These Celebrity Couples Were Crazy in Love in 2008 and Look at Them Now

Still going strong.

Ten years is obviously a long time to be in a relationship, but it’s even longer when we’re talking a famous couple. Seriously, every time you turn around, a celebrity couple you were rooting for announces a split, then we’re all screaming “LOVE IS DEAD!” as if the break up is an excuse for us to eat a pint of ice cream.

But not all couples in the limelight are headed for doom. In fact, some of our favorite couples that were together a decade ago are still going strong. It’s not to say that their relationships were perfect or that they didn’t go through any changes, but it’s honestly pretty amazing. Take a look at these couples back in 2008 and see how far they’ve come.
