25 Surprising Long Hollywood Marriages That Have Stood The Test Of Time

Hollywood is probably not your go-to place when it comes to relationship goals – the term brings to mind one too many high profile divorces turned ugly. As a true-blue fangirl, I know how it feels when couples you worship do not end up happily ever after, but unfortunately that has been the norm in Hollywood, with celeb couples getting divorced because of “irreconcilable differences” even when the world thought they were perfect for each other.

Even though Hollywood marriages sound pretty depressing, there remain star couples who reinstate our belief in love and have sustained some of the longest relationships till date.

Hugh Jackman is considered to be one of the hottest men on earth, and with a title like that, you would think that it is difficult to maintain a healthy, happy, and secure relationship.

And what do you think is their mantra to keep their relationship strong all these years? Never being apart from each other more than 2 weeks.

When one of the hottest men on earth is married to someone who is equally hot, you would expect one of them to cheat or something to go wrong. But David and Victoria, who is fondly known as Posh Spice, have proved everyone wrong with their 17 years of marriage and four gorgeous kids, despite numerous rumors over the years about David cheating on Victoria with one of their nannies. Of course, there was no confirmation of it, but seeing the couple brave the odds and stick it out, is something rare when it comes to celeb couples. When asked how he does it, David Beckham said, “She’s my best friend. Would you want to hurt your best friend?” Sigh!
