Michael B. Jordan has garnered the spotlight due to the critical and poignant roles he chooses to play. The actor is definitely easy on the eyes and that does not hurt when it comes to star power.
Jordan recently revealed what he seeks in an ideal partner and we are even more hooked. He and others drive the point that superficial entities such as appearance are not the top reasons when considering a significant other.
Jordan explained, “The eyes, eyes are important to me. You can tell a lot. The eyes–they don’t tell lies.” “The neck, the hands.” He continued, “There’s something about a woman’s hands. It’s important. Of course, I’m interested in the lips and body. [But] I’m not just looking for looks, I’m into the whole person. Also her smell, how the woman smells. It’s crucial.”
Retired NBA player Grant Hill expressed his ideas on marriage,
“Marriage is not deep. It isn’t complicated, you’re just trying to make it.” Hill further explained, “Every day you are just saying to each other, ‘we are going to work it out, we are going get through it together,’ [because] it’s not about looking into each other’s eyes, it’s about looking in the same direction. So, there’s no secret.”
Boris Kodjoe and his wife Nicole Ari Parker celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary last week. Kodjoe took to Instagram to define what their marriage means to him:
“#AnotherThirteen 13 is a number that all humans share,” he began. “There are 13 major joints in our body, 13 degrees the moon travels across the sky, and 13 ways I have been loving you.. ..as a man..as a friend..as the father of your children..as a fan of your craft..as an artist to his muse..as a partner..as a world traveling companion..as an admirer of your beauty..as a supporter of your dreams..as a confidant..as a guardian of your trust..as your secret place of comfort..and as a dancer with your heart and soul.”
NFL star Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union have had the quite the journey leading up to their marriage. Wade is nine years younger than Union, was in the middle of a messy divorce when the pair met and Wade fathered a child with an old friend before he and Union wed. Even after they tied the knot, they faced challenges – several miscarriages. Nonetheless, the couple is going strong. Wade explained in 2013 why the two married despite the odds,
“At the end of the day, we came back together and said, ‘Listen, we want to continue this. We want to continue to get better each day,” “She’s been with me and I’ve been with her all summer long. We’re going strong now.”
“I remember being caught in your eyes, and deciding I would never leave. I remember watching you dance the Bachata, and thinking I want to be the man you dance with. I remember sitting next to you at the “Selma” premiere, I was so nervous and I wanted to impress you. I remember when you looked me in the eyes and told me what I’d waited my whole life to hear, “I’m ready”. God remains the tether that binds us together. Two years feels like two seconds for me with you. I’m caught in your love, and I’ll never, ever leave. Happy Anniversary My Blessed Queen. I love you now and forever!”
Love is a commitment that takes the effort of both parties involved. The above mentioned solidify this fact precisely.
