What You Do to Get ’Em, You Better Do to Keep ’Em is taken from a black woman’s perspective in relation to holding on to a good man or a loving relationship. It is a nonfictional account of an interracial couple’s marriage. Telling this real-life story was prompted by the most painful period in the White-Black marriage. However, it details some of the bumps and bruises, as well as the love and good times of their first five years together. During Zye’Riah’s years in the dating scene, she’d hear the advice of some older women say, “Honey, what you do to get ’em, you gotta do to keep ’em.” Yet in her house, “Love conquers all” were the words she chose to “do” so that she could keep ’em.
