I read somewhere that Jada and Will have an “open” relationship and that it doesn’t bother them if the other one has sex with someone else. Anyone know if there’s any validity to that? 🙁

I agree that Barack and Michelle are AMAZING.

Yeah I read that too about Will and Jada.  Will has sex with other women whenever he feels like it.  Didn’t he say that himself on some talk show or something?

Maybe that’s where I saw it… I remember it was from a reputable source, but it was a long time ago. That bummed me out because they do seem to have such an awesome family.

I really like your idea of naming tables after married couples you admire, but I might choose couples I know personally. Certainly there are celebrity marriages that are great and should be looked up to, but ultimately, there’s only so much we can really know about these relationships and why they work. Also, I think that many of the more successful ones are probably characterized by privacy, so we wouldn’t necessarily know as much about them.

But if there are couples you and your groom know personally and look up to–parents, family members, friends, etc.–I think it would be really amazing to recognize them at your wedding by naming tables after them. You could even include things like their wedding date, how long they’ve been married, a picture from their wedding, and a piece of advice they have for you and your groom. What a great way to honor these marriages and any role they have in getting your own marriage off to a great start!

What about Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King?

@T.R.Bride: I love this!! You could even do a combo of personal couples you know as well as celebrity couples.

@MissHobbit: I thought he was not the greatest example of fidelity? Admittedly I don’t really know the history, I just remember that from the Malcolm X movie.

@katieebee: They’re not married but I keep thinking of Oprah and Stedman as well.

Will and Jada do have an open marriage, but they just don’t sleep with whoever whenever they want. They go to each other and talk about it to make sure it’s true. Will said if he didn’t go to Jada first, then it would be cheating. 
They are said to have one of the longest celebrity marriages right now. I think they are at 11 years? 

Martin and Corretta is a good one. Beyonce and Jay-Z…even though it hasn’t been that long since they were married.
