The relationship between T.I. and his wife, Tiny Harris, is as good as ever, and while it has been pretty evident that the two make excellent partners in life, not just lovers, there is apparently much more to that than most of their fans are guessing.
Tiny has recently decided to open up about her love life — both past and current — and has admitted that she is looking for security above everything else when entering in a relationship.
Love is apparently a secondary priority for Tiny, and she is perfectly aware of that fact for herself and is okay with it too.
She explained: “I think it was more so about love back in the day because they had a lot of things to fight against. If we’re speaking about my mother and my father, they were fighting against racial issues. In the ’60s, they had difficulties. He was getting locked up because he’s riding with a white woman and so on and so on. But I think it’s changed a little bit now.”
Tiny added: “I’m going to tell you, and I’ll never forget that when I was about 15, 16 years old, Aunt Joyce, Kandi’s momma, told me do not marry for love. Marry for security. I didn’t understand that at the time.”
T.I. shared: “So you want a man that don’t nobody want but you?”
Tiny revealed: “Yeah, I mean. Kind of. I’m lying, but it sounds good. It sounds like the easy road. It sounds like a healthy life for a woman. Happy.”
In response, T.I. said: “Boring. It sounds boring. Don’t no woman want no man that only she wants? Don’t nobody want that? You want people that are desirable, and you know what I’m saying?”
T.I.P. said: “Only way that’s going to work is if you don’t know nobody else wants him. If you desire this man, you want to feel like, ‘He could be anywhere else, he wants to be with anybody, but he chooses to be with me.’ That’s what everybody wants.”
Tiny and T.I. have managed to build a great marriage together, and they have supported each other strongly through various periods in their lives.
It is obvious that they know what they are looking for in a relationship, and both have been able to bring that to the table for the other.
And according to Tiny, it was someone close to her that set her on the right path early on in her life and opened her eyes to the importance of looking for a man who can provide a stable life for her.
It looks like she has been taught well too because she is obviously very happy with her choice to marry T.I., and the rapper seems to share the same sentiments as well.
Hopefully, their relationship continues to move in a good direction in the future, as well.
Moreover, so far, we have no indications of anything other than that.
