Anyone who has seen Blue Valentine knows exactly what I’m talking about, and if you haven’t, do yourself a favor and read Courtney Enlow’s searing account of her own almost Blue Valentine relationship. It’s those couples that are meant to be together, but who are often too self-destructive for one another, or for some reason just can’t make it work.
Now, look: I understand they’re celebrities. They are people we don’t know, and we have no right to really be invested in their relationships. But sometimes, they so represent the kind of fairy-tale relationships that we all want to emulate that, when they break up, it has a silly way of affecting us personally. Don’t ask me why; it just does.
Here are the 5 Blue Valentiniest Celebrity Couples.
