David Adefeso made sure Tamar Braxton will never have any in-law problems.
Tamar Braxton celebrated her first Thanksgiving as a family with her boyfriend David Adefeso, her son Logan Herbert, and David's family - an important step.
As far as David is concerned, Tamar is the love of his life, and he told his family that if they didn't accept her, they would lose him...
David urged men to stand up for the women they love, and make them the #1 priority in their lives
NO IN-LAW PROBLEMS FOR TAMAR BRAXTON
One issue Tamar will not be facing in her relationship with David is in-law problems of any kind.
" As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives"
DAVID ADEFESO STICKS UP FOR HIS LOVE
"I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her….or they risk losing me completely."
ADEFESO FAMILY WELCOMES TAMAR BRAXTON
But David needn't have feared. When he took Tamar to Nigeria to his mother's birthday, the entire family fell in love with the R&B singer - including his mom and 3 sisters - and welcomed her with open arms.

Yesterday my @tamarbraxton , Beans and I hosted our first thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80 year old mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her and she loves them right back. During dessert my mom stood up to speak and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her....or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do. Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home! #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily ❤️❤️❤️❤️
DAVID ADFESO URGES MEN TO STAND UP FOR THEIR WOMEN
Tamar is one lucky girl. David's mother treats her like a 4th daughter and pampers Logan as if he were her 13th grandchild.
But Tamar's boo had a word to say to other men - especially Black men.
David urged men to stand up for the women they love, and make them the #1 priority in their lives - over their families, mothers and even themselves.
WOW! No wonder Tamar has just blossomed since David came into her life.
We did say Tamar was lucky...
TAMAR BRAXTON HINTS AT WEDDING PLANS
When Tamar Braxton and David Adefeso celebrated their first anniversary, the singer posted an adorable photo and a sweet message on Instagram.
Tamar reminisced about their first meeting at a birthday dinner and thanked David for the love and happiness he has brought into her life. Tamar stole a line from Beyoncé and wrote:
"So I guess now, If u like it then [you] should go and put a ring on it."
That's not a very subtle hint, and we think David got the message because right after that he took Tamar to Nigeria to meet his mother. Now, all he needs is the ring.
