You might think you and your partner make a super couple, but chances are you didn't make Time's list of the world's most elite power couples. Hailing from the fields of entertainment, politics, and predictably, technology, Time runs down the couples it deems most powerful who are currently inhabiting this planet, including:

  • Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen: Sure, they've got looks and more looks, but at a combined net worth of $540 million, they're relative paupers on this particular list.

  • Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner: According to financial filings this year, the elite White House couple is worth somewhere between $207 million and $762 million.
  • Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan: The Facebook founder made his first billion dollars by age 23, and a decade later he and his physician wife are worth $74.2 billion.
  • Beyonce and Jay-Z: Worth a combined $1.16 billion, the power musicians can afford to raise those three kids.
