Bishop T.D. Jakes and wife Serita Jakes have made many public appearances together, but never on the cover of EBONY magazine. Now, the pair is sharing what makes their love work in a feature story for the February issue, along with couples Devon Franklin and Meagan Good and Clifford “T.I” Harris and Tameka “Tiny” Harris.
Jakes, pastor of The Potter’s House megachurch in Dallas, Texas, and his wife will be one of three couples showcasing black love on EBONY’s multiple covers scheduled to hit newsstands on Jan 4. For one of the three diverse EBONY magazine covers, Mr. and Mrs. Jakes share how God united them in love.
The bishop gave some insight about the best way to keep a marriage thriving with hard work and privacy.“Marriage requires work and expecting the unexpected. Don’t let other people design a marriage you can’t live with,” Jakes told EBONY. “Keep other people out your business. Every marriage is different.” .
