15 Celebs Who Went From Scandalous Affairs To Getting Married

Every single celebrity romance is scrutinized so it is not at all surprising for celebrity affairs to receive just as much negative attention. An extramarital affair is scandalous whether the people involved are stars or not, but it usually ends up one of two ways: the affair is swept up under the rug and the couple moves on with their marriage Bill and Hillary Clinton style or the couple breaks up due to the hurt and scandal of the affair. Still, there is a third outcome which is pretty rare, but does occur. Believe it or not, there actually are some men who come through on that promise to their mistress to leave his wife for her. And believe it or not these affairs have resulted in the perpetrators' next marriage. This adds to both the intrigue and scandal of the affair, especially in the celebrity world.

It is just a complete trainwreck to watch a celebrity go from being in a seemingly happy marriage, to navigating an affair, to ending the original relationship, and then embarking on a new relationship and marriage. There are actually quite a few Hollywood affairs that ended up with the mistress becoming a Mrs. Some of these cases are innocent instances of the right people meeting in the wrong place at the wrong time and others just seem downright wrong— or at least that's how things have been spun in the media.

From the new couples that we have accepted and eventually cherished to those that the public will never abhor, there are plenty of stars who have gone from an affair to a new marriage. These are 15 celeb pairings that went from a scandalous affair to a new marriage.

This doesn't exactly fall under the parameters of a mistress getting married, but this scandalous affair led to a long-term relationship that will live on in infamy forever. Mary Louise Parker was seven months pregnant with Billy Crudup's baby when he left her to date Claire Danes. These two got together in the middle of Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup's eight-year relationship. They met as costars on the movie Stage Beauty and broke up after dating for three years. Even so, it seems like their reputations  will be forever tainted by the affair.

It's so hard to tell what is "right" and what is "wrong" in these very complicated situations. For one thing, none of us will ever be able to know the whole story since we are not actually involved in any of the relationships. There is probably a lot of information that will never come to light and a lot of falsities that will never be corrected. Nevertheless, there is always a media spin on these situations and like it or not there will always be couples who are well liked and those who are vilified. And this is something that is especially true when extramarital affairs are involved.

Ideally, it's nice to think that these are just people who met at the wrong time in their lives, but at the same time there have been plenty of situations that could have been handled with more tact. These couples have weathered the storm of their affairs and now many of them face the greater challenge of remaining together. It will be interesting to see who is in it for the long haul and which duos are going to split (if they haven't already).
