Our Top Five Favorite Valentine Couples
5. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip
You can’t get more in the public eye than royalty! Despite their lives being constantly under the microscope, these two most famous royals have stayed together with poise and grace. They have four children together, and this year they will celebrate their 72nd wedding anniversary. Maybe it’s royal etiquette that keeps them together but they always look so happy, so this is surely a great relationship.
4. Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith
Over twenty years of marriage and this celebrity couple is still going strong. They recently talked about their success on Jada’s talk show Red Table Talks. Although it was not always moonlight and roses, this couple with a blended family was determined to make it work. Brutal honesty and working as a team, or as they refer to themselves, “life partners” is the key to their longevity. Other couples could learn a thing or two from this amazing duo.
3. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
Both Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have mega-hits individually and have been able to maintain a solid relationship for over thirty years! They have never been married but have stayed together for decades. They both have children from previous relationships plus a child of their own together. Perhaps not getting married is their secret for a long relationship. It seems to have worked for them!
2. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
Recently celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary, these two dated for three years before getting married. They have two children together plus two from Hanks’ previous marriage. This couple truly appreciates one another and have a lot of fun together. The romance has never worn off for these two!
1. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
This much talent should not be possible in any single person, and together this power couple has it all! They have been together for over fifteen years and married for four. They have two adorable children together and manage to balance a happy home life with individual successes. Plus, they do it with panache, a serious sense of style, and, of course, humor.
In celebrity news couple getting together and breaking up is the norm. We love that these strong couples have beaten the odds to continue in their happy relationships while maintaining their star status.
