60 Pictures of Everyday Black Couples That Will Make Your Heart Swoon

Avatar • Mar 2, 2016

Recently on Tumblr Afro-Arts compiled images of black couples doing everyday things — shopping at the grocery store, taking selfies and making goofy faces. The images quickly went viral, a sweet reminder that, even in these difficult times, we have love. Sparked by Afro-Arts’ post we rounded up 60 of our favorite images of black couples laughing, living and loving in everyday life. We hope they put a smile on your face as they did ours 🙂 We weren’t able to find the original source for all of these images, so if you recognize anyone, please shout it out in the comments so we can add credits.

Turmeric , water, lemon/ lime mask. Put it on at night and wear PJ’s you don’t love..Lol Get a dollar make up brush to apply the mask. Grandpa’s Thylox sulfur soap is good and can get that from GNC. Get some microfiber clothes too ..hope this helps if you try it.

Couples and love and hugs and kisses are great and all, but I was really just caught up in looking at all the hair styles. Please forgive me.

The blog is focused on the celebration of black women so it is understandable they would not publish photos that don’t feature black women in this article. I don’t think they were saying anything negative by not including gay black men.

This is all gorgeous..but They all look like variations of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. Where are the everyday/non-insta looking Black couples, like our parents, siblings, frats, cousins, friends, aunt/uncles, etc?

There weren’t just straight couples in there…Although a real shame not to see any gay (male) couples included…straight, lesbian & gay relationships should all be celebrated and looked at through this celebratory lense.

Although I agree, I think black men and women were shown more because
a) society believes we cannot get along together
b) that’s what they could find
That’s just my theory

This website focuses more on black women.. So I think thats why they only show couples with at least 1 female in them. There are lesbian couples showcased if you look carefully.

So many of us are intensely concerned about the effects of harsh and, or dangerous chemicals in/on our temporal lives but not about the impact sexual immorality will have on our eternal lives?
Maybe our focus is wrong.
Virtue is beautiful. God’s mercy, forgivesness, grace and righteousness are beautiful. Love, as defined and demonstrated by God Almighty, is beautiful.
Yes, I’m going to be THAT person– the one who has the increasingly unpopular, exclusive, “behind-the-times” thing to say because, from where I’m standing, (as upsetting as some will find my comment) it’s unloving and disingenuous to do otherwise.

it’s not behind the times to have views based on the Bible. It’s not behind the times to believe the Bible. That would be an ahistorical claim that only fuels the fervor of self titled martyrs/victims of “The Good Word” like yourself. You are entitled to feel whatever you want as long as it doesn’t prevent other people from living their fullest most beautiful lives (according to what they feel is fullest and most beautiful). Unfortunately for you though, you don’t get to decide what “truth” everyone must live their lives in accordance with. This is not to tell you… Read more »

You’re right. I don’t get to decide. The Lord does. Thank you for not barring me from “dumping my spiritual beliefs into public forums …” Apparently it’s only acceptable for people who hold your views to do so.
“…no one cares.” said she who cared enough to reply. Brava~
I’m not called to convince you to care; I’m called to be His witness and proclaim His truth. He draws whom He will.

I wasn’t being sarcastic about my belief that you should have the right to express what you feel wherever you feel it I genuinely meant that. Often times Christians mobilize martyr like rhetoric i.e. (i am the lone voice of salvation in a sea of heathens and these heathens dont want me to speak the truth!!) And so i was offering as Heathen Supreme that your voice and your opinion is loved and welcome! No need to be a martyr. I also never said I wasn’t dumping my opinion into a public forum. I definitely am!! The only difference between… Read more »

Thanks sis. Yeah, I suppose it would suck, not in terms of the here-and-now (because my faith in Him sustains, propels, and enriches me in a way no other thing or person in this world has or could) but the idea of not being with Him eternally. My apologies for the tone I gave off, but, to be fair, of all the comments posted, there isn’t/wasn’t another like mine … and so, naturally, I suppose that would quite literally make me (and make me feel like) the “lone voice” (at least presently on this forum). I suppose I braced myself for… Read more »

Where are the black people in wheelchairs. Where are the over weight black people. Where are the albino black people. Where are the Asian black people? Where are the transgender black people? Where are the transgender homosexuality black people? Where are the blind black people? Unfortunately we live in a cultural that is hypersensitive about every slight omission of a niche group of people.…. When there is clearly no ill will intended. It is literally impossible to include every under-represented subgroup of an all ready under-represented group of people.… Good gracious, why is this even an issue? I don’t see… Read more »

I am disappointed by the overwhelmingly straight depiction of black love you are offering us. You had the opportunity to portray the fullness, the diversity, the DEPTH of black love and in a master post of sixty photos ~55 are ‚as far as I can see (which I’ll concede is a flawed tool of arbitration) a man and a woman. Those that are not are queer black women (femme and femme or femme and masc of center personal, which is both homonormative and an activation of the cultural obsession w hypersexualized black women I.e. where are the pics with two… Read more »
