Idris Elba & Sabrina Dhowre Elba Share What Keeps Their Relationship Strong

"I think never losing sight of the fact that it's a journey is really important."

Celebrity News

Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre Elba are gearing up for the second season of their podcast Coupledom where they interview partners in business and/or romance. The stunning couple has been married for three years but they have been together for a total of six years. During that time, they have developed many partnerships but quickly learned that working together isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.


Idris and Sabrina shared more about that in an interview with PEOPLE. "It's not 100 percent easy to work with someone you're in a relationship with,” Sabrina said. “But I feel like we've definitely sort of found our way. Now we get to sort of build dreams together and see what that looks like."

Working together may lead to arguments but the couple believes in working things out prior to ending their day. "Generally if we have an argument, I don't like to go to bed angry, and I think he's the same," Sabrina said. "That's probably the one thing that we always try not to do."

Idris shared some beautiful insight into how he believes relationships should be navigated even in the face of adversity. "Everyday sort of squabbles, you just differ and move on,” he said. “I think never losing sight of the fact that it's a journey is really important. When you're swimming, you don't look up to count the laps, because you get tired very quickly. It's a bit like that with marriage. I love anniversaries, but I don't want to count the years."

Idris and Sabrina’s podcast is just one joint venture they’ve been working on. They also launched genderless skin care brand S’Able Labs in February in an effort to make Black people feel more seen in the wellness industry.

In an interview with Vogue, the businesswoman shared what it was like creating the company with her British beau. “It’s definitely had its hardships—we’d be completely lying if we didn’t admit that off the bat,” she said.

“But at the same time, it’s brought us so much closer together. We have a shared purpose of creating this change, and we remind each other that it’s okay if it’s hard sometimes, because it just leads to better outcomes. As our business relationship grows, our personal one grows alongside it. And Idris is really new to the skincare journey, so it’s great to be able to share amazing skincare with him—he finally gets it!”

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
