- Power couples balance successful marriages with high-powered careers.
- From entertainment to politics to tech, these happily married pairs span many industries.

Some people seem to have it all.
Juggling a successful career or marriage has its challenges, but doing both well can quickly launch you into power couple status.
Devoting time to the relationship may be harder for power couples. But across many industries, from entertainment to politics to tech, these duos have managed to stay happily married while building empires together.
Scroll through to see seven of the richest power couples in the world.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen
Combined net worth: $540 million
Both halves of this tanned and toned power couple, who have been married for eight years, are in the top earners of their respective industries. Supermodel Gisele Bündchen is the highest-paid model in the world, raking in $30.5 million in 2016, and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the third-highest paid player in NFL history. His endorsement deals earn him about $8 million annually.
Perhaps the most telling example of their wide-ranging influence is the viral news of their insane diet, which is composed of 80% vegetables and 20% lean meats.
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner
Combined net worth: Between $207 million and $762 million
The eldest daughter of President Donald Trump and unpaid adviser in the White House, Ivanka Trump just celebrated her eighth wedding anniversary with husband Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the president and owner of a real-estate empire.
Their estimated net worth was revealed earlier this year in public filings that document the couple’s assets, including a $25 million art collection, and income from the Ivanka Trump lifestyle brand and various investments.
Kushner suggests the couple, who are parents to three children, have their roles figured out: “I would say she is definitely the CEO of our household, whereas I’m more on the board of directors.”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Combined net worth: $1.16 billion
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are entertainment royalty. The couple — who has been married since 2008 and have three children — earn their wealth primarily from music producing credits, album sales, live performances, and worldwide tours, as well as stakes in streaming service Tidal, a private jet company, and a luxury champagne brand.
This summer, they bought an $88 million mansion in Los Angeles — for which they took out a $59 million mortgage — making it the sixth priciest home purchase in LA history. Not bad for the highest-paid celebrity couple in the world.
