Perhaps today’s most talked-about couple, Beyoncé and Jay Z started dating in around 2000, when Bey was 19 and Jay Z was 31. Now, 18 years and a whole lot of infidelity rumors later, the couple is standing strong and has three gorgeous children together. As Beyoncé told Oprah in 2013, “I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man… Just to have someone who you just like is so important, and someone [who] is honest.” Meanwhile, Jay Z has told CNN of Beyoncé, “She’s my soulmate.”

David Beckham knew Victoria was his soulmate before he’d even met her. After seeing the Spice Girls’ video for “Say You’ll Be There,” he pointed to Victoria and told his friend: “That girl there? That’s the girl I’m going to marry.”

When they finally did meet in the Manchester United player’s lounge, David plucked up the courage to ask for Victoria’s number. She wrote it down on a London to Manchester plane ticket, and he’s kept it to this day.

Jada recently revealed the secret behind her 21-year relationship with Will Smith (and no, it is most definitely not swinging).

“I really think that Will and I have amazing chemistry on a lot of different levels together,” the actress told Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live.

“We love to laugh together, we love to lean together, and we love each other. We just have a good time together. That’s the secret.

“We just really like each other.”

Congratulations to Sarah and Matthew, who celebrated 21 years of marriage earlier this year.

“Monday May 19th, 1997. It flew by Baby. Good golly I love you. XXX, Your wife,” SJP wrote alongside an old-school photo of herself with Matthew on Instagram.

On what keeps their marriage ticking over, the Godzilla actor said simply (via ET): “Communicating. Don’t go to bed mad.”

Hugh and Deborra-Lee met on the set of Corelli in 1995, and married a year later after a whirlwind romance.

The Wolverine star recently revealed that 22 years on and their marriage just keeps getting “better and better”.

“It gets better and better, I can honestly say that,” Hugh said on the Ellen Degeneres Show. “I’m kind of really grateful that I met her before anything kind of happened

“Everything that’s happened in my career and onscreen, offscreen, we’ve always done it together.”

Michelle and Barack Obama – 25 years

Michelle Obama once said that the key to her marriage lasting was being in a “true partnership” with Barack, in which they both respected each other equally.

She said: “It has to be a true partnership, and you have to really, really like and respect the person you’re married to, because it is a hard road. I stopped believing in love at first sight. I think you go through that wonderful love stage, but when it gets hard, you need a little bit more.”

And he said that he’d come to learn how to be “thoughtful,” and “introspective” so that every aspect of their relationship was equal.

He said: “Michelle was trying to figure out, OK, if the kids get sick why is it that she’s the one who has to take time off of her job to go pick them up from school, as opposed to me? What I tried to do was to learn to be thoughtful enough and introspective enough that I wasn’t always having to be told that things were unfair.”

But ultimately for Barack, his love for Michelle can be summed up succinctly: “She is my rock. And I count on her in so many ways, every single day.”

Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith – 25 years

Two years after losing his first wife to cancer, Brosnan met Smith at a party in Cabo San Lucas in 1994. Their first date was in the same place just a few days later. “[We] sat down under the stars and he held my hand,” Smith told People in 2001. “There were fireworks going off over our heads, and Kenny Loggins was singing. We talked until three in the morning… He’s intelligent, captivating and his real beauty emanates from the soul.”

Brosnan has said he is just as head-over-heels for Smith. “I found a great woman in Keely Shaye,” he told People. “Not if I searched a million times over would I find one as good.”

Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks – 29 years

The much-loved Hollywood couple have been married for almost 29 years, and recently described their union as “sacred”.

“Our marriage is really sacred to us… It was just unacceptable.” Tom told Extra when they were hit by divorce rumours last year.

The pair also recently revealed that their relationship became even stronger following Rita’s breast cancer diagnosis in 2015, with the actress telling The Mirror: “Who knew it would make you even closer?

“You never know how your spouse is going to react in a situation like this. I was so amazed, so blown away by the care my husband gave me. It was such a normal, intimate time.”

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn – 35 years

Hollywood golden couple Kurt and Goldie recently celebrated 35-years together.

Describing her fist impression of Kurt, the Snatched star recalled fondly to People: “He was so good-looking, but he had no pretence about him. I could tell right away he wasn’t a womaniser.”

And on how they make it work, she added: “Love, gratitude, compassion, because sometimes every man or every woman will drive their partner crazy. Family. Fun. Laughs. Sex. If you don’t nurture that, and remember, you’re done.”

Meryl Streep and Don Gummer – 38 years

Oscar-winner Meryl rarely speaks about her personal life, including her 38-year marriage to sculptor Don, with whom she has four children.

But she did briefly comment on the seret of their long-lasting relationship to say (via Star 2): “I’m sure that it’s all because of him and his good nature

“And it’s also that he’s an artist, and that helps. It would be difficult to be married to someone who had a different life.”
