Is Polygamy Similar To Pimping?
We ask our special guests, relationship counselors, and polygamous couple, HASAN and NAAILA CLAY is the new age POLYGAMY a form of PIMPING or can they respect it as a potential solution for some of the problems we see in MARRIAGES as well as the overall BLACK COMMUNITY?. However, versus the traditional form of POLYGAMY where the man provides for both women in two separate homes, the modern era has introduced three adults (one man with two women) each with their own income coming together in one home. The modern form of POLYGAMY is often offered as a solution for a man's so-called nature not to remain MONOGAMOUS, and a solution for SINGLE MOTHERS raising children without the father’s involvement. We also ask about the advantages and the disadvantages of POLYGAMOUS relationships whether traditional or modern? MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the questions America's afraid to ask.

What Do Women Bring To The Table?
Special Guests, Youtubers, FRANK RIVERS, View From The Man Cave and MARK TODD, Black Men & Cigars Podcast drop by to discuss the concept of WHAT WOMEN BRING TO THE TABLE in a relationship. In the past the question was typically directed toward men, since men were expected to be the breadwinners and full time STAY-AT-HOME WIVES were commonplace. Today full time STAY-AT-HOME WIVES only make up 9% of married couples in the U.S. So, are women today expected to bring finances to a relationship? For some men, finances are not a concern, so in that case what do they expect women to bring to table? Does a HIGH-INCOME WOMAN have different expectations for what she should she bring to the table, or does she figuratively reverse the role and ask the man what does he bring to the table?
