19 Celebrity Couples Who Have Stood The Test Of Time

Diply 25 Apr 2018

Celebrity couples are tricky business.

I mean, raise your hand if you thought Brangelina was going to be together forever! Now raise your hand if you felt personally attacked by their split.

While we have a tendency to focus on the bad, for every Brad and Angelina, there is a David and Victoria Beckham to show us that, contrary what the media tells us, love is not dead.

In fact, these long-term couples prove that love can indeed stand the test of time.

1. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson


Contrary to popular belief, Tom Hanks is not married to Wilson the volleyball from Castaway. In fact, Hanks was most likely picturing his wife's face (Rita Wilson) on that ball while stranded, considering they've been hitched since 1988.

Denzel and Pauletta have been inseparable since 1977, despite her refusing Denzel's proposals more than once. The moral of this love story? If you really love someone, annoy them until they say yes.

This love story is proof that you can have more than one soulmate. After her partner passed away, she fell in love all over again with Don Gummer. They met back in 1978 when he lent her his apartment at a time when she felt like her life was falling apart.

When I picture Hugh and Deborra-Lee seeing each other for the first time, my own heart flutters. Call it love at first sight, but they wed a year after they met in 1996. Of his wife, the actor has said, "She's the greatest thing that ever happened to me and it gets better and better."

The Twitter queen and Grammy Award winner are a couple that I couldn't imagine not being together. Parents to Luna, the two met on the set of John's "Stereo" music video in 2007, and the rest is history! Of Chrissy, John says, "being with someone like her inspires me to be open about my emotions."

The controversial comedian and Australian actress are absolute proof that opposites attract. They're also proof that there's no need to rush into marriage: They waited eight sweet years before tying the knot. Fisher has said that their marriage is like "winning the lottery." How cute is that?

Everyone always loves a good Cinderella story! The actor and bartender reportedly met in 2003 during the filming of Stuck On You. They wed in 2004 and have been stuck on each other ever since. The secret to their marriage? Just being lucky enough to find one another and living a low-key life.

12. David and Victoria Beckham

I'm not sure if there's a couple more stylish than David and Victoria Beckham. They met in 1997, married in 1999, and seem to get even better looking with age. With a big family (they have four kids together) and even bigger careers, if these two split up, there's no hope for anyone.

15. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick

Love is love...even if you're distant cousins. Apparently, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are but haven't let that stop them from being married for 30 years. So, if you love your fourth cousin, twice removed, just let it happen, OK?

I mean, it makes sense that when you marry a supermodel, you never want to let them go. And Cindy apparently felt the same for entertainment mogul and former model, Rande Gerber. The couple has been married and in love since 1998, and even made two model children together.

If the music video to "Drunk in Love" is a snapshot of Beyonce and Jay Z's lives together, I want in. I, along with everyone else, have been crazy in love with these two since the '00s. And while they've had their ups and downs, they prove that love is worth working for.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's partnership proves a lot of things. Once again love is love...and amazing couples do amazing family-themed Halloween costumes. If this isn't enough to make you wanna raise a big family, I don't know what is!

While the pair never married — though, Stedman has asked — they've been together for 32 years! Oprah claims, "we wouldn't still be together*,*" when asked about marriage. And we all know that Oprah knows best.
