I have interviewed twenty-two older Black women for the book I am writing, Thank You, Ma’am: The Truth About Love and Sex of Older Black Women. During the interviews, the participants used words and terms some may not be familiar with or may not know as much as you would like to know about these terms. So, I give you the Word of the Day!
Some terms may be basic, and some more complicated in their definition. Check out previous posts for words I gave earlier.
Word of the Day: Common Law Marriage
One of the participants discussed how life is in a Common Law Marriage. There are only a few states who honor common law marriage. Is your state on the list?
Utah and the District of Columbia
A legally recognized marriage between two people who have not purchased a marriage license or had their marriage solemnized by a ceremony.
