DALLAS -- Time magazine recently did an article confirming that the typical marriage success rate is 50/50. Not great odds if you ask us, but we digress. Seems like fewer people are getting married and getting divorced isn’t as taboo as it used to be.
This could easily turn the biggest optimist a little pessimistic. So, we did some research on hip-hop marriages and realized there are a lot of long-term marriages!
For example, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Even though there have been break-up rumors, homosexuality rumors, and open marriage rumors, they have been together almost 20 years.
Same with Snoop Dogg. He's been married to his high school sweetheart Shante for 19 years, and it seems to be going strong.
Then there’s LL cool J. After four kids and about 22 years of marriage, he is one of the rare hip-hop artists able to sustain a marriage. Actually, that’s a long marriage for any celebrity.
Now, LL Cool J may come close, the grand prize goes to Ice Cube. He has been married since 1995. A marriage that has lasted almost as long as his career.
Honorable mentions go to Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys, Kanye and Kim and Tiny and T.I…maybe, kinda.
