There can be no denying that Hollywood is a place where relationships and marriages generally go to die. However, there are plenty of exceptions to the rule. We take a look at some of the celebrity couples out there who, through all of the glitz, glamor, and drama, managed to stand the test of time.

Michael J. Fox & Tracy Pollan – 30 Years

Hollywood may break some people up, but it also sometimes brings people together – like Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, who actually first met on the set of Family Ties, where they played love interests Allen and Ellen.

They even had some kissing scenes for the show, but they didn’t fall in love right away! It wasn’t until 1987 when they starred together on the film, Bright Lights, Big City, that they realized they could be the couple they kept playing in the movies.

Dolly Parton & Carl Dean – 52 Years

It was love at first sight for Carl and Dolly. They met when she was only 18, and he was 21, it was Parton’s first day in Nashville, they met outside of a laundromat – their love story sounds like a country song. Two years later, the couple tied the knot.

The only people that attended the wedding were Parton’s mom, the preacher, and his wife. Although the couple does not have kids, they love spoiling their nieces, and Parton’s famous goddaughter, Miley Cyrus.

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne may be one of Hollywood’s most controversial couples – but through thick and thin, the couple has stayed together. Sharon met Ozzy when she was 18, while working for her father, who was managing Black Sabbath at the time.
