Beyoncé and Jay Z

Rumors started flying about Beyoncé's and Jay Z’s love when they first collaborated on their hit song “03 Bonnie & Clyde” in 2002. Bey was 19 when they started dating and had no interest in getting hitched right away, but Jigga was patient. On April 4, 2008, music’s biggest couple was married in a private ceremony.
