Although he says he has mostly been privy just to what's shared in the media, Essence's "modern-day matchmaker," Paul Carrick Brunson, was able to come up with eight things he admires about the celebrity couple's relationship.

They Got Married On Their Schedule

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.

They Still Date

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.

Their PDA Is On Point

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!
