Gabrielle Union divorced her ex-hubby Chris Howard in 2006, and she actually thinks it's taught her a lot about relationships.
She's taking the lessons she learned from her divorce and is now applying them to her relationship with Dwyane Wade.
"What you learn from divorce is you have to be incredibly honest, about what you want, what you need, and what your expectations are. As women, we're sort of taught to go along, to get along, not cause any ruffles… but yeah, that got me divorced."
When asked just how serious her relationship with Wade was, she responded:
"It's serious… -ly awesome. We're taking our time!"
She said they each rushed into their first marriages, and added:
"Now we're like, let's take our time. If the goal is forever, what are we rushing for?"
So they're taking things slow. Seems like they really want it to work out.
Good for them!
Maybe she's learned from other celebs that diving headfirst into marriage with an NBA player doesn't always work out.
