Serena: ‘I think it’s important when you marry to be evenly yoked. Like most women, Serena Williams wants a man who’ll adore her, respect her and be faithful, but she also has another requirement for any future love interest. He must be a Jehovah’s Witness.
“I think it’s important when you marry to be evenly yoked,” said Serena, who is currently working toward becoming a member of that faith. “I’ve been studying to be a Jehovah’s Witness, so I go to Kingdom Hall,” she told S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown. “I grew up a Witness and it’s what I know and we teach things that come from the Bible.” Serena talks about relationships, faith, family, career and more in the April 2012 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
When I was little around 9-10 years old during the summer I stayed home alone. My mom had to work and we couldn’t afford summer camp or anything like that, so I had to fend for myself. My mom would call from her desk every couple of hours make sure I was ok. I had a pretty cool schedule for a 10 year old. I would watch game shows in the morning, soap operas in the afternoon and cartoons in the early evening before my mom came home.
She told me to never ever open the door for anyone, but at least once a week someone would bang at the door and it was always a Jehovah witness claiming they were coming to save me. As a 10 year old this freaked me out, so I have been scared of them ever sense, meaning I can add that to the reasons I am scared of Serena.
Recently tennis star Serena Williams sat down with Sister 2 Sister magazine to talk about what she wants in a mate. “I think it’s important when you marry to be evenly yoked,” Serena told Sister 2 Sister.
