They Are Still Standing the Test of Time: Nothing Can Tear Apart these Celebrity Couples

January 22, 2014

After seeing so many couples split up this year, we’ve decided to compile a list of the most famous celebrity couples who have been able to withstand the test of time and keep their marriages/partnerships going strong.

1. The Queen and Prince Philip


After 65 years together, the Queen still adores Prince Philip. The two started talking to one another at the age of 8, becoming friends at a young age. They have witnessed a lifetime of happiness and sadness, living long enough to meet their great grandchild this year.

2. David and Victoria Beckham


This British power-couple is one of the most glamorous and good-looking celebrity couples out there. The two met back in 1997, while Victoria was still with the Spice Girls. They have been together for 15 years now, with four beautiful children, and to this day Victoria claims that her husband makes her feel the same way he did the first time they met.

3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale


Hollywood and all that comes with being a celebrity makes it very difficult for couples to stay together, so it is a real testament to their love that Gwen and Gavin have managed to make it past their 10th anniversary. Gwen is expecting the couple’s third child this year, with both parents overjoyed at the prospect.

4. Bruce Forsyth and Wilnelia


This was initially a very controversial couple, with everyone speculating that the relationship was just a phase for them both, mostly due to the 30-year gap. However, they managed to prove the world wrong, as this couple has managed to stay together for 30 years.

5. Sting and Trudie Styler


Sting and Trudie have been very open about their relationship throughout. In a drunken rant, Sting let out that the couple incorporated yoga into their sex life, which is how they kept things interesting for each other. They have four children together and the couple has been happily married for over 30 years.

6. David Bowie and Iman


This gorgeous couple has been married 21 years now, and their initial meeting was a chance blind-date, which turned into a lifelong romance. Iman recently said in an interview that to this day, David still ties her shoes for her, so this is the go-to couple for learning how to keep the spark alive.

7. Coleen and Wayne Rooney


This is a fairytale romance, as the couple began as high school sweethearts. They grew up in Liverpool together and started dating when they were 16. The couple got married in 2008 and though they have had more than their fair share of scandals, they have always managed to work through their differences. They have one child together.

8. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne


The couple met in 1987 when Ozzie was still with his first wife, and under a haze of drugs and alcohol. The two fell in love and 23 years later, they are still together, with two children from their marriage.

9. Elton John and David Furnish


Elton met David in 1993 at a party at his house. The two instantly hit it off and have been together for 12 years now. They have two sons together and their relationship was formalized in a civil ceremony in Windsor in 2005. Though there have been many rumors about the couple splitting-up over the years, especially while Elton was trying to overcome his drug abuse issues, the couple powered through it all.

10. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow


This fiercely private couple rarely lets any information about their relationship leak to the press. Gwyneth opened up in a recent interview, saying that even after ten years, they are still best friends. They have two children together, Apple and Moses.
