Are Dayna and Tabias Ready for Marriage? | Family or Fiancé | Oprah Winfrey Network

TRACY: So, welcome. Hi. TRACY: The first thing I want
to do is congratulate you guys– Thank you.
TRACY: –on your engagement. – Thank you.
– Thank you. So far, I’m the
only person who knows. – Yeah.
– Yeah. [LAUGHTER] TRACY: As you know, when
a couple gets engaged, it’s not just the two
of you getting married. It’s like two families
joining together. And that’s why we’re here,
because you guys have a sense that maybe
not everybody’s gonna be on board with this. – Yeah, true.
– That’s a possibility. Mm-hmm. TRACY: What are
the complications in this relationship? DAYNA: Time. That’s gonna be everybody’s
biggest argument. You guys are moving too fast. OK. DAYNA: And the age difference. TRACY: What’s your ages? – I’m 26.
– OK. And I’m 31. OK, so that’s pretty
significant at that age, ’cause you’re in one life stage,
and he could just be too young. DAYNA: That definitely
crossed my mind. I was once divorced, so I feel
like I’m seasoned a little bit. And I’m a mother already. He never dated a woman
that have children. TRACY: Tell me about your kids. I have a nine-year-old
boy and a five-year-old boy. So how’s it been for you to
take on the role of stepdad? That’s still coming together,
like, organically, you know? I don’t really play, like,
a father-like role yet. You have a baby
as well, right? Yes. TRACY: Tell me how that’s
been in your relationship. That’s been, like, the
biggest issue with us– TRACY: OK. –because my
daughter was conceived four months before I met Dayna. And me and her mother were
not in a relationship. We actually hooked up one time. Mm-hmm. And then she got pregnant. I can see that’s hard for you. It’s OK. Sorry. It’s all right. TABIAS: It’s OK. TRACY: What is it? It just slipped in. No, it’s something. Take your time. I feel like we have so
many things against us. TRACY: Mm. DAYNA: It’s all these
firsts happening. TRACY: Emotionally. DAYNA: Being a new dad. TRACY: Yeah. And having this
stepfather role. It’s hard. TRACY: If you’re concerned about
that, why be in a hurry to get married? We do have a lot
of things against us and, like, a lot
of people would say that it’s a rush and all this. But they are issues
that you have to tackle. And that makes your
relationship stronger. Like, you have to go
through that part. Right. TABIAS: So I’m not
scared of that aspect. OK. So I want each of you to tell me
who is coming from your family. Dayna, you go first. My mom is coming. And I have my two older
brothers, Jammell and TJ. Tabias, who’s coming
from your family? TABIAS: I have my mom coming,
my best friend, Javaughn, coming, and my cousin Davante. So your families
are on the way. Then we’re gonna have
a family meeting. Normally this would be where
they say what their issues are. But in this case,
you’re going to tell them that you’re engaged.

  1. Whoever is reading this may this be the year that you get married. No more divorce and loneliness. I speak life into every thing you touch more favor

  2. My first time being in love with someone else after having my children and a couple of days ago my son asked my man a question for the first time that he obviously knew I couldn't answer. I was blown away it made me happy though 😍 so big upps to men who have the ability to help a women who has children from previous situations 💯 not everyone is mature enough 😉 it takes time.

  3. 26, 31…give me a break ‘bout age difference. The baggage from both of their past relationship should be a focal point.
