We all know the drill. Half of all marriages end in divorce, and if you’re black, chances are you’ve been beat over the head with the idea that black folks don’t get married, and black women, well…who wants us? </sarcasm>
But most of us know the truth. We’re either the products of, been around, or been apart of healthy marriage (yes, they exist), so we know that the media only tells a very small, very skewered part of the story.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, the site BlackLoveForum decided to compile a list of the “14 Most Inspiring Black Couples.” Although you may default to Michelle and Barack; Denzel and Pauletta; or Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance, other prominent black couples are out there living and loving each other openly.
While I know some of y’all will wonder why “black love” and “why black couples,” it’s just something about seeing two people who look like you sharing a love so deep you can’t help but smile.
Who are some black couples who inspire you?
(and let’s not fight…this is a positive post, ok? cool).
