In a society and culture that is, at times, can seem obsessively intrigued by the "life goals" and "couple goals" of others it is nice to see when said "goals" being sought after are positive in nature. When it comes to the relationship of R&B singer-songwriter Ciara and her husband NFL Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson this has long been the case.
The couple, who've been married since 2016, aren't new to the idea that many fans and onlookers in the public fancy their relationship. People have even gone as far as to ask Ciara for the prayer she prayed in order to "secure" a husband like Russell. The couple is always upfront when it comes to questions on how they maintain a successful and fruitful marriage and partnership. They admit their faith is a large part of their relationship and how they sustain it. So it comes as no surprise that the couple prays together. However, an image of them doing just that recently surfaced and had many excitedly commenting on their relationship.
Many find the idea of couple goals or life goals in general as unrealistic in nature as no two relationships or lives will be the same. This notion is indeed correct, however it's also true that there is such a thing as positive and negative representation within the media. And more often than not the negative representations are hailed and popularized; whether that be women being rewarded with Birkin bags for sticking around through their partners unfaithful behavior. It's very nice to see practices such as worshiping alongside your partner being publicly appreciated. Check out what some Twitter users had to say regarding these viral images.

Seeing Russell Wilson and Ciara’s picture in church today really reminds me how much better relationships/marriages go when God is the center. I can’t wait to move to that place in my life 🥺— the daughter 🧚🏾♀️👑 (@bjmil02) August 2, 2021

This photo of Ciara and Russell reminds me that when you completely surrender to God, you won’t have to worry about a thing.

As much as I love that picture of Ciara and Russell praying at church I also feel bad that they cannot worship without being photographed .— Mrs Basset 👑🤞🏿 (@Sincereshy) August 3, 2021
Many found the image endearing and encouraging, however some found taking photos of the couple in such an intimate setting was encroaching on their privacy. Others also found fault in the fact that many wishing for the same type of relationship may rarely pray or have not "put in the work" when it comes to their own personal walk with God.
We would love to hear your thoughts down below! Comment if you think Ciara and Russell are your couple goals or if you think one ought have and make their own couple goals.
