Modern Day Matchmaker Paul Carrick Brunson says Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s love story can be an inspiration to all couples. Here are his eight reasons why.
Every couple that dates receives pressure from family and/or friends to tie the knot, but being a celebrity exacerbates the situation. It was brilliant how they never addressed marriage in the public and jumped the broom how and when they wanted.
I once read that less than one third of married couples go on dates. I love that throughout their marriage, you see them spending time in romantic settings just one-on-one.
I’m not one for over-the-top public displays of affection and these two nail it perfectly. They also cover a wide variety from holding hands, to snuggling, to mentions of each other in lyrics. Nicely done!
Hearing how they both took sabbaticals from work to parent, reading everything they collectively say about their desire to be great parents, all gives me hope that we’re seeing the emergence of strong parental figures.
Ever listen to either of them in an interview when the topic of their marriage comes up? They make responses short and keep it moving. This I love! No one should be brought into your relationship other than a professional, let alone a few million fans, critics and naysayers.
If Jay Z is performing at an important concert across the world, you best believe Beyoncé is there. If Beyoncé is working on an important song in the studio, you know Jay is there, too. These two understand it takes unselfishness and equitable upliftment for a marriage to succeed.
Even before they were married, we had seen numerous musical collaborations and now to see they have moved into being business partners underscores that they have an advanced level of communication and understand it takes teamwork to make the dream work.
Bottom line, no matter how you analyze it (money, fans, record sales, etc), Jay Z and Beyoncé have achieved more together than they did individually. This is ultimately a testament to their understanding that in order to be successful in a relationship, it’s about interdependence, not independence or dependence.
