Not trying to take away from the J’s and Bey’s of the world but many of us throw this power couple stance around too loosely. What really makes us believe we achieved power couple/#couple goals status? Is it the fact we can dress it up and make it look real good for our friends or our social media?
If this is the case, all we are doing is making cute photos. At some point in time we need to mature past this cute phase because I think we’ve all done this as teens. Remember going to the mall and taking those pictures and choosing the type of hokey romantic background you wanted? I know, cheesy, right?
When I think about couple goals, I think about that couple who decides that one will sponsor all the bills the other one focuses on furthering their education and then swap roles so they can obtain financial security together. Or that couple that travels to another State or foreign country and volunteer their service after destruction from a natural disaster.
So if you’re honest about your current situation or where you desire to be, is it really #couple goals or are you just another hashtag of cute photos?
