Even though celebrities are known for their quick relationship turnover, Hollywood's not all divorce and doom.
Yes, over the years some of our favourite A-list couples have split and left us questioning whether love is real. No matter whether you were Team Jen or Team Ange, the whole world was shocked by the Brangelina divorce in 2016, and even more so the next year, when seemingly loved-up couple Anna Faris and Chris Pratt broke up. Oh yeah, and then there was Josh Duhamel and Fergie, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, Adele and Simon Konecki...
But we're not here to dwell on the negatives. For every sad celeb break-up, there's another inspiring, successful love story (or thereabouts, anyway). Take everyone's favourite actor and nicest guy ever, Tom Hanks – did you know he's been married to his wife Rita Wilson since 1988? That's longer than J-Biebs has even been on the planet. Or that supremely talented actress and Oscar nominee Amy Adams has been with her husband since before she found fame? Ditto for Meryl Streep, who back in 1978, married a sculptor instead of another famous actor. Unheard of!
Emily Blunt and John Krasinki also deserve a shout-out, as the loved-up couple celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary this summer. Plus, have you heard some of the things RuPaul has said about his beau? It'll melt even the coldest of hearts.
Also, who could forget GLAMOUR cover star Chrissy Teigen and musician John Legend? Any love story that can spark a song as beautiful as All Of Me must surely prove that unconditional love is not dead. Seriously, if they ever break up (touch wood), we'll need at least a day off work to mourn.
So, forget the dismal divorces and bad break-ups, and let these long-term, committed and blissfully happy celebrity partnerships restore your faith in love. These are the famous couples that have found their soulmates, giving us relationship goals for the last decade (or more!).
RuPaul & Georges LeBar
Together: 25 years
Yes, RuPaul Charles is the man behind the hugely-loved RuPaul’s Drag Race, but he's just as successful in his personal life. In fact, he's been in a relationship with Australian rancher Georges LeBar for over 25 years.
"I met Georges right on the dance floor at the Limelight disco at 6th Avenue and 21st Street on his birthday in 1994," RuPaul said in a 2019 interview. "We’ve had our ups and downs and everything in between, and there isn’t a person on this planet I like being around more than him."
They're also very honest about being in an open relationship. "I love him too much to try to put shackles on him," RuPaul told Vogue with tears in his eyes. "Love is free. It’s not that sort of romantic surface thing we all bought into. He is my most favourite person that I’ve met."
Besides, he added: "Gore Vidal said you should never pass up an opportunity to have sex or be on television."
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski
Together: 12 years

Together: 9 years
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes met on the set of the 2012 film The Place Beyond the Pines in which they both starred. Since then, they've been very private about their relationship, but we do know they have two daughter together. In fact, The Place Beyond the Pines was the only red carpet appearance they've ever made together. Perhaps that's the secret to their successful relationship?
Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Together: 11 years
If this pair ever split we'd probably have to take the day off work to stare into a wall. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are proper relationship goals: supportive (did you see that gorgeous tribute he made to her for helping him deal with his anxiety? Sob.), funny and fabulous. The happy pair met in 2010, began dating in 2011, married in 2012, and now have three daughters together.
David & Victoria Beckham
Together: 23 years
World domination was on the cards when David Beckham and Victoria "Posh Spice" Adams started dating in 1997 (they married in 1999). Years in the spotlight haven’t come between Britain’s unofficial royal couple, who now have four children together.
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
Together: 13 years
Is there a relationship in all of celebdom greater than GLAMOUR cover star Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's? We think not. Not only has this relationship inspired one of the most charming love songs of recent times (John Legend's 'All of Me'), but it fills us with joy every day thanks to Chrissy's wit and very funny posts on Twitter and Instagram. They've been together since they met on the set of his 2007 music video for 'Stereo', got married in 2013, and welcomed their daughter Luna in 2016 and son Miles in 2018. Chrissy has also spoken openly about their fertility struggles, and conceiving her children through IVF – so they're funny, lovely and inspiring too.
Will Smith & Jada Pinkett
Together: 35 years

Michelle Pfeiffer & David E. Kelley

Beyoncé & Jay-Z
Together: 18 years
Music’s royal couple, Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z, began dating back in 2002 after collaborating on a number of songs. Fast forward 18 years and they are still owning the music industry, have built a joint empire of over one billion dollars and have three children together. Talk about goals.

Sacha Baron Cohen & Isla Fisher
Together: 18 years
When he’s not being Borat, Ali G, Bruno or any of his other alter-egos, Sacha Baron Cohen is married to Isla Fisher. The pair met at a Sydney party in 2002 and Isla spent three years studying so she could convert to Judaism and marry him. "I will definitely have a Jewish wedding just to be with Sacha. I would do anything – move into any religion – to be united in marriage with him. We have a future together, and religion comes second to love as far as we are concerned," she said before their 2010 nuptials. Fast-forward a decade and they have three children together – Olive, 12, Elula, eight, and Montgomery, four.
Anna Kournikova & Enrique Iglesias
Together: 19 years

Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick
Together: 33 years
Kevin Bacon officially met Kyra Sedgwick on the TV set of Lemon Sky in 1987 (though Sedgwick had seen him perform in a play when she was just 12 years old) and were married a year later. "The time I was hitting what I considered to be bottom was also the time I met my wife, our kids were born, good things were happening. And I was able to keep supporting myself; that always gave me strength," Kevin said of the early years of his marriage.
