Unconventional Power Couples

By Elayza Gonzalez

Sorry Jay and Bey, but it’s time someone else gets their day in the sun (even though you’ll always be #GOALS).

Power couples are defined as two individuals who are equally strong, independent and dynamic and together can conquer the world. In today’s day and age, it’s important to acknowledge power couples don’t need to consist of a man and a woman in a romantic relationship. In fact, some reasons why power couples are so powerful is because they’re friends first and lovers second.

Whether you’re the Chrissy to someone’s John or the Gayle to someone’s Oprah, find someone who is in sync with you; who can help you overcome all obstacles; who has an unwavering support for you and who complements you like avocado complements toast. If romance comes out of it, then that’s an added bonus.

These are some examples of underrated couples who have proven that together they’re more powerful than apart:

Tina & Amy

For more than 20 years, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have set the gold standard when it comes to comedy and friendship. The two first met as improv comedians and eventually made history by becoming the first female co-anchors on SNL’s Weekend Update. Whether they’re making movies or roasting Hollywood A-Listers at the Golden Globes, these two prove real friends can stand the test of time and showbiz.

Barack & Joe

Former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are the definition of #FriendshipGoals. Their legacy includes nominating the first Hispanic (and female) Supreme Court Justice, creating health care for all with Obamacare and witnessing Love Win when the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage was a national right. They made history together all while rocking friendship bracelets.

Jennifer & Emma

Six Academy Award nominations, two wins and both under 30 years old — Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are shaping the new generation of Hollywood. Despite their commercial success and critical triumphs, what makes this duo so special is how relatable they are. This is the type of friend you’re equal parts obsessed with, jealous of and want to be a part of.

Justin & Jimmy

One has 10 Grammy Awards plus a newly released album, while the other is the host of The Tonight Show, but together, Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon have a bromance for the ages. When they’re not hosting SNL together, or reviewing the History of Rap, they “bro-bike” through the Hamptons and ride off into the sunset.

Albert & Alberta

Last, but certainly not least, is UF’s very own power couple. Since 1986, Albert and Alberta have rolled through the streets of The Swamp as symbols of the Gator Nation. Together, they embody loyalty, pride and spirit, but more importantly, they prove that life is greater when you have someone to share it with.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
