Angela Bassett & Courtney B. Vance: “God Brought Us Together”
One can hardly believe that it’s been 22 years since the Hollywood power couple tied the knot. With the divorce rate in upwards of 50% in the United States, this loving couple does what it takes to keep it together. No one knows this better than Courtney B. Vance, as he says it was harder to ask Angela if she liked him than it was to ask her to marry him.
The college sweethearts met while students at the Yale School of Drama. In the beginning, they weren’t lovers, just friends, as they recall, “the best of friends.” For nearly 14 years they ran in the same collegiate circle and their bond grew deeper and eventually blossomed into a love that neither of them could deny.
