The couple kicked off their relationship five years after meeting for the first time. Although they've had their struggles, Tempestt and Darryl have continued to stand by each other over the years.

When asked how they've managed to stay together for so long, without marriage, Bledsoe replied:

"I think we are very compatible. I think that is really the heart of it. People ask us what it is…… And laughter is also very important."
