Divorce seems to be the subject of discussion around the United States. Two of America’s biggest couples are said to be heading towards divorce. The announcement of POTUS Barack and his long-time friend and wife, Michelle. This would be the first time in history that a President has been divorced while in office. Though Franklin D. Roosevelt came close according to Michael Nelson in the publication he coauthored entitled, The American Presidency: Origins and Development. It seems President Obama will have made many firsts in his two terms as president.
The second divorce circulating the country is that of Miss Queen B (Beyoncé Knowles) and rapper Jay-Z. This divorce came as a surprise to many. With Queen B just dropping a recorded setting Album and the couple just having a child of their own. Though this divorce will most likely not affect neither artist’ career in the music industry it will affect their ‘flawless’ image and their two year old daughter.
Barack and Michelle Obama were named the most powerful couple in the world, with Jay-Z and Beyoncé not too far behind ranking the third most powerful couple in the world. The couple holding the spot between these two iconic marriages, being Angelina and Brad Pitt. So, congrats to them for being number one! Forbes magazine ranks their power based off position of influence and of course income. Which explains the cost of each divorce. According to the National Enquirer the Presidential divorce could cost up to One-Hundred Million dollars. Well that seemed like a lot of money for a divorce until Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s divorce was revealed as a 1 Billion dollar divorce by Life Style Magazine.
Unfortunately the reason rumored behind each divorce is unfaithfulness. Maybe Barack should’ve listen his honored white house guest and woman of soul, Aretha Franklin, and gave Michelle a little R.E.S.P.E.C.T. For Queen B, all she need was to listen to her biggest rival, Rihanna’s hit song unfaithful. In a way it was telling her story. Strange to think either couple will soon be separated but what will be more interesting is the impact such influential relationship will have.
