Of course.

Sure, halfway through Lemonade everyone thought Beyonce was announcing her divorce. BUT ALAS! At the end, she makes peace with Jay’s infidelities, and we can’t stop talking about it. But don’t feel badly- Beyonce wants us to! She wouldn’t have given us Lemonade if she didn’t want us to talk about her, analyze her relationship, talk about feminism, sex, identity. Which is what E! News decided to do. E! did a detailed analysis about what Lemonade says about Jay and Bey’s marriage and what this means going forward. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

Their marriage was in crisis in 2014: Their marriage was at breaking point and they were barely talking. A source says: “They had been having problems for years. There was a constant commitment issue between them and in the end they were barely speaking. Beyoncé didn’t fully trust Jay and it was hard for her to get past that. They went to a lot of counseling and have been working on their issues ever since. They had help to get them through it.”

The rumors about Rachel Roy & Jay-Z: An insider says: “It’s true, Rachel and Jay were friends and it wasn’t seen as appropriate by people who knew them.”

Why did Rachel Roy post that Instagram? “Rachel Roy wanted to defend herself after watching Beyoncé’s Lemonade,” a source close to Roy reveals, noting that her Instagram post was an “immediate reaction” to the singer’s visual album. Meanwhile, another insider adds, “Bey will never mention any names, but the people who those songs are about know.”

The Elevator Incident in 2014: “The fact everything became so public, it was embarrassing, and the first time she had to really deal with some of the questions people were asking about her marriage. It changed things. It was a pivotal moment.”

Jay supports Beyonce’s Lemonade: “He is fully supportive. He understands the reasoning. This is part of the process of being transparent. And they have healed. He has been very humble about the experience. Beyoncé is the love of his life and he will do what it takes.” Another insider adds, “Jay was involved in the creation of Lemonade and knew every song Bey was going to release. He knew the lyrics; he knew the implications. He had to approve the songs before release. Jay is a very smart businessman…Bottom line is that they are both really smart and they both saw dollar signs… Jay is all about self expression, so he gets it. Beyoncé shares music before it’s released with Jay so he can listen and share his thoughts. When it comes to music, they are very in it together and supportive of each other’s craft.”

Beyonce loves the reaction she’s gotten: “Beyoncé is amazed on how everything turned out. She worked day and night on this. She celebrated with family; Jay was by her side. When Beyoncé put this album together she was aware of the message she was sending out. She knew that people were going to dissect each word. Beyoncé wanted to connect with women’s emotions with this album.”

Their second chance: “They are going to be OK. This is round two. They are determined to make it work and we all believe they can do it.”

The sources E! News spoke to make it sound like Beyonce and Jay-Z are a lot stronger right now than they were two years ago BUT, you know, marriage is hard work especially when you have people throwing themselves at you like, pretty much always. And Bey and J know their brand…and they love the money that comes with that.
