Mariah and Nick on love and marriage:

It was early on when I found out how spiritual she was, and we had conversations about kids and how to live life. For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I’ve always wanted. –Nick Cannon

Having babies definitely strengthened our bond because all the love that you have for each other is manifested into these two incredible beings. –Mariah Carey

Lala and Melo on their relationship:





There were people coming in and out of my life, and I didn’t really know whom to trust. She was one of the people who stood by my side through thick and thick. Even to this day, she’s always right there. –Carmelo Anthony

We knew no matter what, we wanted each other. We needed [to be] in each other’s life, and that’s what’s been able to sustain this relationship all those years. –La La Anthony

David and Tamela on how they maintain the passion in their relationship:





Stay in love because when you’re in love, it covers a multitude of fault. Our relationship wasn’t based on good sex or having a lot of money. It was based on just straight friendship. That’s what has kept us. –David Mann

I pray and ask God to keep my heart and my eyes burning only for David Mann. I speak his name in my prayers, because I want the desire to stay, so when he touches me, I get chills. –Tamela Mann
