#10: Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson

After saying “I do” way back in 1988, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have become known as one of Hollywood’s longest lasting couples. Hanks was still married to his first wife when the two met on the set of his sitcom “Bosom Buddies,” and they didn’t start seeing each other for a couple of years. Fortunately, they eventually found their way to each other. From Oscar wins to scary health issues, the couple have endured many ups and downs. The pair even both survived COVID-19 diagnoses in 2020, proving that not even the most serious of situations can stop these two from staying together.

#9: Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian

A titan of athletics and a titan of technology, this couple’s meet cute took place poolside at a hotel in Rome, when they each wanted the same table. There must have been some chemistry, as he ended up going to watch her play at the Italian Open. Their relationship developed steadily over the next few months - to the point that Alexis arranged a surprise trip to the exact same hotel a year later. And there he popped the all-important question and Serena gave the desired answer. Fast forward to 2017, when they welcomed a baby daughter and married in New Orleans. Despite their fame and wealth, the couple proves time and time again that their love and family keeps them grounded.

#8: Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick

In an industry where marriages seem to fall apart consistently, these two are an exception. Married since the late 80s, their love affair didn’t exactly start off on the right foot. After seeing him in a play in the 70s, Krya and Kevin didn’t really get to formally meet until they worked together years later. In an interview, Sedgwick even confessed that she wasn’t initially attracted to the “Footloose” star. Eventually, a mutual fondness for each other blossomed and they married, welcoming their first child a year later. Frequent collaborators, they are a Hollywood success story that is decades in the making.

#7: Justin Hakuta & Ali Wong

For years Ali Wong has been entertaining audiences with her quick wit and comedic chops. In 2010, her standup routine also helped her husband fall for her. After meeting at a wedding, Wong invited the entrepreneur to one of her shows and the rest is history. They started a family shortly after marrying in 2015, and Ali often shares stories and jokes relating to married life. This creates a real and relatable narrative that her fans love. Always supportive of her career, Justin has even helped sell merchandise at her shows, which is about as sweet as you can get.

#6: Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka

If you’re a follower of Neil Patrick’s Harris’ social media, you know that family is the center of his world. Raising a family with husband David Burtka, the Tony Award winner is a shining example that in show business marriage can actually work. After meeting through a mutual friend, Harris and Burtka’s first date was to the movies and soon they were seeing each other regularly. They moved to Los Angeles when “How I Met Your Mother” got picked up and eventually became engaged. Since then, the two have shared their love and family with the world, making them some of the most relatable pairs in the biz.

#5: Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade

She’s an award winning actress, he's a retired superstar basketball player and together, they’re one of our favorite couples. The pair met after sharing hosting duties for a Super Bowl party and married in 2014. Despite their happy nuptials, the two found themselves in the middle of a media firestorm following news that Wade had fathered a child during a break from their relationship in 2013. Union addressed the situation in her memoir “You Got Anything Stronger?”, recounting the painful experience. However, they took the complicated situation in stride and became a stronger unit, going onto raise a family together. Their story is an important example of how marriage isn’t always easy but more often than not, it’s worth fighting for.

#4: Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani

Reeling from the grief of their marriages ending, these “The Voice” judges found each other at the perfect time. From colleagues to partners, Gwen Stefani and Black Shelton quickly became everyone's favourite “it” couple when they took things public in 2015. By the time of their public appearance at a 2016 Oscars afterparty, they were clearly an item and have been attached at the hip ever since. Months after releasing their single “Nobody But You,” Shelton popped the question to the “Rich Girl” singer and they tied the knot in 2021. Judging by the way they look at each other after all this time, we have “No Doubt” that these two are meant to be.

#3: Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell

Throughout the years, this couple has kept it real by being open and honest about the challenges of marriage. In fact, when Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell first met, they confessed that there was “no spark.” Once they eventually fell in love, they referred to their intense romance as “toxic,” recalling many fights that led to them breaking up. After marrying at a courthouse in 2013, the newlyweds, who had also become new parents a few months prior, started a new chapter together. A few years later they publicly discussed Shepard’s sobriety, relapse and recovery. Never afraid to state the hard facts, Dax and Kristen are great examples of how marriage doesn’t always have to be perfect in order to work.

#2: Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds

We can’t help but fall head over heels for these two every single time we see them. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of Hollywood’s best couples ever. When the “Deadpool” actor and “Gossip Girl” star met after being cast in “Green Lantern,” both were in different relationships. After later finding themselves single, they reconnected, started dating in 2011 and became engaged shortly after. Keeping things low key, they didn’t even make their red carpet debut until a couple years after their nuptials. Since then they have become a little more public by roasting each other on social media and in the press. Of course, it’s all in good fun and proof that humor is a marker of a solid relationship.
