Donald Trump’s marriage to Marla Maples lasted only 6 years, but it was very passionate, full of love and mutual care. Their numerous photos are a good example of mutual attachment and interest. The couple divorced in 1999 due to a misunderstanding that could have been caused by their age difference.

Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Vanessa Paradis spent 14 years together. Look how they lean to each other. Even in public, their hands are intertwined, their bodies turned to each other. Their pose illustrates a deep care of each other. Unfortunately, their marriage ended because of Depp’s affair with Amber Heard. However, after the divorce, they remained good friends.

In 2005, Trump married Melania Knauss, and their romance and personal life attracted wide media coverage. However, experts consider their poses in photos to be artificial and fake. In many photos, Melania appears to be very tense, and Donald often shows an ownership gesture. Today you rarely see them holding hands. More often, Melania swats away Donald’s hand in public.

Soon after his divorce, Depp married Amber Heard, but you can see how different these relationships are. They stand almost separately with a space between them, and the touching looks very artificial. Their relationship seems to be more demonstrative than sincere. No wonder they split up after just a year with a big scandal.

As you can see, subtle body language signals can sometimes speak louder than words. Do you recognize yourself in any of these postures? Look at your own photos, and decide which body language is typical of your couple. Share your thoughts and real-life examples in the comments.
