Dogg's marriage, he was having doubts about marrying his wife to be since he
could basically get any woman he wanted. It was Snoop, Pac, Suge and a few

married and that she was just a bitch like all the other ones. Pac came in
and told Snoop the importance of what he had between him and his wife, that
she wasn't just another hoe, and that he shouldn't listen to those other
guys who were just low thugs that didn't have shit. Snoop took Pac's advice
to heart, and is very glad he married his wife.
