Coupledom: Why We Love Joe Budden and Cyn Santana’s Relationship

If you have been living under a rock, Joe Budden proposed to Cyn Santana and she said yes!

First of all, congratulations to the happy couple. I think it’s safe to say that we have been rooting for this two and I’m glad they are taking their relationship to the next level. With that being said…don’t you just LOVE these two together? I mean…Cyn just has a glow about her when she’s with Joe that ain’t nothing love.

If you are unfamiliar with these two, allow me to catch you up to speed. For the most part their relationship(s) have been played out on VH1’s hit reality series Love and Hip Hip: New York. For the longest time Joe was in a relationship with his longtime-girlfriend Tahiry. They had plenty of ups and downs in their relationship, included Joe’s admitted drug use. This isn’t the first time Joe proposed to a woman he loved. He famously got down on one knee in the middle of Time Square and popped the big question to Tahiry only to get denied. The moment was awkward to say the least BUT…it made for good TV

Cyn Santana’s wasn’t as bad but she definitely had a rough start. She was introduced to the franchise through her relationship with Erica Mena and their relationship was filled with drama. Erica is already as crazy as they come so I can imagine what being in a relationship with her was like. Her side relationship with the self-proclaimed creep Rich Dollaz was a constant strain on their relationship but it wasn’t until her and Erica came to blows that Cyn eventually had enough

Since then, Joe Budden and Cyn Santana have been a thing. They had a baby boy and have given us access to their relationship on this season of Love and Hip Hop: New York that’s currently airing on VH1. Why do we love these two so much? The answer for me is simple.

It’s because they truly look happy together!

Seriously guys. We have literally seen how unhappy Joe and Cyn were in their past relationships. Speaking on Joe in particular, he has overcame A LOT  and him being in the good space he is in is a testament to how much of an impact his relationship with Cyn has been to his life. This twitter user here said it best…

Fun. Happiness. It’s simple! They clearly are great friends and enjoy being together. That’s what a relationship should be about at the end of the day, right? Joe was with Tahiry for a while and even with couples therapy, they weren’t able to work it out. Those two just seem like it got to the point they weren’t genuinely happy with each other and ain’t nobody got time for that!

To Joe and Cyn…we’re rooting for you two! Don’t forget to share your wedding registry with us!
