10 Ways Adonis and Bianca's Relationship Is A Millennial Love Story We're Here For

10 Ways Adonis and Bianca's Relationship Is A Millennial Love Story We're Here For

They go beyond the label of "relationship goals."


There are so many couples on TV and in movies that people dove "relationship goals" or "OTP" (one true pairing. We have Bughead (Betty and Jughead), Delenia (Damon and Elena), and of course Rocky and Adrian. But not a lot of them are relatable to the people who watch these couples on screen.

But one couple who has been a fan favorite for a lot of people is the relationship between Adonis Creed and Bianca Taylor played by Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson. In the first movie, we see them grow from being neighbors to becoming lovers and in the second film, we watch their relationship grow into a marriage and they become parents. All while we see them go through the ups and downs of this journey we call life.

1. They have the realest meet cute ever.

When Donnie moves to Philly into a loft building for millennials, he's disturbed by the music blaring from his downstairs neighbor. He goes down and bangs on the door, only to have the door open by Bianca who was in the middle of mixing her music. He can't even find words to say for a minute cause he's just hypnotized by this girl. It's something you don't usually see in dramatic movies and it isn't cheesy.

2. They both have personal goals.


They aren't that couple that is attached to the hip to each other. They both have their own personal goals and they love to see each other achieving their dreams. Adonis has that smile when he watches Bianca sing and Bianca would shadowbox when Adonis is fighting in the ring.

3. They motivate each other.

Having that person by your side cheering you on is the most motivating feeling a person can have. Both of these characters are in each other's corners during those big moments whether it be the biggest fight in your career or your first live concert in front of a whole crowd.

4. They keep each other grounded.

When they elevate in their careers, neither let's the other get a big head and reminds the person where they started and what's really important to them. When Adonis is going to fight Drago both times, Bianca keeps him in a stable ground especially after the beating he has after the first fight. She supports her man but at the same time, she keeps him in check when his ego gets the best of him.

5. They're willingly to make it work when life gets hard.


In the movies, Adonis is beaten to a pulp by Viktor Drago and Bianca is at his side and helps him recover from the fight that could've taken his life. All while Bianca suffers from progressive hearing loss and eventually will go fully deaf. Most guys would just leave and not want to deal. But Adonis is willing to make it work with her because of love. He even starts learning sign language with her so he could communicate with her. Name a guy who takes the time to be there for his girl.

6. They genuinely love each other.


Their relationship is more than just a sexual relationship, they are both lovers and friends. They are two characters who appear as closed off are able to actual conversations with each other about their hopes and fears. The only person Adonis can talk to about the pressures of having the name "Creed" and having to live up to his father's legacy is Bianca. Bianca opens up to Adonis about her hearing loss and her fear of their own kids having the same condition genetically. Between the first and second movie, we see a relationship established over three years and the puppy love that the started at grew to a genuine real love.

7. Their little family is so beautiful.


We see Adonis and Bianca have a daughter in Creed 2 and we see them become new parents. A lot of people loved seeing the black family displayed in movies so beautifully. One of the heart-wrenching challenges they face is when their daughter, Amara, is born deaf and we see them both go through the devastating news and finding the strength in each other to be there strong for their baby. We see them at the end of the movie visiting Apollo's grave and she has the same hearing aids her mother has, foreshadowing them being a united front as a family and future children to come in the next movies.

8. They are a team in and outside the ring.

Not only are they a team as a couple, but they're also a team in life. Whether it be raising a family or going into a fight, they got each other's back. They move across the country from Philadelphia to Los Angelas together to start their new life and go through expecting a baby. Going through life's moments and being the safety net for the other person.

9. They can keep it 100 with each other.

This couple has a "No BS Rule" meaning they are honest and don't keep secrets from each other. Whatever's going on, they aren't afraid to check to other person and be truthful with each other at the same time. Their moments just laying down on the floor and just letting the other person in is just touching.

10. Their romance is not picture perfect but it's real love.


All the moments they have together are not what you expect in a basic love story. Case in point, When Donnie gets into a fight at Bianca's show, she's scared at the kind of person he becomes when he's angry. But later we see her fly to London to be there for his first official fight and she's able to understand how much pain he's kept in over so many years and he felt safe to finally let it go. Fast forward to Creed 2 when he proposes to Bianca, she couldn't hear him the first time and he was able to shake off the nerves and spoke from the heart. What makes their story so beautiful and genuine are that those moments are real and it shows two people falling in love.

If Taylor Swift Songs Were Types Of Alcohol

Because what's better than a drink and some T-Swift?

With Taylor Swift's quick return to the music scene... and in a big way, might I add, I decided to associate some of the best Taylor Swift songs with alcohol.

I mean, who wouldn't want to drink to Taylor Swift's catchy melodies and perfect choruses to get over an ex or tell someone exactly how you feel about them?

Taylor Swift has been around for a decade at this point, and let's face it, pretty much all of her songs could go along with at least one type of alcohol.

1. "Welcome To New York" - Moscow Mule

It only makes sense. Visit the Big Apple and you have to indulge in the state's signature cocktail. Moscow mules are a New York classic, and if it's your first night in the city and you haven't bought yourself one, are you even in New York?

2. "Blank Space" - Everclear

Think about it... A night of drinking Everclear will leave you with a giant blank space the next day. You might also look like Taylor did in the music video.

3. "Tim McGraw" - Beer

Tim McGraw is a throwback to Taylor's high school love. What better way to reminisce than with a couple friends and a keg of your favorite cheap beer?

4. "Style" - Cristal Champagne

What's more stylish than with a glass of the most expensive bubbly you can find? Just like Taylor Swift, Cristal will never go out of style.

5. "Shake It Off" - Martini

Get it? Cause you shake a martini? I might be the only one who thinks that's funny but you might end up dancing a little bit with a martini in hand when "Shake It Off" come on the radio.

6. "Red" - Merlot

Red has to go along with a red wine. What else could go along with yet *another* T-Swift breakup song?

7. "22" - Margaritas

Let's face it, when you're 22, you really only drink margaritas. They're fun- and all the hipsters are probably drinking them too.

8. "Teardrops On My Guitar" - Southern Comfort

When your heart is broken, who are you going to turn to besides the only alcohol that gives you comfort...Southern Comfort that is.

9. "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Fireball

I can't say I've ever met anyone who spent a night with Fireball and didn't regret it the next morning.

10. "Look What You Mad Me Do" - Tequila

T-Swift's latest single is an angry one. What better to make you angry than tequila? Taylor basically just called out everyone who had ever talked about her behind her back and she did it in true Taylor fashion-by writing a song. She was probably drunk on tequila when she wrote it too.

11. ...Ready For It? - Bottomless Mimosas

Because it's just that good.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.


Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
