12 Power Couples That Are #couplegoals

Iconic power couples

Power couples- they have a strong aura around them that draws anyone at the first look. The bond between them and the chemistry they share is sprouting in their social, personal, and professional lives make them a powerful combination that inspires the world. But are power couples only those that display their love in public? No, not really!

In a power couple, If one person is flawed, the other person makes up for their weaknesses in strength. Together they are the epitome of what anyone would wish in the relationship. They encourage honesty in the world and make it a better place by being together.

What makes a power couple? 

What do we know about power couples? No, the right question is what do we think a power couple is?

Does the couple have a spark? Two people in love can be called power couples when they have a remarkable spark between them and most importantly, care about succeeding in their respective professions without dragging the other one behind. Rather, they walk together, personally and professionally.

Another crucial thing that can make a couple a power couple is the public perception. No one can be powerful in this world unless the public accepts them that way.

12 Power Couples that are #couplegoals

1. Sudha Murthy & Narayan Murthy

What comes to our mind when we talk about power couples? Being an Indian, it is inevitable to not think about Sudha Murthy and Narayan Murthy, one of the most impressive power couples who give us a long list of #couplegoals. 

It was Narayan Murthy who took the first step and invited Sudha to their first date. Gradually, they developed feelings for each other. One fine day, Narayan Murthy proposed to her, which wasn’t something that happened much back then. India was mostly a land of arranged marriages. But the very intellectual Sudha Murthy asked him for some time to respond to him. She shared the proposal’s details with her parents, only to meet with rejection. But three years later, everything worked out in their favor when they finally tied the knot on February 10, 1978, in Bangalore.

They suffered a lot, but together, they grew stronger not just with each other, but also in the life to become one of the historic power couples today. The couple has raised their children with simplicity, despite being the founders of Infosys, creating job opportunities for thousands! In an event, someone from the audience asked Narayan Sir, “In your younger days, when you didn’t have the financial stability you started a company like Infosys. How were you able to take the risk? At that time, Sudha Mam answered ” Yeah, he had a working wife!”

 People think that only the male can be the breadwinner of the house. But this couple has proved that gender roles can be switched as well. And keeping this ego aside is a billion-dollar idea. The billionaire couple teaches us about growing from scratch, staying grounded, and doing what we do with love. 

2. Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham

Oprah and Graham are one of the most well-known power couples in the world. They are together for more than three decades and have crossed all hurdles that came in the way of their love world. The couple met at a charity event in Chicago in 1986.

Oprah was not interested in marriage but wanted someone who could understand her needs. She didn’t want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work. Graham understood her needs and made her feel that she was worthy of being his missus. After keeping their relationship a secret for some months, they finally got engaged two years later. 

3. David and Victoria Beckham

The love birds met in early 1997 in a charity football match. Thereafter they announced their engagement after a year. It was a lovely surprise for fans, and their connection became a popular love story across the globe. They welcomed six children until the first little cute baby girl was born. They were so overwhelmed at her birth and that lucky girl completed their family. 

Victoria had a “love at first sight” moment. She found that David was pure and soft heartened. He was down to earth. She noticed that while other players stood at the bar drinking with their mates, you will find David standing aside with his family. Victoria beautifully wrote, ” He’s not even in the first team at this stage- you are the famous one”. That made David smile. Not only David but also Victoria was close to her family and they both made each other feel like a family.

4. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Yesss!! It’s going to be a blind date love story. So it was an early summer day and both of them, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met on a blind date arranged by one of their mutual friends. They gradually felt the sprouting chemistry between them and started dating. 

In 2016, they confirmed their relationship. Their love story was going so smoothly but much like other relationships, they saw hurdles in their story too. Despite the rising problems, their love for each other remained unchanged. Together, they gave birth to the princess of their life, Charlotte.

Be it fighting for one another to fighting others, including the royal family, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have changed the meaning of #couplegoals! They’re undoubtedly one of the most powerful couples today.  

5. Barack Obama and Michelle Obama

As we all know, Barack Obama was the first black president of the United States and Michelle was the first black lady of the United States. No sooner did that happen, than they become a part of the power couples for many. The two met as a mentor and student but ultimately fell in love, achieving everything they have together. 

Michelle Obama also recently opened up about their enduring marriage. “There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it’s like, you’ve got to know the feelings will be intense,” she confesses. “But that doesn’t mean you quit. And these periods can last a long time. They can last years. Being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on committing, to date them, seeing where it goes and then making it happen,” she added. 

And after three years of courtship, they wed in 1992 and have watched the family grows into four by giving birth to two cute girls, MALIA and SASHA. It may sound like just another ordinary story. But watching a politician husband strive to change history, and then to stand there with him, cheering for him, makes Michelle just the most amazing wife ever. On the other hand, watching Obama give his wife the deserved respect wherever they were seen together, keeping his family close, makes him come across as #perfect! Together, they’re among the most loved power couples among millions. 

6. Amitabh Bachhan and Jaya Bachhan

Amitabh Bachhan- we hear this name and our head plays a list of historic movies flashing before us. While Amitabh Bachhan is the most popular actor in Bollywood, his wife Jaya Bachhan is also a very brilliant actress and a politician. Their love story began when they were cast together for the movie “Ek Nazar.”  

One thing led to another, and they ultimately tied the knot in 1993, breaking the hearts of many! The couple has two children together. Despite the affair rumors and Jaya Bacchan’s seeming temper, they’ve stuck together, giving us the message, that when we want something to work, we can! 

