Celebrity Couples Making It Last…Forever

couple walking on a beach(SLIDE)(BlackDoctor.org) — What’s the magic recipe for a successful marriage that lasts? Many of us have heard that it CAN happen to any relationship, but all we need to do is glance at those magazines in the grocery check-out aisles to know that, more often than not, many couples have not figured out what those ingredients are.

Which, perhaps, is the reason why, when we do see couples engaged in an emotionally healthy and positive relationship, it warms our hearts and gives us hope that, if they can do it, maybe the rest of us can, too.

Here are just some of the inspiring examples of celebrity Black couples who are making their marriages last…and last…and last…
