  • In 2009, Gabrielle Union began dating NBA player Dwyane Wade. Since then, the head-over-heels couple went through a brief split in 2013, a romantic proposal, and a beautiful wedding.

    Having both been previously married, Union and Wade took their time getting engaged. "If the goal is forever, what are we rushing for?"

    The couple married on August 30, 2014, in Miami, Florida. Upon the marriage, Union became a stepmother to Xavier and Wade's two elder sons from his first marriage, Zaire (born 2002) and Zion (born 2007). Union and Wade spent their honeymoon in the Maldives and Tanzania.

    "What you learn from divorce is you have to be incredibly honest, about what you want, what you need, and what your expectations are," Union said in 2012. "As women, we're sort of taught to go along, to get along, not cause any ruffles…but yeah, that got me divorced."

    "I think the one thing is, we are imperfect, just like every couple in the world," Wade said Friday night at the celebration of his Ocean Drive Magazine cover story at StripSteak by Michael Mina at Fontainebleau Miami Beach. "We stick together through it all – through the great times, through the bad times."
