Is Your Love Life Like Beyonce’s?
By James Preece
Beyonce recently launched her visual album Lemonade on HBO and it includes 11 sections which each represent a difficult chapter of her life. For example, there is song about her relationship with her father and a gospel inspired tune called “Freedom” which is all about hope.
However, it would seem that many of these chapters are all about her love life. The most important of these would be “Pray You Catch Me “ which suggests her husband Jay Z may have cheated on her.
We then learn that ultimately she decides to forgive him and move on because her family is the most important thing in the world to her and nothing else really matters.
As a relationship expert, I know that people can deal with infidelity in a variety of different way. For most, once you find out then it can be a huge shock. The shock leads to anger, disappointment and you begin to question everything about your life. You want answers and then may even begin to blame yourself for doing something wrong. You’ll wonder why you weren’t good enough and why they felt the need to cheat.
The truth is that you probably did nothing wrong
The fault must almost always lie with the person who did the cheating. Temptation got in the way and they decided the risk was worth it. What happens next is something you must both work out together. Either you end the relationship or you try to repair it. Nothing will ever be quite the same whatever you choose to do.
Beyonce knew the damage a divorce might do to her children if they split up. When you have children then everything you do is about their safety and happiness before you even think about your own. Divorce can really mess up their lives and that’s the last thing you ever want to do. Therefore, she chose to stay with her husband and see if they could rebuild the relationship.
Did Beyonce do the right thing by offering her husband forgiveness?
Only time will really tell, but I hope if Jay Z was unfaithful then it’s not something he will ever choose to do again. I really hope that their relationship will grow even stronger than it once was.
Any relationship is a work in progress and nobody is perfect. You may well wonder why anyone would ever want to cheat on Beyonce. Unfortunately, these things do happen and it’s all about lust in the moment rather than thinking everything through in detail. Perhaps Jay Z may have strayed because his ego was temporarily boosted or her was going through a difficult time. Only these two will ever know, despite hints in her Lemonade showcase.
The keys to making things work are trust, friendship and understanding
We are all continuously learning and as such mistakes will happen. Forgiveness can be an even harder thing than breaking up and takes a strong person. Beyonce shows this and she is willing to start again through the lyrics in her penultimate song “All Night”:
“Our love was stronger than your pride/ Beyond your darkness, I’m your light”
