The-Dream to Pen Relationship Book

The producer says he'd like to get married again, but adds that marriage changes people.

Try not to fall off your chair for this one, but word is that The-Dream is working on a relationship book to expound all his functional knowledge with the rest of us. The producer, who's been divorced twice, said he wants to discuss how to "get the milk without the cow." In other words, how to get the cookie, as Steve Harvey calls it, without buying the dough.

"I have this book I'm writing about how, as blessed as I am, how I could have a girlfriend; I could have kids with her, chill out and that's my girl," he told Sister 2 Sister. "We woo-woo-woo, whatever it is, and get all of the same things that you get when you're married to someone. It probably didn't work years go, but why get married? What do they say? 'Get the milk without the cow.'"

Yes, that sounds like a best-seller right there. The-Dream said that he would like to get married again, or at least likes the idea of it, but then added that exchanging vows changes people.

"But that word 'marriage' changes who you are. Immediately you're not that forgiving and it's just like, 'We fought all the time when we were boyfriend and girlfriend and we never broke up.' You have a good fight when you're married and it's like, 'I'm out of here. Peace!' It's like it gets more fragile when it's supposed to be stronger."

It sounds like he could use a little more living, learning and succeeding before touting himself as an expert in the field. Would you be interested in hearing what The-Dream has to say about relationships? Sound off in the comments.
