There's just something about power couples. When two highly successful individuals get together, you've got a relationship that epitomizes a dream team, and that's easy to admire.
After all, it's hard work maintaining your own career and life on top of a powerful marriage.
Apart from success, one thing that power couples often have in common? Money. At least, for the most iconic power couples.
