Loni Love has very strong views on love and marriage, and what is - and isn't - a husband.
Nowadays most relationships seem to "live" in a state of limbo where couples love together, live together, sometimes even have children together, but don't get married.
And Loni Love thinks saying that "I do" is a big deal, a gamechanger, and should be acknowledged as such.
"Someone texted me..”come to my event and bring your hubby”... I texted back “I don’t have a hubby. I have a boyfriend”.. some of y’all get yo boyfriends mixed up with what a hubby is.. I don’t.. that’s a different level ...." Loni Love
The whole discussion started when Loni received an invitation to an event from a friend who told her to bring her "hubby."
Now Loni, who is happily dating actor and businessman James Walsh objected to the term "hubby," and went on to explain the difference between husbands and boyfriends for those who hadn't gotten it yet.
Marriage is not a guarantee of "forever love," but it is a serious, publicly assumed social, spiritual and emotional commitment
For Loni, the "hubby" trap is that millennials will move in together, and invest themselves emotionally and financially in what is in reality, not a true commitment. And when things come to an end, the results can be disastrous.
Of course, Loni admits, marriage is not a guarantee of "forever love," but it is a serious, publicly assumed social, spiritual and emotional commitment. And legal marriage means that those financial investments and sacrifices are safeguarded by law.
Loni and James seem to be happy as clams in high-tide dating and having a great time together.
Is "The Real" host ready to take another plunge into marriage? She's keeping mum about whether or not she and her boyfriend are considering taking things to the next level, but she was very excited when her friend Kim Bailey and Mike Hill got engaged recently.
How about those wedding bells, Loni?
In a recent discussion between the ladies on "The Real" Loni Love dodged the bullet in a very sneaky way when her co-hosts asked her id she'd consider having children if things with James Welsh got serious.
“No, no, no. I probably don’t want to have kids. I probably don’t,” Loni said.
Of course, the keyword here is the "probably"...As we all know there is a huge difference between probably/maybe and definitely not/never in this life.
If James Welsh pops the question we may/probably see our lovely Loni give motherhood a try!
