Atlanta, GA (BlackNews.com) — Every year it seems as if Hollywood needs to send out a Marriage SOS. There are 99 problems in the City of Angels and divorce is definitely one. All statistics aside, couples can find a way to strengthen and or save their marriages with qualified outside expert advice. Attending or participating in a workshop, media interview, twitter chat, or Google Hangout with Jenny and Rufus Triplett, one of the few professional husband and wife teams who do just about everything together, would make you a true believer.
The couple met in the late 80’s when Rufus was singing, writing and touring with the platinum R&B group, Ready for the World. Jenny was an intern at a radio station and headed the marketing outreach team for the act. They were honored in Ebony Magazine (February 2012 Issue) as “Couple of the Year.” They have always kept it 100 percent real during their two plus decades of matrimony. The couple has survived military service, a head on collision, incarceration, raised three young men, run their own multimedia company and are celebrating 25 years of successful marriage in October. They have been featured in a wealth of TV, radio & print media as marriage tipsters, which include REDBOOK, Ladies Home Journal, The Better Show and Huff Post Live.
Their self-published co-authored book, Surviving Marriage in the 21st Century, did so well when first released in February 2013 by staying on the Amazon Best Sellers List, that it has been picked up by Motivational Press for major distribution. The book is now available for purchase in brick and mortar stores in 12 countries, including the Canadian chain Chapters Indigo. The Triplett’s have toured across the country doing book signings and marriage workshops just from the buzz that has been created by the book, and now recently their own book panels and writing seminars.
Out of all their many trials and tribulations the Triplett’s are acknowledged for their faith, perseverance and commitment. Their seemingly plain and simple approach has resonated through their marriage tips and relationship advice given to newlyweds, engaged, dating and long term couples. Surviving Marriage Tips is more than a book of general rhetoric. Co-written with the help of an app, it is a book of relatable experiences from the viewpoint of a man and woman, in their own humorous way, who committed to the institution of marriage at the young age of 21.
The Triplett’s are the owners of Dawah International, LLC, a multimedia company which manages an online community thru Prisonworld Magazine and co-host their own weekly radio show, the Prisonworld Radio Hour, which airs in podcast syndication to iTunes and tunein. Their radio show draws a global audience of over 1.2 million monthly listeners including distribution within the prison system. They have branded their marriage lifestyle into their business and have an upcoming special on the TLC Network which features the book and the Tripletts in their element of providing marriage tips.
As a husband and wife team, Rufus and Jenny readily acknowledge their individual male and female perspectives but both agree that communication is the greatest survival tip. Their multiple appearances on Huff Post Live talking about the various disagreements married couples have has been well received by the producers and viewers of the show that they are show favorites. Their appearance on “Family Court with Judge Penny” and “Dr. Phil” garnered rave reviews for their parenting philosophies. Jenny has appeared on “The Mike & Juliet Morning Show” giving some words of wisdom to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and she is also a featured blogger for the Huffington Post and prison and relationship pundit contributing to Loop21, Reuters and has provided commentary for CNN, Brides.com, Black Enterprise Magazine, MSN.com and the Los Angeles Times.
The Tripletts have several stops scheduled on their expedition to the West Coast, which includes a book signing and Marriage Talk at Zahras Books-n-Things in Inglewood, Saturday September 27 from 2pm – 4pm, press stops at Entertainment Tonight and The Insider and two focus groups for their Marriage Fragrance which is available on Amazon.
