Luckily for Steph and Ayesha Curry, they disregarded a recommendation from Gabrielle Union that would've seem them split prior to getting married. 

That bit of info came up last week, during an Instagram Live session, in which Union, the Currys, and Dwyane Wade all participated.

As she recalled, Union had advised a younger Curry couple that they should see other people rather than bog themselves down in a serious relationship while young. 

"I was like, 'You guys, the likelihood of this working out is very low and you should just break up now and have sex with other people,'" Union revealed, as transcribed by USA TODAY. "I used different language but is that not what I told y'all both?"

Responding with a laugh, Ayesha added to that by saying "You looked at me and said, 'How old are you? OK…' " 

Wade then apologized for that decade-old advice courtesy of "the Wade family." He added "That's not who we are anymore."

The Currys met while still teenagers in a North Carolina church youth group. They got married in 2011 when Stephen was 23, and Ayesha was 22. That might've been common prior to...let's go with the 1950s, but is now about the time one would attempt to launch an influencing career. 

Anyway, Union has changed her tune on the Currys' marriage, though to others in a similar spot she said she still might give out the same advice.

"Listen, you guys are unicorns," Union elaborated. "There are very few people that I've met who have been consistent. I mean, I've known you guys well over a decade. There's a lot of people who talk about faith and there's a lot of people who talk about moving the culture forward, but something isn't real somewhere, right? And when people are like, 'Are (Ayesha and Stephen) really – are they real?' I'm like, 'Yes, they're some of the only people that I've met who have been consistent...'

I wish more people understood that it is possible to be people of faith and also wanting to move the culture forward," she added. "Those two things don't have to exist separately. You guys do a beautiful job of being exactly who you claim to be."

Exception not withstanding, it's still sound advice for just about every other first-rounder ever.
