As you may know, the couple started their online program during the pandemic, and it details their exciting life events without showing a dull moment.
Conversing with the show host, they had a lot to say about their marriage experience and the value of therapy in marriage and individual lives.
Raven-Symoné And Miranda Pearman-Maday Still Feel Surreal About Their Marital Union
The presenter recalled the couple’s wedding ceremony in June 2020 and wondered if they still felt like newlyweds. Symoné and Maday admitted that they were still surprised they got married.
The social media expert further explained that when she first met her wife, she knew instantly that that was her person.
However, they faced several challenges that led to a brief break and later got back together, leading to their marital union, which was like a dream.
Hall wanted to know when the pair first met, and Symoné spoke up, saying they met at a karaoke bar in Los Angeles about a week before she moved to New York to start “The View.”
At the time, the “That’s So Raven” star asked her sweetheart to move in with her in the new city, but Maday was unsure as they had just known each other for a short time.
Symoné ended up convincing her and got her a one-way ticket. The social media manager remained uncertain as she packed just one suitcase for New York, but she also got an apartment in the same building as her lover.
It was quite a journey for the celebs, but their relationship worked, and they were delighted to be a married couple.
The two further talked about the actress’s feature on the daytime talk show “The View” and how she associated it with her relationship.
She had always kept her life private and only promoted her acting roles, but when she and Maday got involved, the media enthusiast created a “safe space” for her, which she was still getting used to.
Hall then asked if they attended couples’ therapy which Symoné humorously replied with “Every Saturday.” She loved therapy and confessed that she “held everything in” until the counseling period.
The lovebirds never missed therapy, and the “Raven’s Home” star explained the goal of the weekly ritual. She said, “The reason we like to go to therapy is preventative. We like to make sure we’re our new foundation.”
“We’re two years in,” Symoné continued, “We have a lot to learn about marriage, and we’re not trying to promote anything like we know what’s up cause we’re brand new. But therapy helps to set a foundation that’s really positive.”
Therapy indeed helped the couple with communication, in the sense of communicating with themselves individually and then opening up to each other after identifying personal challenges.
The songstress further talked about her first experience with therapy which began when she was eighteen. At the time, she told her mother she wanted to go to therapy due to some mental instability she was experiencing.
In several communities, people tend to believe such treatment was for those who had issues. Still, Symoné felt otherwise as she stated that it needed to be part of everyone’s life because of its effectiveness.
The conversation carried on to other fascinating topics, including Maday’s honest conversations with her spouse, the 36-year-old’s season 5 of “Raven’s Home,” and more.
