10 Shockingly Long Celebrity Marriages
Every now and then, we hear about the most recent celebrity break-up. It is a Hollywood phenomenon that celebrity marriages don’t last long. Whether it’s the pressure, distance or lack of time that separates them in the end, we’re not sure, but it’s almost bound to break at some point. However, from time to time, a couple manages to stand the test of time and beat the odds.
Take a look at these 10 couples that are still going strong:
1. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
The couple met during the filming of Will’s TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1990. They instantly hit it off but only as friends. Jada didn’t really dig the funny guy vibe. But Will was persistent – so persistent that he managed to wear her down 5 years later!
When they started dating, they immediately knew they were meant to be together, and after 2 years they tied the knot in a sweet secret ceremony attended only by their closest friends and family.
Ever since, they have been one of the most enduring couples in show business, they work on projects together and still manage to keep their family happy and healthy. They have two kids, Jaden and Willow, and they strongly believe in family values. They would rather give up everything else than split up. And even with all the rumors of the two having affairs and getting a divorce, they laugh it off every time and know their marriage is stronger than any gossip.
They have been married for almost 17 years and there are no signs of the two of them splitting up.
