Celebrity Marriages That Have Made It Longer Than We Ever Thought They Would

When celebrities get together, there are usually two distinct groups of people (excluding the people that pop into articles about the couple to declare they do not care about said couple): those that really believe they’ll take the relationship the distance and those that start placing bets on when they’ll go full Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. No one is ever right about who’ll make it and always surprised about who doesn’t stay together forever.

These celebrities — and I hope I don’t jinx them — have surpassed all expectations concerning keeping a celebrity marriage together for a significant amount of time. I mean, 10 years is practically a Golden Anniversary in Hollywood Years, so some of these couples have been hitched so long that there isn’t a special metal for it.
