The divorce rate seems to rise year after year, and thanks to the paparazzi, we can always hear or read about all of the failed celebrity relationships taking over the tabloids. Divorce is quite common, especially in Hollywood, but even so, it isn't too difficult to find long-lasting celebrity love stories. Couples like John Travolta and Kelly Preston or Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are just a couple examples that show it is possible for celebrities to grow together in healthy and long-lasting relationships.
Relationships that last longer than 5 years seem to be scarce these days. Whether they're famous couples or your regular every day people, the reality is that separation and divorce happen sometimes early on in relationships or years later. But what about all of the celebrity couples who have been married for years? One can only imagine how difficult it might be when both parties in a relationship are celebrities, it could be tough to devise a system within the relationship that consists of big egos, careers, and quite a bit of time apart. But these couples listed below seem to be great examples of how to make a long-lasting love work in Tinseltown.
Here is our list of Hollywood's longest lasting marriages:
10 Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan - 26 years
9 Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall - 27 years
8 John Travolta and Kelly Preston - 23 years
7 Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick - 26 years
6 Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson - 26 years
5 Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos - 19 years
4 Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith - 18 years
3 Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman - 33 years
2 Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne - 32 years
1 Johnny Cash And June Carter - 35 years
The film Walk the Line starring Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix was based around the couple's relationship. The country music couple first locked eyes while June was on tour with Elvis Presley. A few years later, in July 1956 Carter was tuning her guitar at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry when Cash turned to her and took her hand and said, "I've always wanted to meet you." The two married 12 years later, after years of courtship on March 1st, 1968 and had one child together. They became partners on stage and in life up until June's death in 2003, Cash died just four months after June passed away.
