Behind all the lights, camera and action scenes in Hollywood lies more than a few love stories worth celebrating.

While celebrity breakups and divorces may dominate the news cycle, there are plenty of couples who are proving everlasting love is possible in the public eye.

For some couples like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson or Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, their secret to having happy marriages is the simple fact that they share a solid friendship above all else.

"We really, really enjoy spending time with each other more than anybody else," Gabrielle shared with Ocean Drive. "If you have the chance to marry your best friend, I would highly recommend it."

Others insist that long, healthy relationships do take time and work. The good times, however, will always outweigh the rough patches.

"Let me assure you it hasn't been all roses the whole journey," Candace Cameron Bure recently shared on social media when celebrating her 20+ year marriage with Valeri Bure. "There have been several tough years, in a row, ups and downs, bad attitudes and bad decisions, but we've persevered. We rode them out. We loved each other through them. We kept the focus; God's glory. We are both better for it."

As Summer Love Week comes to an end at E! News, we decided to celebrate some of our favorite couples who have kept the spark alive under the public eye.

Perhaps their quotes, experiences and bonds illustrated in our gallery below may help in your current or future relationship.
