Must Husbands And Wives Have Equal Status? Must Husbands And Wives Have Equal Status?

(ThySistas.com) I ask this question in terms of what type of car they’re driving. At first mention, it may sound silly or juvenile, but hear me out. I was with family during the Thanksgiving holiday and an interesting topic of equality in marriage arose. Let me give you some background information: My cousin recently graduated law school and is studying to take the bar exam. She drives a 2016 Honda... [Read more of this review]


It’s Just Hair, Right? It’s Just Hair, Right?

(ThySistas.com) Hair is a major issue that black women face. What to do with it is always a cause of debate. Many black women have recently joined the natural train and are ditching the creamy crack for a healthier and back-to-our-roots option. The decision to go natural is one that is met with a lot of chagrin from men. Men are, for some reason, fascinated with and drawn to long hair; not that hair... [Read more of this review]


Finding Life Amidst Death. Finding Life Amidst Death.

(ThySistas.com) Sometimes we run to a history book to tell us that yesterday was so much worse than today. If that is the case then even if we have moments of despair progress is afoot. Humanity is evolving, growing, and learning to do better everyday. We look for this narrative and hold on to it we every ounce of our being. Others will say, but no matter what happens God is in control. He will hear... [Read more of this review]

There are a few areas in life that we must balance to... [Read more of this review]


You Don’t Have a Right to Abuse. You Don’t Have a Right to Abuse.

(ThySistas.com) No one has the right to abuse another human being. No one should have to endure emotional, spiritual, cultural, gender, sexual, nor physical abuse.

(ThySistas.com) There is so much going on in our community, and in the world. There is violence, pain, and suffering on various levels, and there seems to be no ending in sight.

Ungrateful Spirits Destroy Families. Ungrateful Spirits Destroy Families.

(ThySistas.com) Gratitude is a very important part of relationships. It requires us to be thankful for the people in our life, and the sacrifices they make for us. Some make the mistake of thinking this is a kin to having things kept over one’s head. We have those that are of the mind that if something is done for them it should never be mentioned again, because if it was about being there for them... [Read more of this review]


Leave Russell Wilson & Ciara Alone. Leave Russell Wilson & Ciara Alone.

(ThySistas.com) I admit I’ve never been one for Reality TV the amount of messy drama never appealed to me. I truly believe there is an in your face, yet hidden, agenda to make black women hate each other, and to perpetuate a negative narrative between black men and women. There seems to be a constant push to accept all things dysfunctional and negative while actively ripping apart anything that is... [Read more of this review]

Marriage Can Bless or Destroy a Woman. Marriage Can Bless or Destroy a Woman.

(ThySistas.com) Many of us have heard the saying that a marriage should only include three, the spouses and God. Anymore more than these three is a crowd, and that marriage could be headed for disaster. We’ve all heard something similar to this, but can I submit that as accurate as this can be and might feel…It’s necessarily the case. No marriage survives without a community, as marriages were... [Read more of this review]
