It is clear that they have gone through a difficult period in the past but Beyoncé and Jay-Z are still Crazy in Love.
So, how did they fix their marriage and stay a strong family?
"It was very difficult for them to stay married," an insider told People. "It took Beyoncé a long time to trust again, she struggled to go forward and forgive, but keeping her family together was very important."
Indeed, the emphasis on parenting may have been the saving grace of the music couple.
"If it was not for Blue Ivy, they might not be together," added the couple's insider. "It took them years to get to the point where they are now."
Today, Beyoncé, 36, and JAY-Z, 48, "are very proud of overcoming huge marital problems and happy to have been able to move on family thing, "said the insider.
In a recent interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine, the rap legend spoke of their previous marital problems. He said, "You know, most people go …
'The divorce rate is 50% or something because most people can not see each other. The hardest thing is to see the pain on someone's face that you have caused, and then to deal with yourself. So, you know, most people do not want to do that. You do not want to look inside yourself. "
The couple, who got married in 2008, welcomed the youngest additions to their family earlier this year.
