There was never any doubt that Beyoncé would prove to be a survivor. No one was too concerned that she wouldn’t be able to bounce back from whatever career setback or marital infraction was thrown at her. She would have survived and thrived.The same went for Jay-Z.

He would’ve been maligned, pretty fairly, as the root of all their troubles, and then eventually forgiven.But there was plenty of doubt that Beyoncé and Jay-Z were going to come out on the other side together, their empire fully intact.
And yet here they are, celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary today, now parents of three and planning a sequel to their wildly successful On the Run tour.
