After 12 Years of Marriage, Beyoncé and JAY-Z Are Still Crazy in Love
We've watched Beyoncé and JAY-Z grow together in the spotlight since they tied the knot in 2008 after four years of dating. They welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy Carter in 2012, and added twins Sir and Rumi to their family in 2017. As time has passed, we've seen plenty of glimpses of their love in the form of warm hugs, quick kisses, and steamy onstage performances — and we've also been privy to details about the rough patches in their relationship on their recent albums, Lemonade, 4:44, and Everything Is Love.
Like any other couple, Beyoncé and JAY-Z have weathered storms and come out on the other side, seemingly stronger than ever. They're ringing in their 12th wedding anniversary on April 4, and to celebrate their milestone, we're looking back on their cutest pictures over the years.
