    Where’s Cuba Gooding Jr. and his wife?

  • Irene

    Cuba??? Hence the term “black” he’s married to a white woman.. Nothing saying something is wrong with it but it doesnt fit for this post

    • Gray

      That’s the point. He’s still black and he’s married. So is this a question of isolation and ignorance?

  • Joslene

    Where’s justine and run????

  • lala

    I could have sworn Magic and his wife divorced? Oh wait never mind that was Michael and his wife. My bad. :-D

  • calidreamn

    Yeah I thought Magic and cookie broke up too…… Kenny and chante couldve been part of the list if they couldve stuck it out a couple more weeks, smh……… What bout kirk franklin and his wife?

  • MissJackieM

    I absolutely love seeing our people staying commited to one another and their families for the long haul. Much respect to all the couples !!!

  • SoAmazing

    This post just goes to show that marriage really does mean more then just signing a piece of paper all of these lovely folks makes black love so beautiful….I pray to have a lasting marriage such as those celebs mentioned in the post!

  • kenya

    Thank you Damien. I have now idea why I thought she was dead. I thought I read that somewhere. But I still feel they could have put their picture up. Their marriage lasted a long time and is a inspiration to others that strive for longevity.

    None of these couples are interracial. I don’t think they were isolating nor are they ignorant to the fact Cuba has had a long marriage. I think the intention was to highlight black couples and they are simply not a black couple…No harm in that in fact its beautiful and refreshing to see black couples thriving I can identify with them much more than an interracial couples. Call. Me ignorant or racist but a black couple made me! Big ups to all happily married black couples making those beautiful black babies and breaking down stereotypes
