It’s Valentine’s Day and while some people are headed to Bath & Body Works or their local CVS to find V-Day presents, we had to take some time to recap what we’ve learned from the masters of love – the celebrity couples whose love for one another radiates off one another on the red carpet.

Essence Magazine presented the top 40 black couples that exemplify “Black Love.” These are couples who put time, energy and effort into their relationship because we all know the hard work continues even after that walk down the aisle.

The spotlight may have brought on a few hardships along the way, but their love has survived. Here are some of TheBobbyPen’s favorite black couples from the list and a little on why their black love is so beautiful.

The Obamas (FLOTUS and POTUS) are the most elegant and dignified couple that America has ever seen. This couple shows their love for one another no matter who is looking (can’t say the same for other presidents). They’ve been a power couple for 24 years.

During their 11 years of marriage fans see them do as much together as possible and that’s what makes them a power couple. They even created and hosted their own syndicated talk show called “The Boris & Nicole Show” in 2016.

Despite recent of rumors of divorce, this couple has been holding strong for 33 years. Pauletta has stood by Denzel’s side through many of his achievements so we hope this couple can hold on

This celeb couple has only been together 9 years but it feels like forever. They are such beautiful couple that spreads wisdom to couples around the world, specifically the men who think like boys and the women who have to think like a man.

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade are a fairly new couple but they are the most fun couple to watch. Why? Their friendship is what makes their romance worthy of being on this list. They even have their own special handshake.
