In 1991, the seemingly perfect duo said their "I dos," with no hint of what is about to come to rock their boats. That same year, Magic made a public announcement admitting his retirement from basketball and that he was HIV positive.

The world was shocked by the news but found Cookie's unwavering support more unbelievable. At the time, she was pregnant with EJ but remained firmly by her husband's side.

A few years later, Cookie confessed that it was not easy, although fortunately she and her son tested negative for the disease. Fortunately, their love for each other made it possible to weather the storm.

This was not the only time that their marriage witnessed a threat. In 2001, they were secretly separated for two weeks and would have ended things.

According to Cookie, they began growing apart because Magic was often busy working while she was a stay-at-home mom. Thankfully, they scaled through and became stronger than before.

These days news about the couple is often attached to the fact that they are hosting and enjoying luxury parties, getaways, as well as successful projects.
