Tamera Mowry talks marriage and motherhood and warns single women not to be like Rihanna. Even before she landed her gig as a panelist on new talk show “The Real,” Tamera Mowry-Housley has never been afraid to serve up her opinion on various topics and events, even if it does ruffle some people’s feathers. And she is just as open when it comes to her marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley. In addition to revealing that she lost her virginity at age 29, Tamera has spoken candidly about some of the things her and Adam practiced before they made things official and she says they did not shack up or sleep together before they got married and cited their strong faith as the reason behind the decision. And now Tamera is coming with some more advice for all the single women out there who are looking to get married and start a family. During her interview with CocoaFab, Tamera Mowry-Housley listed off what she feels are the top six ways for a woman to be a good girl in both marriage and motherhood.
And she started off her list with these three ways:
1. Don’t be rachet. Be refined.
“Like my grandmother always said, ‘dare to be different’,” says Tamera. While it’s popular these days to be the Rihanna to his Chris (okay, sans the abuse fiasco), consider being different from all of the overly sexy, turnt up girls. Guys want someone who stands out from the crowd. Remember, there’s a HUGE difference between wifey and wife! Don’t get it twisted.
2. Practice doesn’t make perfect when it comes to s*x
“If you start having s*x at such a young age, by the time you’re in your 30s and 40s, it’s old. And you’re trying many different ways to keep it new,” says Tamera. “I wanted to experience all of that once I got married and living with my husband.” Perhaps trying all of the kama sutra positions with your jumpoffs and boyfriends isn’t the best thing. After all, that will leave nothing new to explore for your husband.
3. Shacking up may be a recipe for disaster.
“I’m also conservative about relationships like living together before you’re married. We just spoke about that and I don’t think you should. I didn’t want to live with my boyfriend because I wanted to get married to experience that. All the other girls, except for Jeannie, wanted to know what they were getting before they got married. My position is that I’m jumping into this thing on faith,” says Tamera says of debating the topic on The Real. “Statistics show that if you live with your husband before you’re married, divorce rates are higher.” Cohabitating before marriage may also make the goal of marriage less important because you’re already playing house. You know the saying about the cow and the free milk… right!
