#BLACKLOVE #Repost from @nikkioh.co – #MorrisChestnut speaks on his 20-Year Marriage to #PamByse "We’ve been fortunate and blessed enough to grow together,” Everyone is different at 28 than they were at 22 and everyone is different at 35 than they were at 28. You can either grow apart or grow together and we’ve been fortunate to grow together. I’m in Hollywood, but Hollywood is not my life, I think a lot of the times what happens is people get so engrossed in the industry and the industry is their life and their friends. Everything is the industry. A lot of times people come in the industry and they’re either up one minute then they’re down one minute. That type of instability on a number of levels is difficult for everyone. Every marriage is going to unstable at times because you have to go through everything with someone. I’ve dealt with instabilities (ups and downs) in my career but it’s never been my life. It’s just been an aspect of my life.”
