Is a Good Man Really That Hard to Find? Not For These Celebrity Women

December 13, 2012  |  

In and out of the limelight we hear sisters complaining that a good man is hard to find. But is he really? These celebrities seem to be doing OK and you know it’s not easy to have an established relationship in Hollywood. Maybe it’s our standards that need to change because we’ve found at least 15 good men out there.

Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa

Amber Rose may have bounced around a bit before she found Wiz Khalifa, but this pair is holding it down. Wiz put a ring on it as soon as she found out Amber was having his baby and he even said that his fiance inspired his new album. They sound like a match made in hip-hop hollywood heaven.

Tiffany Evans

Tiffany Evans and Lorenzo Young

How young is too young to get married? Who’s really to say? Tiffany Evans married dancer Lorenzo Young when she was just 17. They recently had a beautiful baby girl and both parents sound excited. We don’t hear much from Lorenzo save a few Tweets. But maybe staying behind the scenes is how they stay strong.

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Beyonce has always been on grown woman business. She played her dating game close and she made it clear that you had to put a ring on it if you wanted to be down. Virtually every song Jay puts out has a Beyonce reference in it, and he seems to be all smiles whenever he steps out with her by side.

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

A lot of chicks are holding out for a picture perfect relationship. I wouldn’t have pegged Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon as a match. After all, he’s 10 years younger and she’s a lil bananas. But they make it work despite the haters. Could stressing about what other people think ruin your chances of happiness? Good thing Mariah didn’t listen.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats

Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys

Which is more important? How you got the man in the first place? Or how you hold it down once he’s yours? Maybe Swizz and Alicia realized that they found true love and went after it at all costs. Despite rumors of infidelity that still haunt the pair, he seems to have her back more than 150%.

Tamia and Grant Hill

Tamia and Grant Hill

If you want to keep going strong, you’ve got to be down for better or worse. Some relationships can’t handle the pressure of fame. But Tamia and Grant Hill beat those odds and kept it going strong through Tamia’s multiple sclerosis and the illness that threatened to end Grant’s career. If that’s not love I don’t know what is.

Boris and Nicole

Boris and Nicole Kodjoe

If the only place you can find romance is in an R&B track you may be looking in the wrong place. For their seventh anniversary, Boris Kodjoe surprised his wife Nicole with a romantic poem. Don’t ever let a man tell you that that’s not what real men do. What’s the most romantic thing your boo has ever done for you?

Denzel and Pauletta

Denzel and Pauletta Washington

Denzel and Pauletta have been together for longer than some of us have been alive. They got married back in 1983. And in 2010, Denzel said that the secret to his marriage was “Do what she tells me.” Sounds like a good — and smart — man to me.

Barack and Michelle

Michelle and Barack Obama

Michelle and Barack Obama met at the law firm where they both worked in 1989. Maybe the key to finding a good man is to put your career first after all. When you get where you want to go it’s easier to find a man on your level. When both of ya’ll are flipping burgers, money is tight and both of ya’ll wake up mad going to a job you don’t really like.

Oprah and Stedman

Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham

Some of us are willing to let a perfectly good man go because he won’t put a ring on it. But Oprah and Stedman have been together since 1986. At first Oprah wouldn’t speak much about her romance but as things have calmed down with her show, we’re seeing more and more of this couple and we like what we see.

Tiny and T.I.

Tiny and T.I.

Oprah and Stedman keep it private but T.I. and Tiny put it all out there for people to see. The pair are trying to show us all how a “real” family does it and we must say, even though it took Tip a little time to get his legal and marital act together, he’s coming through in a major way as a husband and father these days.

Omar and Keisha Epps

Omar and Keisha Epps

Omar Epps has been committed to loving Keisha for six years but it’s hard to tell because they keep to themselves and out of the spotlight. That’s a key to lasting love most of us could use a reminder on.

Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union

Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union

Dwayne and Gabrielle look happy together. But Dwayne’s first marriage ended hard. His first wife held it down while they struggled and now Dwayne is with Gabrielle. but it looks like he’s a good man to her. Plus, he’s indisputably a great father, which earns him major boo points.