They understand each other’s natures well by this day and stand by each other and their family through thick and thin.

7. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka is a special power couple on our list of power couples. It was April 2004 when they met and went on their first date. After sharing a lot of romantic moments and love, they proposed to one another at the place they first met, making their relationship public.

They welcomed fraternal twins to their family in October 2010. Over five years later, they announced their engagement and become an official couple. The passion for love in them proves that nothing that the world thinks, feels, or wants matters when in love. In fact, they’ve given several other gay couples the courage, but also the teaching of staying in the bounds of the law. Despite being so in love, they waited for the law to official same-sex marriage and then said their vows. 

8. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

This couple blew the romantic world with their love story in 2018. We can call them the most attractive power couples in history. In 2016 they started chatting through Twitter chat boxes. Any girl would feel lucky of getting attention from the charming Nick Jonas, but Priyanka played it cool. She didn’t think any of it was true or for real until he dropped down on his knee and proposed to her on February 26, 2017.

The couple never fails to set relationship goals for their fans. Nick and Priyanka understand each other’s culture and celebrate Indian as well as American festivals with much pomp and vigor.

Being beloved celebrities around the world, Priyanka and Nick are perfect examples of how age, culture, or distance have nothing to do with love. When in love, all that matters is love, mutual respect, and patience, it all works out beautifully in the end, much like their long wedding week that accommodated wedding ceremonies of both their cultures.

9. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

In 2000, Ellen and Portia met at a party and sparks flew. Together they saw the struggles of their career and of coming out to the world. We can call them power couples for the strength of appearing together in an award ceremony as a mark of their love. 

They made an official statement about their choice much later. Ellen, the comedy queen, and Rossi married each other in August 2018 after the Californian Law announced same-sex marriages legal. They showed their love, care, and affection in public, without the fear of judgment. Over a decade has gone by, and nothing has shaken this couple, that is indeed #CoupleGoals.  

10. Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian 

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

The beginning Serena and Alexis’ story is unique, like a movie- a famous entrepreneur and a famous tennis player meet in a hotel they were staying in in 2015.

In late May 2015, after one of Serena’s matches, they spent six hours together and didn’t know when they fell for each other amid the starry night. 

On December 10, 2016, Alexis proposed to Serena at the same place where they first met. A month later, they learned they were going to be parents to Alexis Junior. But should they be among the power couples? As much as anybody else! Alexis, as a man, is beyond explicable perfect in supporting a woman. Be it wearing a T-shirt that read “Greatest Female Athlete” or recording her interviews after her wins, to cheering her on at all her big games, Alexis has done it all. 

Most often, women are expected to sacrifice a lot from their careers after getting married and having children. But Serena Williams and Alexis are among those power couples who prove that it’s not sacrificed, it’s just being on the same page, and doing things for one another that make two people powerful together.

11. Genelia D’Souza and Riteish Deshmukh 

Genelia D'Souza and Riteish Deshmukh

Genelia D’Souza and Riteish Deshmukh are the most admirable couples in the Indian film industry. One of the most loved power couples, the duo never fails to entertain their fans with their romance and comedy on social media. 

Their love story began on the sets of “Tujhe meri Kasam.” The two have gone on record to say that love does not rise suddenly but is rather a whole process, and they felt it after that movie. We can say they didn’t date officially but they have spent a lot of time together before marriage, which was later arranged. Despite Riteish being a Hindi, rich, and from a politician family, he married someone he truly connected with, a Christian, who now is not just #couplegoals but also #parentsgoals and #familygoals. If they’re not worthy of being on the list of power couples, then who is?  

After a long relationship of nine years, they got married on February 3, 2012. God blessed them with two sons, Rian and Rahul. They have become parents of two sons but still behave like teenage lovers with the fight, the arguments, the love, the romance, the intimacy that can fill everything with their love, and that’s what people love about them. They are among the power couples who show us what and how pure love is in this era of technology, social media, and competition. 

12. Joel Osteen and Victoria Osteen 

Joel Osteen and Victoria Osteen

When we think about love, we have a general overview but this story is a bit different. Joel and Victoria met in Victoria’s mom’s jewelry shop and after their first meeting, Joel was smitten. He pursued Victoria, who ultimately dated for two years before they got married. They have been blessed with two children, Alexandra and Jonathan. And what binds Joel and Victoria together so beautifully? God!

Do you know why we added them to our list of power couples? Being a couple of inspiration doesn’t just mean showing your love to the world with romance. Sometimes, it’s the things you do together that make you among the power couples. Joel Osteen and Victoria Osteen are together in God’s work, making them more powerful together. They truly share all aspects of their life, being it the smooth and warm running of their Lakewood Church in Texas, writing books together, or bringing up their children so beautifully. One of their best-selling books is “Love Your Life: Living Happy, Healthy and Whole”.

They are the spiritual couple that serves mankind with the word of God and that makes them one of the great iconic power couples today.

We cannot define power couples as being rich, famous, hot, sexy, or successful. Living in an advanced society, we can determine power couples as those who conceal each other’s flaws and appear perfect together. By being together they support each other to keep updating newer versions of themselves. 

So as long as we are compatible, are in a healthy relationship, have compassion, we can entrust each other, can support each other, we are among these be iconic power couples. We don’t need to be celebrities to be power couples.
