Joy Bryant Says Her Husband Dave Pope Is Supportive and Respectful
Apart from being a famous actress, businesswoman, and fashion model, Joy Bryant is also a happily married woman. She has been married to stuntman Dave Pope since June 28, 2008.
Over the years, the diva has openly gushed about her husband and how he has always supported her.
For instance, she spoke with Us Weekly at 29Rooms' Opening VIP Night in Los Angeles in December 2018 and shared that he lifted her "by not being abusive" but "by being supportive."

She explained that he wasn't a bad-hearted person or abusive. Instead, he was always supportive of her, as he constantly loved her, looked at her as an equal and with respect.
"And listening!" she said, adding another good quality about her husband.
Not just that, the couple is also aware of their respective responsibilities, which has helped them grow individually, too.
"You've got to do your own thing. I mean, two days after our wedding, he went to a job in Morocco and I went to do a pilot in Vancouver and we were apart for three months," she later told Men's Journal in September 2018.
Bryant continued, "Even now, I just got back from being away for two weeks and before that, he was away for two months. There are plenty of people who spend every single day together and hate each other or get divorced."
But the two back each other always — and believe a little bit of time away isn't a bad thing.

Look at Joy Bryant and Dave Pope's Wedding
Bryant and Pope's 2008 wedding was an intimate evening ceremony in The Hamptons.
The wedding took place sometime after the two first met on the set of Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins. They also became engaged in October 2007.
Coming back to their wedding, the pair took their vows in front of their 100 close friends and family members.
Since it was an intimate ceremony, the couple reportedly opted for a relaxed ceremony and reception in the backyard of a friend's home.
However, the actress didn't compromise on her dream of tying the knot on the top of Kilimanjaro. Hence, she asked her artistic friends to lend a creative hand.
Three weeks later, her bohemian wedding day finally became a reality. Located in New York's posh suburb of The Hamptons, the wedding location was reserved a mere week and a half before the big day.
