If you had seen my face this morning when the news broke of the latest celebrity divorce — Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, you would not mistake that I was shocked. Though they seem like an odd pairing, sometimes those are the best kinds of relationships and I honestly though this one would stick.
Divorce and break-ups seem to happen a lot in the celebrity world. I don’t know if it’s just that we hear them more than us regular folk, but I do think there is something about their lives that either makes them really quick to marry and divorce.
There are still some celebrity marriages out there that seem to be doing really well. So far they have lasted a while and it would seem extra shocking if they were to announce their divorce any time soon, though I would have had TomKat on this list if I made it yesterday, so really anything can happen.
Click through to see 7 celeb couples that we hope stand the test of time & are so far doing a great job:
Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks 1 of 7These two who are both famous in their own rights have been married since 1988 -- going on 24 years of marriage it would be a HUGE shock if these two announced a split!
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart 2 of 7These two have only been married for 2 years, but have been together since 2002 (10 years!). Despite the age difference, the pair seem to get along great and are busy raising their son, who Calista adopted as an infant in 2001.
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor 3 of 7This funny couple has been together for 12 years -- marrying in 2000. Not only are they married, but they work together too which can always cause additional strain on the marriage.They seem to have a really strong relationship.
David Beckham and Victoria Beckham 4 of 7Married in 1999, this famous couple have had their fair share of tabloid speculation. Their marriage has made it through 4 children, infidelity rumours and both seem to keep their ego in check.
John Travolta and Kelly Preston 5 of 7Another couple who have been through many ups and downs, yet have been married for 21 years. They have survived the death of their son, rumours around sexuality and religion and seem to be stronger than ever.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness 6 of 7Married since 1996, this couple are rarely ever speculated to be in trouble. After 16 years together, a huge spike in Hugh's celeb status and raising their children, I have high hopes for this couple -- even with their age gap.
Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith 7 of 7Will and Jada have been married for 15 years and have been through a lot of break-up speculation. They have been rumoured to be on the verge of divorce a few times, yet have always denied the speculation.
