18 Celebrity Couples Who Proved Marriage CAN Work In Hollywood.


With the recent split of mega stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, many have been left wondering if those with beauty, wealth, and fame can't make it, who can? It’s hard to envision just how hard marriage really is for celebrities as they employ nannies, cooks, cleaners, and drivers to do all the dirty and tiring work regular folks do on a daily basis.

Of course a union is more than just good looks and a huge bank account. Still, people tend to look at the famous as the example of what a happy life is supposed to look like. You would think A-listers would have the world’s best therapist to get them through any crisis.

No need to lose hope on romance being ever-lasting. We have found successful unions that have stood the test of time. Some are happily married while others have chosen to be spiritually married.
