In the February issue of ESSENCE, Miami Heat Superstar Dwayne Wade reveals he and longtime girlfriend/actress Gabrielle Union are taking their time before they take the leap into marriage.
“We’re not rushing it.” Wade says in the article. ”Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right. We both took failing at marriage hard. The next time it’s gotta be forever.”
Wade was previously married to his high school girlfriend Siohvaughn Funches. The couple had two sons together, but eventually divorced in 2007. Union married former NFL-er Chris Howard in 2001, and divorced in 2006.
I have to say that they are one of the cutest couples in sports right now. This article shows the level of commitment, respect and love the two have for each other. After reading this you’ll tell yourself, ‘I want what they have’.
The February issue of ESSENCE will be available on newsstands Jan. 12.
