R&B and television vet Marques Houston recently opened up about the lady in his life. The former Word Up! Magazine cover star married Miya Houston on August 24th, 2020, despite the pairs 19 year age difference. He discussed their union with TVOne’s Uncensored.
Marques Houston is currently 41 years old. In the recent episode of Uncensored, he discusses how he connected with his wife when she was only 17 and how their union blossomed. According to Houston, a mutual friend connected him to his lady. “Me and my wife’s situation is a little different. When I met my wife, she was 17, so we had no real conversation or connection till she was of age. And people don’t understand it, and I got a lot of backlash for marrying someone that was 19.”
Houston admits that when he finally gave Miya a chance, he realized that she was a lot like him. “for one, we had a spiritual connection. We both love god. We both love Jehovah.” He said they also connected through music. “Her spirit, her kindness, her heart, reminds me a lot of her mom.”
Not everyone in the comments was convinced that Marques Houston was telling the truth and believed he was interacting with his wife before she hit legal age.
“You can tell he lying the man breathing harder and harder to tell this story,” said one fan. Another said, “Why is R. Kelly the only one in jail 🤔.” Do you think Houston is telling the truth about waiting till Miya was 18?
