Music industry’s favourite and most powerful couple, Jay Z and Beyoncé, are celebrating a decade of marriage today. On this very day ten years ago, Jay and Bey tied the knot in a simple ceremony in front of their family and loved ones. The rapper and the songstress met when Beyoncé was 18.
Their first musical collaboration, ’03 Bonnie & Clyde’, marked the beginning of a productive relationship between the two musicians musically and otherwise. Beyoncé revealed to Oprah that she and her husband were friends for a year and a half before they went on their first date.
The two artistes are also notorious for being very private but have used their music to give fans a glimpse of what happens behind closed doors. The Carters decade-long legal contract has not been without a number of challenges. From dealing with miscarriages to surviving infidelity, Jay and Bey have faced their fair share of setbacks but have used it to make their relationship stronger.
