For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Basketball Wives LA star Laura Govan isn't thinking about marriage and she wants you to do the same, at least that's how it appears in her latest photoshoot for Black Men Magazine. While setting fire to a wedding dress, Laura talked about why marriage isn't for her and how people shouldn't be so hung up on it.
"I just don’t like the way the public perceives women who aren’t married vs. the way they perceive women that are. People place so much value on having a great wedding instead of having a great relationship; that’s why you see people get married and divorced so quickly. I’ve been with the same man for 12 years, we have four children and we’re happy. Focus on that."
Okay, totally understandable. But can Laura really act as if she didn't want to marry Gilbert? I bet she wanted marriage before he took off and left her with the kids and nothing else. Why is 12 years of being a "girlfriend" all of a sudden okay?
Laura continued on, saying the shoot was also a part of rebranding herself.
"For me burning the dress in the photo was my way of re-introducing myself; for many people my name is synonymous with “Basketball Wives” and although that’s part of me, it doesn’t define me. I just felt like “Let’s start fresh. Hi. My name is Laura Govan, ignore the BS you think you may know and get to know the real me."
