“Dwyane Wade is offering to pay only some of what he owes me if I sign an agreement never again to discuss what happened in our marriage or with our children. I refuse,” she told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I finally told Carr I just wanted to end the case and keep my freedom and my voice. I told him I didn’t want anything from Dwyane. The judge demanded the trial continue. I couldn’t believe it.”

And she never passes up an opportunity to take a public dig at Wade.

So for many black women, who are getting older, who meet men they may want to marry, is it worth it to get serious about a man with a child – or children?

I’m just asking the question. There are many relationships that are working nicely with stepmothers across America – and there are many that are absolute hell.

I am not passing judgment on Wade or Union. I’m simply suggesting that as black women get older, there’s a greater chance of meeting a black man with a child from a previous marriage or relationship.

For some black women, dating a man with a child – or children – could be a deal-breaker in a new relationship.

Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union seems to have moved past the baby-mama drama. She and Wade spent last week in the Bahamas partying with friends.

What do you think?
