Hollywood has seen countless relationships fall apart. Whether the couple separated due to work, a cheating spouse, or differing interests, it feels rare to find long-lasting celebrity relationships. I’ve compiled a list of marriages that have truly stood the test of time. Their relationships may not always be perfect, but these couples seem to have figured out the key to a happy partnership.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith
This charming couple met back when Will Smith was still starring on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” In fact, she had auditioned for the role of Will’s in-show girlfriend and was rejected. Fortunately, it was a role she got in real life. They’ve now been married for nearly 20 years – hardly a small accomplishment!
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
For years, Beyoncé and Jay-Z were thought of as a picture perfect couple. But, things took a dark turn when Queen Bey discovered that she had a cheating spouse. She chronicled her feelings in her Grammy award-winning album, “Lemonade,” and rose to the top of the charts once again. Now, her marriage with Jay-Z seems to be better than ever.
David Bowie and Iman
Although David Bowie is now sadly gone from this world, he had a wonderful marriage with his wife, Iman. Their marriage had lasted from 1992 to 2016, when Bowie passed away. In a recent interview, Iman stated that “leaving their personas at the door” was one big reason why their marriage lasted. She also firmly believes that you have to evaluate your priorities before getting married, otherwise the relationship can suffer.
Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi
This loving couple has been together since 2004, and married since 2008. Despite tabloids declaring that they’re about to divorce, Ellen and Portia are still very happy together. In fact, they just celebrated their 9th year of marriage. That’s an impressive milestone.
