These couples embody all of the beauty of #BlackLove and seeing them make it work year after year keeps us believing in love. So, should something life-altering, universe-shattering ever happen and these marriages come to an end, just know, we would never (ever!) be the same.
Will and Jada
Every time a rumor circulates that their marriage is in trouble, our hearts break just a little. Thankfully they've all been false and their love lives on, but should Will and Jada ever seperate, we will need medical assistance on standby.

Beyoncé and Jay Z
Mr. and Mrs. Carter can stay on the run and sip lemonade all they want but they better be by each other's side crazy or drunk in love forever and ever.

Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance
Courtney was right: he does have the hottest chick in the game rocking his chain and she can't ever take it off or we will never recover.

LL Cool J and Simone Smith
The ladies love cool James but none of them love him more than his wife, Simone, and that better not ever ever EVER change. We see you guys!

Duane Martin and Tisha Campbell-Martin
Twenty years into their marriage and still as happy as ever, it was just crush us to ever see them not by each other's sides.

Morris Chestnut and Pam Byse
Married for 20 years and counting, Morris and his wife's union is clearly rock solid. But, should it ever crack, our recovery process would probably take forever.

Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson

Denzel and Pauletta Washington
This is a love that has to last a lifetime. If these two ever part, you'll find us somewhere crying for the rest of eternity.
