I don't usually judge other peoples relationships. But when it comes to Chris Brown and Rihanna, I have throw in my two sense. There have been numerous reports that the two may be back on again. For those of you who may be new to this story, let me fill you in. The R&B singers made headlines as a result of a physical altercation that left Rihanna badly brused on the eve of the Grammys in 2009. According to a NY Daily News article, they were recently spotted sneaking off into NYC club bathroom together. The songstress even admitted to still being in love with Brown in a recent Oprah interview.
As a girl who's been in her situation, I completely understand how hard it is to walk away. But, I also feel that these love birds are going down the wrong path. Many may disagree with me and that's ok. However I strongly believe that as a woman, Rihanna is setting a bad example. There are other young girls who may be going through similar situations and I feel that Rihanna is basically saying it's ok to go back to the guy who beat you. Despite my distaste, I do feel sorry for the both of them.
Brown stated in his Larry King interview that he witnessed abuse inside the home as a child. Rihanna also admitted to growing up seeing her mom being hit by her dad. The one common denominator is that they both witnessed abuse as kids, and that's sad. A healthy relationship begins at home and I strongly believe that it starts with the parents.
I am so thankful that my hubby and I have a healthy relationship. I can't front though. There are times when we argue. But, it's normal to have disagreements. The important thing is that we work through them for our family's sake. Our daughter looks up to us.
We plan to have an open dialogue with her, especially when it comes to subject matters like this. Princess has a while before she starts dating. But when she does, we're gonna teach her that no one has the right to put their hands on her. If they do, there will be consequences.
I was able to walk away. I hope both Rihanna and Chris Brown can one day do the same.
Do you think a Chris Brown and Rhianna reconciliation sets a bad example for our youth? Do you think that she should just forgive and forget?
