Celebrity marriages comes and go—some much quicker than others. Of course, there are infamous short term marriages, such as Britney Spears and Jason Alexander, who were united in holy matrimony for a whole two days, Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman, who were husband and wife for six days or Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, who were committed for only 72 days. On the other hand, there’s a good handful of celebrity couples that have stayed true to their marriage vows since the day they said, "I do." Undoubtedly these couples have gone through major ups and downs like all couples do, but their love for one another and their marriage has conquered everything. Here are some Hollywood marriages to take note of:
