Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Broadus are still going strong as the two celebrate 21 years of marriage. The two posted throwback photos of them together on Instagram in honor of their special day.
These high school sweethearts tied the knot in June of 1997 and now have three children together: Corde (22), Cordell (20) and Cori (17).
In 2004, the couple filed for divorce but were quickly able to resolve many of the withstanding issues in their marriage.
Snoop says while talking with Queen Latifah during a 2013 interview, “you gotta understand the turmoil and stuff that I put her through, in my journey on becoming successful, because I had no understanding of how I was doing her, how I was hurting her, and how I was betraying myself, until I became a man and realized that I had to love this woman who loved me and had my kids.”
While no marriage is perfect, they have found a way to make it past the second decade mark and we wish the couple a happy 21st anniversary!
