Every relationship has its complications, but it's up to the people in the relation, to handle things with care and make sure the impediment doesn't end up on a sad note.
Kirsten Corley, the girlfriend-turned-wife of famous rapper and singer Chance the Rapper, is an excellent example of embodying the above statement. Kirsten's journey with Chance was filled with ups and downs and sailed through rough tides.
However, the troubled duo's ride reached the destination as they finally got married.
Tumultuous Dating History With Chance The Rapper
Chancellor Johnathan Bennett, who's known professionally as Chance the Rapper, began dating Kirsten Corley in 2013. The couple had first met in 2003, ten years before they started dating, at his mother's office party, and Chance became attracted to the young girl.
However, their time together saw them break up and patch up numerous times. With their relationship on a bumpy trail, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Kensli, in September 2015.
The birth of their child instead of bringing the couple's together had an opposite effect. Instead of reveling in the birth of their child, they decided to bring their relationship to a full stop.
Kirsten reportedly filed a petition requesting the court in February 2016 asking the court to award the "sole caretaker" role of their daughter and also claimed child support.
Moves In With Rapper Boyfriend
However, Kirsten and Chance gave their relationship one more chance and decided to act in the best interest of their child. She withdrew the petition in March 2016 and moved in together with her boyfriend and started living together like a family.
Well, the parents of a beautiful daughter overcame their problem and decided to harness their family together. A few months down the line, Chance posted a freestyle rap video to Monica's So Gone, on 10 August 2016. The video at the end gave away a glimpse of the mother of his child, Kirsten.
Post their petition saga petition; their bond grew more robust. Moreover, she remained very supportive of her partner during the internal conflicts he went through in 2016. He even dedicated a song for her citing the support he received from Kirsten through the help of religion and abstinence. As per her partner,
"I need you to hear one song on my album that has my best verse that I have written in my life,It's called "We Go High." I explain that my wife literally saved my life by becoming celibate and going and getting baptized."
Their relationship grew stronger and Chance took to Instagram in January 2017 and posted a picture of the rapper holding his wife-to-be and daughter tightly and wrote: "No matter what we are, we're always family."

Moreover, Chance posted a picture of their daughter on Instagram, February 10, 2017, captioning,
"Nothing I'm doing currently would be possible without this girl right here. She's so kind and loving and brilliant and beautiful. And I wouldn't have her without her mother, so thank you for creating and raising the greatest gift I've ever received. Cannot wait to get back to this."
The duo finally settled down with each other in a subtle way. Further, Chance gave a big shout-out to daughter Kensli and girlfriend Kirsten as he was awarded a Grammy for the Best New Artist at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

From Girlfriend To Fiancee
The pair finally decided to settle down and became engaged on 4 July 2018. Chance got down on his one knee and proposed to her long-time girlfriend, Kirsten, to be his wife.
The proposal video later got shared by The Shade Room, where Kirsten seemed to be surprised by the proposal. However, her initial surprise was swept away by emotion, and the baby mama happily accepted the proposal.
