Have you ever wished you had someone else's life, even just for a few hours? As much as it would be immature to think that some people's lives are perfect in comparison to ours, those people seem to have so many good things going their way. The people we often envy are those who clearly make more money than we do, and can, therefore, afford to pay for things only the rest of us can only dream of.
However, it's important for us to remember the title of the late Notorious B.I.G's hit single Mo Money Mo Problems which, if it has any truth in it, should make us appreciate whatever we already have even more.
This article is about how attractive the lives of the wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of some of our leading sports superstars are. These women live like celebrities, despite the fact that most of them are only famous for that. To marry a professional athlete is a huge accomplishment for any woman, owing to how masculine and fit these men usually are, in addition to their popularity. Furthermore, most of the great athletes make a lot of money, and we all know how nice it is to date someone who has money.
To say the least, a rich and famous athlete is the best kind of man out there, and if he's faithful, his wife or girlfriend had better be thankful every day of her life for him. Here are some Instagram photos of some of the top WAGs in the industry, whose lives most women wish they had. Some of these women are rich and successful owing to their talents or business sense, while others have the full-time job of taking care of their families, which is also a form of success.
15 Gabrielle Union Is Chilling Out With Her Husband
In this image, we can see Gabrielle Union with her husband of almost four years Dwyane Wade in what appears to be a luxurious limo. This ride, among other luxurious goodies, is one of the perks of being the wife of a pro-NBA basketball player, and it's one of the reasons many women are jealous of Union.
Union is in her second marriage with Wade since she was previously married to Chris Howard, a now-retired professional American football running back, and had previously dated Jason Kidd, who is currently a professional basketball coach and former player. It would be safe to conclude that Union is into athletes, and what's even more interesting is that all of them are younger than she is.
In addition to having the ability to attract men any woman would die to have, Union is a very successful actress, having appeared in numerous great films and is currently the star of the hit series Being Mary Jane.

Have you ever heard of Viktoria Varga? If you haven't, you should probably look into who she is, because when you follow her on Instagram, you'll realize just how exciting the life of a soccer superstar's girlfriend can be. Viktoria was born in Hungary in 1991, so she'll be 27 years old this June. Viktoria is a swimwear model who has worked for agencies such as Look Models, Free Faces Management, and others.
She makes it to this list because she's Graziano Pellè's girlfriend, an Italian pro soccer player who plays for Shandong Luneng and Italy's national team. These two have been dating for a few years now and she has clearly been enjoying her life much more than the average human being should. In this image, we see the couple enjoying themselves in a swimming pool at the top of what should be a very luxurious hotel. Viktoria's Instagram is full of images of herself in different luxury hotels around the world, a lifestyle only WAGs and millionaires can afford.
13 Melissa Satta Is Cruising Around In Style
This is a picture of Melissa Satta on what appears to be a private yacht out at sea. Since we can see she's in a towel, we can conclude that she's on an amazing holiday with her soon to be husband Kevin-Prince Boateng, and is probably relaxing in the sun all day long.
Boateng is a professional football player who plays for the German team Eintracht Frankfurt and plays internationally for Ghana since his father is from Ghana while his mother is German. Boateng has had a very interesting career, because he's a very good player, but has made very questionable decisions in the past. Melissa here is an Italian TV presenter who was born in the United States. Her relationship with Boateng is the reason she makes it to this list, and the amazing life she appears to be living, judging from her Instagram photos, is one any woman would want.
12 Shakira Is Celebrating With Her Man
Very few women in the world can pose for photos while holding prestigious trophies like the UEFA Champions League trophy, the La Liga trophy, or even the Copa del Rey trophy pictured here. Shakira belongs in the special category of the women who can do this and a lot more, partly because she's an extremely successful singer and songwriter, and also because she's Gerard Pique's partner.
In addition to what makes Shakira so famous, her song "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" was and still is the best-selling World Cup song. The song has over 1.7 billion views on YouTube, making it one of the most viewed songs ever, and has over 10 million downloads. She has won numerous awards, she's one of the best-selling singers of all time, and she's the 27th greatest leader in the world according to Fortune.
These two got into a relationship back in 2011, after meeting for the first time on her "Waka Waka" music video the year before.

If you love soccer, then you're definitely familiar with the amazing player called Lionel Messi. With him is his beautiful wife Antonella Roccuzzo, and they're expecting their third born child towards the end of February or early March. Although these two got married last year, they've been in a relationship since 2008, and they've known each other since 1992 when Messi was just 5 years old.
Although everyone has his or her own opinion concerning whom the best soccer player in the world is, Messi is arguably the best, and would only come in second to Cristiano Ronaldo when he's not at his best. He has led Barcelona to all the prestigious titles in Europe and the world and has led Argentina to three consecutive finals including the 2014 World Cup. Although people don't know so much about Antonella, every woman would want to be her. She's married to the best soccer player in the world, a man who has been faithful to her for over a decade, and a man who has made it possible for her to live like royalty.
10 Pilar Rubio Is Lounging On The Water
This is a picture of Pilar Rubio and her partner Sergio Ramos, most probably on a cruise. Judging by the way Sergio is holding her, this image must have been taken when she was pregnant with one of their two sons, Sergio or Marco. Although we can hardly see the vessel they're on, there's no doubt they're on a private yacht, enjoying themselves out in the open seas.
A very small percentage of people on the planet can actually afford to rent a yacht for a few hours, let alone own one, and the great thing about belonging to the WAGs community is that such luxuries are normal. These women have access to the very best of what the world has to offer, thanks largely to their boyfriends or husbands.
Pilar Rubio is a TV presenter and reporter for La Sexta, whereas Sergio is a professional soccer player who is the captain of both Spain's national team and Real Madrid. Sergio is considered one of the best defenders we have today and has won numerous awards throughout his career so far.

In addition to helping his team win the championship, he scored goals in 11 consecutive Premier League games, breaking a previous record held by Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Vardy is also a member of the English national team, and this is evidence of just how good he is.
