Remember this Dwayne:
“I love you, Siovaughn and I know that God has ordained this love. Because of this I desire to be your husband. Together we will be vessels for His service in accordance with His plan, so that in all areas of our life Christ will have the pre-eminence. Through the pressures of the present and the uncertainties of the future, I promise to be faithful to you. I promise to love, guide, and protect you as Christ does His Church, and as long as we both are alive. According to Ephesians 5 and with His enabling power, I promise to endeavor to show to you the same kind of love as Christ showed the Church when He died for her, and to love you as a part of myself because in His sight we shall be one.”
The couple has a court date set for June 26, 2012 and I will be praying for the restoration of the family. I believe the AA community needs to see this happen in a major way and THAT will be the World Championship for my community.
I just wonder if Essence Magazine would cover this as an example of REAL BLACK LOVE. One that involves MARRIAGE!
