Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union Combine to Form Power Couple

Throughout the world of pop culture there are a number of so-called power couples that combine huge amounts of riches and fame into one relationship -- with Jay-Z and Beyonce being a prime example. Combined they are worth over a billion dollars, and their mix of great public image, incredible talent at making music and general appeal make them one of the most powerful and popular couples in the world.

When it comes to the sporting world and looking for any couples that approach the level of popularity of Jay-Z and Beyonce, there are a few couples that sit on a high pantheon of combined popularity. But the recently engaged Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union may just top the list. On the one hand you have a future NBA Hall of Famer in Wade, who has won three NBA Championships with the Miami Heat and is one of the most recognizable faces in the sporting world. Meanwhile, Union is a beautiful actress who has been in successful films such as Bad Boys II and is now the main character in the television show Being Mary Jane.

Together the two surely have excessive riches, but they have still been able to keep their personal lives in check and form a stable relationship. Still, this does not mean that Wade and Union are opposed to having a fun time, and they have consistently kept fans up to date with their lives since beginning to date in 2009.

With this in mind, I have chronicled a list of 15 pictures of Wade and Union throughout the time they have been dating and subsequently gotten engaged. These pictures bring a look into a life that is seemingly filled with a mix of fun vacations, hard work and raising three young boys that shows the two pop culture stars are more than the people you see on television.
