David and Tamela Mann have been married for thirty years, but the singers, actors, and entrepreneurs are just as, if not more than, happily in love as they were in the early days of their relationship. The couple relates the story of their first encounters as teenagers, the importance of communication, and how they've been able to keep that spark burning through all these years.
The Manns have delighted and inspired audiences through music and a string of plays and movies, as well as several television series: Meet the Browns, The Manns, and Mann & Wife. In Us Against the World they reveal their often hilarious and sometimes controversial interactions with each other as well as their blended family of five grown children and ten grandchildren, and how these relationships enrich their lives. Given their recording careers, touring, filming, and managing an outrageous family, the Manns share with readers the day-to-day challenges, successes, and joys that happen behind the scenes.
