I’m so glad these two have worked past their issues — they really seem like an amazing couple. Every couple has their issues and it’s even harder when you’re in the public eye. We learned that Gabrielle Union split from Dwyane Wade for a short period of time and then later learned he impregnated another woman while on that break. Gabrielle and Wade even got engaged knowing the situation they were in. So why did Gabby take Wade back?! She explains…
“It was because of distance and scheduling,” the “Being Mary Jane” star said. “I finished filming the show, then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting ‘Think Like a Man Too.’ I couldn’t take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed.”
However, Union said that during the summer she “reassessed priorities” and ultimately decided that she wanted to make their relationship work. Wade, who also has two sons from a previous marriage and is raising his nephew as well, felt the same way.
“I’d always wanted an awesome career with back-to-back projects, but I realized I wasn’t willing to sacrifice my relationship for it. Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family,” she said. “Bottom line: If an issue’s a deal breaker, it’s a deal breaker. If your relationship isn’t something you’re willing to give up and you can compromise, do so.”
Now, the two make sure to be affectionate with each other all the time. Union said that Wade never leaves the house without kissing her goodbye and saying, “I love you,” and added that she compliments him constantly.
“I am almost a little Chester the Molester-y. I think he’s so delicious,” she said. “Watching him get out of the shower never gets old. Never. It’s not like he ever wonders what I’m thinking, but usually he’s thinking, She needs a cold shower!’”
