Every couple runs into issues in their marriage, but thank goodness HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that you’ve chosen to work on your problems, not separate. Here’s why you shouldn’t throw in the towel.
Beyonce and Jay Z — on the outside, you appear to be the perfect power couple — you’re both super talented, super glamorous and super rich. But appearances can be deceiving, and having big bucks and big fame doesn’t guarantee big happiness.
Beyonce & Jay Z NOT Separated — They’re Working On Marriage Problems Together
Even though it seems like you have a glamorous, loving life with your beautiful 19-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy, it’s not completely surprising to learn that your marriage is subject to stresses too. A new report in Star magazine claimed you were having marital issues to the point that you, Beyonce, were actually using your time on tour as a trial separation from Jay Z.
Fortunately, at HollywoodLife.com, we’ve since learned that you’re not thinking of a separation at all, but are actually trying to figure out how to spend more time with Jay Z.
“Their marriage is fine, they’re working on getting together more for the holidays, and nobody should expect a breakup, separation or divorce,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
The reality of the situation, according to our source, is that you, Beyonce and Jay Z, have “normal relationship problems” and that Beyonce’s long world tour is “adding stress to a marriage that is not only important to them, but an entire fan base.”
Beyonce & Jay Z — You Need To Put Your Commitment To Your Family First
My God, Beyonce and Jay Z, it’s a miracle that anyone’s marriage could survive a tour that has gone on for more than seven months and has spanned the entire world. That is unbelievably stressful! No matter how many times Jay Z must have visited you, Beyonce, that doesn’t make up for the daily intimacy that every marriage needs.
No wonder you might have had some communication issues. It’s so easy when you’re thousands of miles apart to have misunderstandings, and there’s nothing worse than fighting on the phone … long distance. But you’re both so smart, after five years of marriage — you tied the knot on April 4, 2008 — that you realize how important your commitment to your family is. After all, you have a lot of history together, you have a tremendous amount in common, and you have a beautiful daughter whose future you need to think about.
Just consider how much you’ve learned together, shared together and grown together over the years. Could any other partner understand you more than you already do each other? You appreciate each other’s enormous talents, you’ve worked well together — something most couples can’t do — you’ve both experienced the rigors and demands of careers in the music business. You appear to have similar social and political views, and you are both incredibly hard workers.
How many other romantic partners could ever be right for either one of you? Who else could you ever have such mutual understanding with?
Beyonce & Jay Z — No Marriage Is Perfect
You’ve built a strong relationship and a full life together, and you made a commitment to having a family when you decided to conceive Blue Ivy.
When you have a child, it means that you have to put momentary aggravations and disagreements with each other aside and put your daughter’s well-being ahead of all that. So it’s great that you’re working hard to make more time for each other during the upcoming holidays.
You have to realize that every marriage has its ups and downs — no marriage is perfect. And part of saying your vows means that you have to dig in for the long haul — even when you might be furious with each other for a reason that you’ll later see is ridiculous.
I know that because you’re such huge celebrities, you’re surrounded by plenty of “yes” people, and a husband or wife is never going to be a “yes” person. But you need to see beyond the easy opinions of people who you pay. Your life’s partner is much more important than any employee who might be there to empathize for the moment, but who isn’t going to be with you in the marathon of marriage.
Beyonce and Jay Z, the other thing you have to keep in mind is that if simply being together isn’t resolving your strains, there’s nothing wrong with consulting a counselor. It’s amazing what marital therapy can do to save a super stressed relationship.
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Beyonce and Jay Z stick with their marriage and work through their problems, or say to hell with it and throw in the towel? Let me know.
