Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf
This couple’s 17-year marriage certainly has a thing or two to teach us. Graf has proven herself as one of the most successful tennis players after winning 22 Grand Slam singles titles. Agassi, on the other hand, is an eight-time Grand Slam champion and 1996 Olympic Gold medallist. He is also known for being the first male player to win four Grand Slam tournaments on three different surfaces. After 2 children and being married for 17 years the couple claims that the most important thing that keeps them together is discipline. In an interview, Agassi shared that “I think all too often, that discipline is lost in a marriage and that then spills over into a lack of respect and loosing care for each other. That is when communications can break down. That gives you a chance to make the most of a beautiful opportunity when you meet someone very special in life.”
Sanya Richards-Ross and Aaron Ross
The four-time Olympic Gold medallist and the two time Super Bowl champ shared that they are expecting a baby two years ago on Valentine’s day. Their little boy, Dencey was born in August and has the luck of being raised by a mum who won gold in 400m in the 2012 Olympics, gold in the 4 x 400m relay in 2004 Summer Olympics and was crowned as the best runner in 400m in the world for over a decade before retiring. She has been very vocal about how fortunate she feels to be raising a boy who will have Aaron Ross as an example.

Furthermore, Becky has really perfected her baking skills, starting her own ‘Baked by Becky’ bakery.
Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ana Ivanovic
The German professional football player and the Serbian professional tennis player are another example of an amazing couple. They have kept most of their relationship in private, which they claim helps them to be happier and more fulfilled.
