Hollywood marriages nowadays seem like something that’s just waiting to go wrong. However, not all Hollywood marriages have to end in divorce. There is hope yet for the future. It might not be bright, but it’s not completely dark either. There are some love stories and some marriages that are just to die for. They’ll melt our heart and restore our faith in love and old school romance. 2016 was a big year for Hollywood. The world basically took a day off after the Brangelina split and 2017 didn’t go any better either, with the unexpected split between Chris Pratt and Anna Faris. Long-standing couple, Fergie and Josh Duhamel have also decided to call it quits.
Suffice to say, these past few years weren’t the best when it comes to Hollywood couples. Despite the recent splits, there’s still hope for Hollywood couples. Let’s look at a few couples who have been standing strong ever since they first got together:
1. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
Ryan and Blake have been going strong ever since their glory days. If these two ever split, the world will need a break for at least a week, to just stare at the wall and mop about life in general and how we don’t always get what we want. They’re supportive, fabulous, and funny. Ryan even made a beautiful tribute to Blake to thank her for helping him get through his anxiety. They are the so-called ‘cool parents’ that we all wish our own parents to be.
2. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
Their love is one for the books. Their love has given us ‘All of Me’, one of the most famous and heart-warming love songs that exist today. John had written the song for Chrissy during the initial days of their relationship, and they’re still going strong. They have two children now and we can find Chrissy on social media anytime. We’re lucky to be on the receiving end of all her quirky tweets and clapbacks. They met back in 2007 on the set of the music video of ‘Stereo’ and have been together since. They got married in 2013 and had their daughter Luna, back in 2016. They welcomed another baby boy earlier this year. Chrissy is inspiring, funny, and can cook like a professional. There’s no one in Hollywood that can turn down an invite from the Legend household. They know the food is going to be legendary.
3. David and Victoria Beckham
When these two love birds started dating back in 1997, world domination was in the cards. They both come from rich and influential families and people could just see that these two were going to accomplish truly great things together. They weren’t wrong either. They’ve spent years under the scrutiny of paparazzi and other gossip magazines, but none of that has managed to weaken the flame of their love. They are unofficially Britain’s royal couple.
4. Jada Pinkett and Will Smith
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air gave us a lot. They gave us lots of laughs, some tears, and amazing actors. It was also the show that brought Will and Jada together. Jada Pinkett auditioned for the role of Will’s on-screen girlfriend and that’s how they met. Although she didn’t get the part, she did get Will’s heart and they’ve been together ever since. They’ve been married for 20 years now, and have two kids together. Both doing big things in Hollywood.
5. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
This gem of a pair has been married since 1988 and are still going strong. In an interview with Oprah, he told her that Rita could have done better but he’s ever so grateful that she chose him and that he feels as if he won the lottery with her.
