Few couples give us major relationship envy quite like Caster Semenya and her wifey Violet Raseboya. But instead of hating from outside of the club‚ we decided to run down a list of things that make them one of the best couples ever.
1. Violet’s support is unsurpassed: ‘She’s the best thing that ever happened to me’
In the process of glorifying a successful person‚ we often tend to ignore the role of the larger team at play.
Even in a sport like athletics‚ it’s the larger team that enables the player to stay focused‚ making him or her successful. This theory holds perfectly well in the case of Caster‚ where her wife has played the role of her support system – the larger team working behind her success.
Reminding the whole world of her support structure‚ Caster told Sunday Times in an interview earlier this year that Violet “is the best thing that [has] ever happened” to her.
“She’s the best thing that ever happened to me‚ because she supports me in everything I do. She’s the one who encouraged me to go to school‚ to train hard and to look at my future‚” she revealed.

2. A couple that dances together‚ stays together
A couple that dances together‚ stays together‚ or so they say. This mantra certainly seems to be working for Caster and Violet‚ who went viral thanks to an adorable video of them doing a Pedi dance.
3. Does your partner call you #MyEverydayCrush?
While some of you only get mentioned on Instagram by your partners on Mondays or Wednesdays‚ this is hardly the case in this relationship.
In some of the many posts when Violet is gushing over Caster on social media‚ she refers to her as #MyEverydayCrush.

4. Friends before lovers
Look‚ we’re no relationship experts‚ but we definitely know that at the base of every great relationship is a strong friendship.
Take Caster and Violet for instance…
While stalking Violet’s Instagram account we came across yet another gushing note about her partner. This time it was about their friendship.
“Find someone who will choose to love you for life. Not only during the good times. Friendship that is priceless‚” she wrote.
5. Red carpet game on fleek
How stunning did Caster and Violet look when they recently walked the red carpet at the 2016 MAMAs?
You can’t begin to hate.
