PLOT SUMMARY: The focus is on Troy and Crystal’s engagement to get married and the perils of life that we have to endure along the way! Troy is determined to get married to Crystal, but his views on God and marriage are at a crossroads making him indecisive about his relationship with Crystal. Crystal is devoted to Troy but not his new ways of thinking in regards to their relationship. With the help of Pastor Reid and his marriage counseling, he hopes he can help the two become as one without them getting in their own ways.
Deja supports Crystal in every which way possible, and when she decides to leave Troy, Deja offers her house as a short term solution. Kendrick, Deja’s cousin, uses this opportunity to make a case for Crystal to move on and find a new man. While Troy is heartbroken with Crystal’s decision to leave, Teresa sees this as an opportunity to make her move on Troy. Naomi, Troy’s sister encourages him in the faith and tries to support her brother as much as possible without interfering with lessons he is going to have to learn through experience.
Through it all, Troy and Crystal trust God and listen to Pastor Reid’s counseling advice. With the help of their supportive and comical friends and family Deja, Dre, and Naomi they see the good in their relationship and the importance of God guiding them every step of the way.
