Synopsis[edit]

Let's Stay Together is the story of Stacy Lawrence (Nadine Ellis), a pediatrician who is engaged to Charles Whitmore (Bert Belasco), the contractor she hired to remodel her kitchen. Stacy and Charles have a fun, sexy, intense dynamic. However, six months in, some of the magic of finally finding a soul mate has worn off, and they find themselves constantly renegotiating their rules of cohabitation. In contrast, Stacy’s super-fabulous younger sister Tasha (Joyful Drake) and her husband Jamal (RonReaco Lee) act like an old married couple even though they’re only in their 20s. Tasha made a lot of mistakes in love before she found a stable, ambitious guy like Jamal so she has dedicated herself to pleasing her man and raising their six-month-old twins. Jamal considers himself lucky to have a fine, dedicated wife like Tasha even though she does bring the drama on a regular basis. Charles’ earthy younger sister Kita (Erica Hubbard), a proud employee of the DMV, is celebrating her independence by taking a break from dating while she explores all that life has to offer before she settles down.
