Celebrity couples rarely last, as they separate as frequently as the rest of us drink coffee. However, there are some couples who have been together for a long time with no sign of breaking up. An interesting fact is they have age differences of a decade or more. Lets take Jay Z and Beyonce for instance they are everyone’s favourite couple and have been together since 2002, when Beyonce was just 20. They married in 2009 and had their first child, Blue Ivy, in 2012. Oh, and there’s a 12-year age gap between them.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
Well, damn. Han Solo and Ally MacBeal can make a good couple. The age gap between them is 22 years; that’s longer than Ariana Grande’s been living. They met in 2002 after Ford spilled a glass of wine on Flockhart’s dress. They got married in 2010 (Ford donning jeans and Flockhart a sundress).
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
The two share the same birthday, on September 25th. This means the age gap is precisely 25 years. They got married in 2000, and have remained together since, even though they have faced some issues like Zeta-Jones’ bipolar disorder and Douglas’ throat cancer.
Celine Dion and Rene Angelil
The two first met in 1980. However, Dion was only 12, 26 years younger than Angelil. They started dating 7 years later, though, when working together. They got married in 1991 and have been together since. The pair struggled with infertility for some years, but finally had children, and their marriage is now stronger than ever.
Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn
Woody Allen proves that you can find love even if you have to cause a scandal doing it. When he started dating Soon-Yi, Woody was still going out with Mia Farrow, who coincidentally (or not) was Soon Yi’s adoptive mother and the mother of three of Allen’s children. The age difference between the two is a whopping 35 years, and the two are quite happily married (until Allen finds someone younger).
If these couples have taught us anything, it’s that love doesn’t care about age. In fact, it doesn’t even care about current relationships. If celebrities can be happy with spouses born from different generations, so can we. Just don’t pull a Woody Allen.
