To Devoted Audience of Theory Republic;

          What started out as a small thought to make inroads into the vast world of blogging on June 15th, 2010; has now grown into a movement, a brand, and a name of its own today. It is because of you, who are reading this now, has any of this been made possible. You have read, commented, and submitted varies pieces and articles that have been published to our site. You have added excitement and new elements to this movement, that weren't fathomed when we began. For it Theory Republic is forever grateful; for your commitment, your dedication, and you.

          So, this is a bittersweet moment in which we announce that effective on Monday, September 30th, 2013; there will no longer be any new material published on the Theory Republic site. Because you have been a very loyal audience all currently published work, will remain forever available, for you to continue to love and read. Theory Republic would also like to send a special thanks to Constance Rahming; for her counseling that helped in facilitating this decision and the next steps.

          But, we aren't going far or away by any estimate. We ask that you join us in our next chapter, A High Society. Which was launched earlier this Summer and will serve as the next stage of this journey. What can you expect from A High Society; much of the same that you came to love about Theory Republic. Interesting pieces; that were thought provoking, opinionated in some cases, accurate, and relevant to the times; just to name a few.

          You may ask why this is happening or necessary; well A High Society, in all ways symbolizes the growth that has occurred over the last three years. Because of you, it has all happened, it has all been possible. It is a sad moment, because Theory Republic has grown, has become memorable, has allowed for so many connections and relationships. But it's also exciting because of the new possibilities that will enviably blossom because of A High Society.

          To stay update with all the new news happening, or be added to the A High Society distribution list; please email us at You can also google "A High Society." Twitter, Facebook and all the other great things are in the works and will follow in the days to come. So it's not a goodbye, but definitely see you soon! - Subject Line: Subscription 
I've gotten away from what has made this blog, what it has been over the last three years. I've gotten away from the love, the appreciation, the meaning behind it all. So I'm rededicating myself to it ALL. 

  • Originally there was scheduled to be a September Writing Challenge, well because of some reconsideration, it has been moved to October. Some of the words will be changed and substituted, but it will all take place in October. 
  • The redesign of the site will be completed by the end of the month, more updates, more interaction, more Theory Republic. 
  • Between now and the October Writing Challenge there will be more content added. There will be new written piece, videos, photos, new features, and so much more. Stay tune, we're not done yet. 
To everyone that has visited and stuck with us throughout, we would truly like to thank you. Your love and dedication is graciously appreciated. We are not Theory Republic without you. So THANK YOU!!!

I wanted to wait until both couples were married to publish this piece, being that they both inspired it. I hope that they don't mind the surprise it or me borrowing some of the photos for it.

People can, will, and have said that getting married at 24, 25, or 26 is young. That you should wait, there's no need to rush, it's okay to be engaged for several years before you get married; will all be included. I can't and won't lie, I'm a believer in those sentiments. I do think that my mid 20's are for me to live, explore, and enjoy life. To have the ability to be unsure, change my mind, go about whatever at the drop of a hat and without the consultation of someone else. I'm not saying that marriage is the end of one's life, but there are things that once married must be discussed amongst two and not just self. 

But I've also been enlightened to something, that is not only beautiful, but may be inspiring for other.

It's young but not necessarily young MARRIED AND BLESSED LOVE. During the week of May 12 through May 20th 2013, I was for a moment able to see several things that simply disregard the "no need to get married young notion."

It's not that they are naive or reckless, it's because they knew that the journey they would be embarking on would be grandiose. It would be would be something beyond great. It would be love and so much more. It would be... 

God - prayed on, about, and determined to be divine. God placed them all together and in each others' lives for a reason. Chalk it up to divine intervention if you like, but you can see not only through their prayer together, that it's genuine and right for all those involved. In a paraphrase and a bit of a rewrite of Mark 10:9, what God has brought together, no man can separate.  

Life - it is too short sometimes to ask sit around and ask what if. It's easy to see that each connection is authentic. It's hasn't been built on lies, mistrust, or things deceptive. But from real conversation, genuine common bonds, things that bring two people together forever. If you have all of that and think you have time to sit around and wait then go ahead. But let us not knock or deter those who rather not wait, but take advantage of each moment and cherish it.

Love - it would be impossible and more disrespectful to try and describe the true love and bond these couples have for each other. Just know that authentic or genuine don't do them justice. You get to see through them how love is truly indescribable. But it's inspiring see the true friendship that they have amongst each other.

The consideration that goes into their thoughts and actions. It's not all in what they say, do, or how they interact. It's in their connection, it's in their spirit, it's just them. 


I sat around at the dinner table with them all one night and said to myself that it would be my hope that whenever I do get married I have something similar to what they all do. The wives have their husbands, the husbands have their wives, together they have each other, and God has them all. It's in that, that you see that despite the worries, hesitations, and us naysayers; that they'll all be okay. Come the hell and high waters they will last a lifetime. Not to prove us wrong, but because they went into their respective unions with faith and hope, an open mind, a prayed up spirit, and most of all each other. 

Congratulations to the Brandon's; Xavier and Ayebaifie (it was only right Tasha)!!!

Congratulations to the Major's; Rahqwan and Samantha!!!

May God's blessings be with you all!
