Malice Of The Clipse Has Been MARRIED For 20 YEARS?! And He's Got Some Relationship Advice....

Gene Elliott Thornton, Jr., aka Malice of the Clipse, has been out promoting his book Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked. And while doing so, he revealed that he's been married over 20 years!  Get his advice on making a marriage last inside......

You wouldn't think a rapper would be the best person to offer marriage advice, however, Malice has been in a successful marriage for the past 2 decades and has a lot to say about making it work.  The "Grindin" rapper, who turns 40 this year, did an interview with Naked With Socks On and offered this advice:

On what's most important in a relationship:

"Faith is the foundation. It’s the floor plan to my marriage. Faith and forgiveness lay the ground rules… It’s just a big part of it and I think that as… and I got to choose my words carefully, but I think, not just Black people, but in our culture and I do believe it’s culture in general… I’m just so focused on my culture that it’s just very relevant for us, but I think that many times we give up on those who we claim to love or we know we’re in relationships with.”

On avoiding divorce:

“I think the divorce rate, which I believe is 50/50 or somewhere around there… I think we give up too quick and I think we’re too quick to get rid of a person and I just think that we need to work with each other more. I think that we need to be more understanding, because I don’t think that you’re ever going to find that perfection; you know?"

On putting in work to make the relationship last:

"I think that relationships and marriage especially is about working with one another and loving each other so much that you know you’re able to forgive and be willing to compromise and work out some things and I just think that we give up too soon, so I think that faith definitely plays a part in building strong, lasting relationships and sometimes you just have to go through the fire to be purified.”

On why getting married in his 20s was a good thing:

"...A lot of people would tell me, ‘You got married too young,’ or a lot of people may say, ‘You got to go out and experience the world,’ and I don’t necessarily subscribe to that.  I think the fact that you know I did get married at a young age definitely is a plus and you know is an asset to a marriage, not that everybody should run out and get married young or whatever, but I don’t think that’s it’s a bad thing to get married at a young age. At any age it’s going to take work, you know what I’m saying? It’s going to take work, but all this ‘go out, live your life, do this, do that…’ I mean, I don’t subscribe to that. I subscribe to you find that person who is special to you, you love each other, and you want to get married and have children and that’s what you do.”

Who woulda thought?

I mean I've heard of being

I mean I've heard of being commited to a marriage and not giving up and being forgiven but what do you call being constantly humiliated in the street by your husband who doesn't claim you as his wife? We are talking about marriage people. A commitment to God to be faithful. This man thought he had AIDS!!!!! What does that tell you about how he was carrying on with women?? Yes he came out in his book only because he was so lost and the devil was haunting him so bad he ran to GOD to save his soul only for that reason because he was so gone. Its a slap in the face for him to be giving advice on a marriage. I can't tell you about the kind of women his wife is but there is a place in heaven for her I just hope her kids don't resent her for not leaving his sorry ass a long time ago.

Yeah, I'm sure dude needed

Yeah, I'm sure dude needed forgiveness CONSTANTLY! I u "love" someone why do things that u know will hurt them & damage the relationship, repeatedly. Folks think having numerous "jump offs" is cool, playa' and whatever but it actually just shows insecurity in one's self. People feeling a certain way about themselves need constant validation from others. Their others not being enough after a while. Know sh*t's not gonna be perfect or stay the same as in the beginning of a relationship but if you TRULY care abt someone, you hold them down and vice versa- stick with it (no side pieces) b/c there're a lot of things floating around out here and sh*t gets real REAL quick! Besides, good people are hard to come by and don't think that you're so dope that you cab snag a gang of 'good people". All that glitters....

He cheated. Anyone who place

He cheated. Anyone who place such a high value on 'forgiveness' in a relationship... usually has needed it at some point, for some low-down indiscretion. He references it in so many different ways throughout the interview. Wonder if forgiveness would be such a tenant if his wife had done him dirty?

Umm he had a long affair

Umm he had a long affair with someone I know very closely. He would fly her to Miami to hang tough with her. This affair spanned years, so there was no denying it as a fling! He is full of it

FINALLY....a man who knows

FINALLY....a man who knows what he's talking about. It's about planting roots and building your family up! Too often we cannot recognize our good thang (blessing) 'cause we are to involved with outside forces. We must be aware of the spiritual forces around us. The Apostle Paul tells us, "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms". (Eph. 6:12) But we are encourages by the words of the Apostle John in 1 John 4:4, "The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." I commend this man for being true to him and his family.

This man never said they

This man never said they don't have issues but they decide to communicate and work it out. It's all about compromise and respect for each other. Both parties have to want the relationship to work for each of them to see the others strengths and weaknesses and to build the other from them.

him and his brother aren't

him and his brother aren't IDENTICAL TWINS we know which on is Malice and which one is Pusha T maybe you can't tell the different but from someone who dated him can. Of course no one knew he was married until now. Yes he is saying some good stuff about marriage but to say it is a "successful marriage" I totally disagree if there is countless times that he's cheated on his wife.

He is absolutely right!! We are in a microwave society! "If you do something I do not like I am getting rid of you ASAP!" Thats the mentality and that's why marriages stay losing! Are you not made in God's, Jehovah's, Allah's whatever you call the "Most High's" image? We all make mistakes so if a person is to "good" to forgive they need to leave ALL relationships alone!!! Don't waste somebody else's time or yours!!
