    This new social media trend that is making rounds across TikTok is about sharing transformation videos before and after marrying a black woman. The trend applauds the effects a black woman has on a white or Asian man. The videos are usually set to the tune of the hit song ‘Million Dollar Baby‘ by Tommy Richman. 

    Users argue that it is not only the aesthetics rather a black woman elevates everything in the man’s life. “For me, when I’m watching the Black Wife Effect, what I’m thinking is that everything Black women touch they elevate. And that’s not just on a partner scale, that’s on a societal scale,” one user shared on TikTok. “The fascinating thing is not that they look better, their style is better, but like you can visibly see their confidence get better. And that’s not like a physical change. That’s something of being properly cared for,” she added.
