Few celebrity relationships have gone through public ups and downs as intense as JAY-Z and Queen B. These two have weathered some seriously catastrophic storms, and yet their love for one another is still so apparent. Beyonce's quotes about JAY-Z make it so clear that through thick and thin, they're a power couple who's here to stay. Considering how successful they've been at building such a power-couple brand, not to mention at building their beautiful family, it's easy to see why they're in it for the long-haul.
Exactly when these two met in the flesh is up for debate, but based on a 2008 interview with Seventeen, Beyoncé told the magazine she "was 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started dating.” So that would mean their friendship got started at some point between 1999 and 2000. However, it wasn't until the release of JAY-Z's single “’03 Bonnie and Clyde” in 2002 that the rumors of their romance started spreading like wildfire. They didn't publicly confirm they were actually dating until much later. It's crazy how fast time flies, and roughly 18 years after they met, they're married with three kids and still making huge strides in their careers (which at this point have already reached legendary proportions). Throughout the course of their dynamic partnership, Beyoncé has said some pretty adorable things about her boo. Here are some of my faves.
