4 Couples Who Exemplify #BlackLove In Honor Of Valentines Day

By: Kayla Pasacreta

Valentine's Day falls during Black History Month - so what better day to commemorate black love and black relationships? We've rounded up photos and fun facts of some of our favorite black couples.

Barack and Michelle

How could we not start with our forever POTUS and FLOTUS? Fun fact: the future First Couple met when Michelle was assigned to be his mentor at a Chicago law firm in the spring of 1998. Because Michelle feared a romantic relationship with him would be inappropriate, she denied his date offers for a while until she finally budged!

Will and Jada

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are OG's at this game. Read his perfect anniversary message he penned to Jada on Instagram:

20 Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here’s what I’ve learned since: Love is Like Gardening... I have learned to focus on HELPING you to BLOSSOM into what YOU want to be (into what you were born to be)... Rather than Demanding that you become what my Fragile Ego needs you to be. I’ve learned to take pleasure in Nourishing YOUR dreams... Rather than wrestling with you to Fulfill my Selfish Needs & Satiate My Insecurities, I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom. Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth.

Lebron and Savannah

Can we talk about underrated couples? Lebron and Savannah are true high school sweethearts; the pair started dating when they were 16. Fun fact: when they went to prom together, she was 5 months pregnant!

Steph and Ayesha

Another basketball couple!  Stephen and Ayesha Curry first met when they were teenagers at a Church youth group. There were no relationship sparks then, but the pair reconnected in LA a few years later. Steph was jumpstarting his professional career, but Ayesha didn't know what he did at the time. Three years after reconnecting in LA, they tied the knot!
