An actress and sports channel producer, LaTanya Richardson Jackson has her own female perspective on marriage. Talking to Essense, she opened up about their staying together for nearly four decades, and gave a few pieces of advice to married women. One of them is working, even while having a baby, because this is what makes you lifted.

When it comes to arguments and misunderstandings, it’s the best to let both cool off and never let the emotions be in charge of you:

I’d be like this, ‘OK good night, I love you. I love you.' And I’d go to sleep.

LaTanya continued, with a smile, saying that you have to forget a lot, and even pretend to have a kind of amnesia.

She added:

Men, they are different, they’re cut from a different cloth.

The woman credits faith in God for helping them in the most difficult times:

You have to have a big heart and the Lord. You can’t do this without the Lord. You’re going to have to turn to somebody, something.