Chris and Adrienne Bosh

Chris and Adrienne Bosh

Adrienne found a good man in Chris, but like many men he’s saddled with baby mama drama. Some take issue with Chris not helping out the mother of his first child, while others don’t feel it’s right to hold him accountable for his ex’s financial stability. One thing that is cut and dry is he worships the ground Adrienne walks on.

Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks

Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo

Both Jason and Jordin are young but they’ve managed to hold it down for a year and that’s a long time in Hollywood. But get this: they both just bought their own cribs on opposite coasts. Sometimes having more space apart can actually keep couples together longer.

    Swizz beatz???! Get outta here.lol

  • yeppers

    Its a pretty well known practice that most celbrirty men/women we feel are “good” (how we would know that i have NO IDEA) go for other celebrities whom they feel like either have thier own in the industry or are running with the same crowd. Its very rare that a superstar we know and love as a single man is going to find love at the local diner with the waitress. I live in LA and know the young hollywood circles and thats just not the way it works. Yes there are special cases where people have been together YEARS before the success. But a success and then wifing a regular chick/dude…yea thats a slim to none chance there. RARELY HAPPENS..

  • dhgwen

    I’m mad at that picture of Amber with Wiz though… A good black man is hard for US to find, not for THEM to find! Sorry, but they can trip and fall onto a “good” brotha (Or he transforms himself into one when they get em; i.e, Kanye, Lamar). When they see us bout to fall on em’ they smoove-move out da’ way! LOL!

    • yeppers

      lol U bout right…..Its almost amazing that some sistas can have it so together but still cant find GOOD dudes that have it together as well. The pure LOSERS that try me because they thin they can pull a good woman are laugable. Im like Bro u dont go to church and u womanize women…WHAT U THINK IM GON DO FOR U….ILL WAIT.

    • Cleo

      But Lamar is a deadbeat dad, and well kanye girl her wears leather pants and has some obvious attitude and control problems lol. Plus neither of those two are attractive.

    • IllyPhilly

      Don’t you know you can be a coked out druggie wh0re and get married to some rich Black guy as long as not too much o your African lineage shows?

    • More African than you are

      Amber Rose’s mom is from Cape Verde, an African island nation. She is “one of us.” Black folks come in all colors – stop the light skin hate.

  • Teshia

    I’m happy and proud of these couples especially Tamia & Grant they are one of my favorite hollywood couples, Will & Jada (which I’m shocked they are not on here), Keisha Epps & Omar, Barack & Michelle, and Pauletta & Denzel, and Mariah & Nick. Another one you forgot is Robin Thicke & Paula Patton you can just tell Robin is crazy about Paula.

    • moemiel

      but is paula crazy 4 robin ? lol

  • Baddvixentype

    that sure was alot of shade thrown at dwanye and gabby *side eye*

  • I know things are getting worst when Amber Rose is a model of excellence for women to follow.
    Just WOW!

  • ANTMilf

    Will and Jada?

  • Dee

    I think at least 10 years should be a baseline for you to say “they found good men”. Some of these couples are young and haven’t really gone through much. I hope they all work out. Some of these good men also have histories of cheating.

    • Patricia

      I agree. The only ones that are lasting so far is Pauletta & Denzel, President & First Lady MIchelle Obama and Grant Hill and Tamia. The rest of them I am not for sure. Who is the couple number 2? I got my money on Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, Jordin Sparks, won’t last long.

  • IllyPhilly

    A good man ain’t hard to find. Now him staying that good man is another story. Plus how is Wiz Khalifa a good man? Because he will eventually upgrade Amber Rose from Baby mama to wife?

    • Cleo

      Thank you. I mean he’s mediocre rapper who smokes weed all day…not my idea of a “good” man

    • Kaori

      As far as I know, they are engaged, so the title ‘baby mama’ doesn’t fit here.

      • IllyPhilly

        Engaged is married nowadays?

        • Kaori

          Is that what I said?

  • A few of these guys were romantically linked to other women while in their current relationships.

    Get real

    • OhNoYouDidnt

      THANK YOU! Either I need to go pull out my dictionary to understand what “good” means again. Or, someone else does.
