Happy Valentine's Day, beautiful readers! And in case you're one of those poor, miserable suckers who totally hates this day of love, greeting cards and candy hearts (ya know, like we used to!) we hope to inspire a bit of romance in your cranky selves.
By looking at some of Hollywood's greatest love stories, of course! And even though the juicy breakups are the ones that grab headlines (if one more couple like Heidi Klum and Seal busts up, we're screaming!), instead, we're focusing on these 20 fab relationships that have lasted:
And before you even ask: No, robsten didn't make the cut. Sorry ‘bout it.
These are couples who have stuck with their "Till death do us part" vow until, well, death (a rarity in T-town these days). Or are still alive and kickin' and showing other unlucky-in-love stars that it is possible to find your perfect match.
From classic couples like Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward to current power duos like Jay-Z and Beyoncé, these 20 pairs—either married or just committed long-term—have had their fair share of ups and downs but, hey, what good relaysh hasn't?!
So grab some tissues (in case you get misty-eyed, duh), get ready to say "Awww!" and start clicking through our Greatest Hollywood Love Stories gallery! And then go smooch someone you love, 'kay?
