Been to a same-sex wedding?
BIG TINO & SWEETNESS
Tino and Sweetness
Met March 2006, Marietta,
They met on Black planet; little did Tino know, Sweetness was a text message away. Sweetness contacted Tino, after admiring her profile on Black Planet. She I in boxed her at a message saying:"Hi. I am moving to Marietta soon. Hit me up sometimes."
Tino replied via black planet inbox with her mobile number and Sweetness called about 72 hours later. They talked on the phone from April to August. They were both going through difficult situations at the time, but Tino always made it her business to stay in contact and let Sweetness know that she was thinking of her by sending her a thoughtful text message. Sweetness lived in Macon, Georgia and Tino lived in Marietta, Georgia at the time. In August of 2006, Tino invited her up for a date. Sweetness was coming to see her every weekend after that and scoping out her future home city. Then in December of 2006, they moved in together. Long story short, Tino asked Sweetness to marry her in Feb. of 2008 and they were married July 5th 2008, at the Atlanta Civic Center in a group commitment ceremony. They have a happy life of love and God. They are also raising their 3 children and getting ready to purchase their first home. They have very active lives, but still have found the time to both return to school to further their education and motivate each other. Thank you Black Planet!!! Thank you.
