Beyonce is usually quiet about her marriage to Jay-Z, but she recently opened up to GQ about how she and her rapper husband keep their relationship strong.
"I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship. I've seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship -- it doesn't matter which one -- doesn't feel confident, they feel a bit trapped," she said. "Your self-worth is determined by you. You don't have to depend on someone telling you who you are."
Beyonce and Jay-Z began dating in 2002 and married in April 2008. Beyonce gave birth to the couple's daughter, Blue Ivy in January 2012. Jay-Z revealed that Beyonce had suffered a miscarriage before Blue Ivy's birth in his song "Glory," released the same month.
