Nowadays, marriage has lost its sanctity. There was a time when marriage was seen as a sacred vow that mustn’t be broken.
Danette Jackson and Jon B. have set the example that you can settle for one partner rather than wanting a new one after some time.
And there was a time in the US when married life was seen as happy life. In the early 1950s, the marriage and childbirth rate was way higher than the divorce rate in the USA.
It was all okay until it wasn’t. The best and worst thing about time is that it changes, no matter what. So, time changed.
Today, the divorce rate in the United States of America alone is 45% to 50%, the highest it has ever been in history.
If these stats are to be believed, then half of all marriages in the USA end with divorce or at least separation of the couple. But, wait just a minute. Not always!
Danette Jackson and Jon B. have shown to the whole world that if the love is true, then one can be black and the other can be white, and they can still stay together for a very long time.
In the article, you and I will take a peek at these love birds’ personal, professional, and marital life and try to find the secret of their happy marriage. Let’s begin, shall we?
Who Is Danette Jackson?
Before diving into the main topic, it is important to know who Danette Jackson is, what she used to do before meeting Jon B., and how did they meet.
First things first, Danette Jackson is around 43 years old as of 2023, as her birthday falls on the 17th of November, and her birth year is 1979.
Now I know individuals like Danette Jackson do not have their own fame, but of their famous celebrity partners’ that is why claiming their birth date or any personal information will require strong reasoning.
So, why did I say 17th of November so confidently? That’s because, on the 17th of November 2020, a lady who was assumably a close friend of Jackson posted a picture of herself and Danette on Instagram.
And the caption was: “Happy Birthday to the Queeeeeen!!!! Appreciate you so much, Danette!” This proves that Danette was born on the 17th of November.
Furthermore, Danette is of the African-American ethnicity. It is not a claim or anything; it is just my observation, and you can totally disagree with me if you want.
I think there is a sexual appeal in black people that many of us fail to see or feel. But apparently, Jon B. didn’t.
Jackson was born in the USA, and she still resides there. We got lucky to find this beautiful lady’s birth date because any other information regarding her early/personal life is kept hidden from the public.
No one knows much about her parents, siblings, where exactly she was born, how she spent her childhood, and which college/university she attended.
As mentioned earlier, any fame she has today is because of her husband, Jon B.; had it been like this, hadn’t she married Jon B., I don’t think I would be writing about her or all of you reading about her.
That is just how it is, right?
How And When Did Danette Jackson Marry Jon B.?
All of us, or many of us, know who Jon B. is and how great he is at what he does. It is believed that Jon B. was highly inspired by some of the greatest musical artists of all time, like Michael Jackson, Prince, Sade, Babyface, and many others.
The inspiration paid off pretty well. His first, second, and third albums (Bonafide, Cool Relax, and Pleasures U Like) went platinum.
Jon B., in many interviews, expressed his attraction toward black (African-American) women/ladies. That can be a reason why he married Danette, among many others.
Danette’s husband, Jon B., began his music career in 1994 and gave out his first album, “Bonafide,” in 1995 and gained instant fame.
It is reported that before marrying, Jon and Danette were in a relationship for a long time; she met Jon in the early 2000s, around seven to eight years before tying the knot with him.
An already black-women-loving Jon couldn’t resist Danette Jackson’s beauty and positive aura, so what do you think he did?
Correct! He decided to make it official, but not how you all are thinking or guessing. I mean, we all are used to watching big wedding ceremonies of celebrities on social media.
That is why you’ll be surprised to know that Jon B. and Danette Jackson tied the knot in 2007 in a simple and small wedding ceremony with close relatives and friends.
Pretty strange, no? Well, not exactly. There is a huge difference between looking rich and actually being rich. Jon B. is a rich and famous individual; he doesn’t need to show it to everybody by spending millions on his wedding.
That is just my assumption, okay? Who knows what could’ve been the reason for all this? Do let me know in the comments about your opinion.
The Secret To Jon and Danette’s Happy Marital Life
If you are looking for a formula for this secret, you’d be disappointed. The only secret to this so far so successful marriage is understanding.
Despite being of different races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds, both of them chose to love each other to bits and showed the world that if age is just a number, then race and ethnicity are just labels.
The whole point is that if you are looking for the perfect one to come and change your life and still did not get someone, then why not be that “perfect one” for someone else?
By the looks of it, Danette and Jon are perfect for each other; that’s why they have been together for more than 14 years.
Moreover, they have two beautiful daughters: L’Wren True Buck, who is around 13 years, and Azure Luna Buck, who is around eight or nine years old.
Apparently, Danette Jackson does not have any social media account, but her husband has more than 268,000 followers on his Instagram handle at @officialjonb, where he posts pictures with his kids and wife.
