Millennials are awesome.  I’m not sure how we’ve come to get such a bad reputation. Maybe it’s because we are swaying from the status quo or trying things that no one has done before. Although there might be many reasons, there are also some really amazing movements that could be rooted back to the rumored, “not-so-favorable” millennial-thinking. In tribute to Valentine’s Day, there is not a better time to bring up the movement of “power couples“.

The power couple definition from Urban Dictionary is summarized as:

A relationship between two people [who] are as individually awesome and fun to be around as they are when they are together.

They know in their heart that they are just as valuable to the world as the other. Good looking, optimistic, and sparks a light in the world that people recognize.

In a power couple, if one person is flawed, the other person makes up for their weaknesses in strength.

This is a relatively new concept. Until maybe 40 years ago, men had the spotlight. (Don’t quote me on that) But in relationships, in careers and daily life, the women needed to cater to the men. Their self would have to come second.

The focus has since changed from patriarchy to togetherness. The status quo wants to see couples together who are feeding from each other’s success. It’s inspiring to see the support between them, ultimately being able to grow together.

An example is Gerard Adams and Alyssa Yannuzzi. You might know Gerard from his amazingly inspirational IG and Alyssa for her looks. From an outsider’s perspective, her strengths help Gerard where he needs support and vice versa. Maybe Alyssa has more weaknesses than Gerard, not hatin’, but they are able to work together and build each other up. Be a #powercouple
