Adrienne Banfield-Norris is opening up about her love language: physical touch.
Banfield-Norris, also known as Gammy on Facebook Watch’s 红桌谈话, shared details about her relationship with Rodney Morris at this weekend’s 5th Annual Black Love Summit 在洛杉矶. The 69-year-old mother of 贾达·萍克特·史密斯 revealed on a panel that when it comes to her husband of six years, she’s realizing that her love language can fluctuate.
“Mine is touch,” 她说. “I like the physical but I do admit that quality time is starting to take over. Especially since the distance I go say words of affirmation. I feel like the affirmations are his… 原因’ that’s what I would say, ‘I need you to touch my body.'”
The talk show host was part of a panel hosted by Cody Oliver and featuring Melanie Fiona, Angel Lakita Moore and Melissa Fredericks. She also shared her thoughts on vulnerability, her husband being the “biggest supporter” in her life and ultimately, the importance of communication in maintaining a healthy relationship.
“I would say too that when you’re talking about being creative, forget that you really have to be in communication with your partner,” Banfield-Norris shared. “而有时, sex can be the most difficult, challenging thing to talk about. ‘Cause it just feels awkward. 我的意思是, I love my husband, I feel like I can talk to him about anything. But when it comes to sex, it still seems a little awkward. And don’t forget about toys, they’re vulnerable.”
罗德尼, WHO she married in 2016, has made Banfield-Norris feel different than any husband of the past, 她说. While her former partners felt like “the boss,” Rodney helps emphasize that they’re in a “合伙” 反而. “I think what I learned about myself was that I’m good enough, I’m good enough as I am and I’ve been married, this is my fourth marriage and none of my marriage has made me feel that way,” 她说. “But Rodney makes me feel that way.”
Jada’s mother previously spoke about a past marriage that turned out to be a different kind of love than the one she wanted during a 2020 情节 红桌谈话. As she explained on the show, she faced “a lot of romantic heartbreak” 在她的生活中, and said sometimes it’s not worth fighting for a perceived notion of “true love” when there’s nowhere else to turn but divorce.
“This one particular failure in one of my marriages is that I really built up in my head that this was my one true love and I’ll never love like this again,” Banfield-Norris said. “It wasn’t a divorce that I wanted, 但在一天结束时, when you really, really look at the relationship honestly, 就像是, ‘This one’s going nowhere but to divorce.'”
