With the revolving door of celebrity relationships, it can be difficult to take anything seriously sometimes. Yet a handful of R&B artist couples inspired love in the masses. Witnessed by the world, these pairs entered our mushy little hearts, too. And when they split, our universe crumbled and our meanings of life and love were questioned. Why? WHY!
