There’s no doubt that the ethics and morals of our society have seen a drastic change toward dissolution in the past few decades and various forms of entertainment (film, music, and TV) have had a significant impact on this development. Getting a divorce nowadays is seen as a sign of independence (particularly for women) instead of failure and lack of dedication to making a marriage work. Gossip magazines and websites make tons of money reporting who broke up and who divorced in the showbiz industry, and there are even betting houses where you can bet on which celebrity couple will divorce or break up next.
However, there are always exceptions to the rule and on our list today we have 25 celebrity marriages who buck against the trend toward divorce, thus showing everyday people strong examples of happy married couples with children.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest
Jamie Lee Curtis, according to herself, has always put her family first and judging from her career she seems to be telling the truth since she hasn’t been in many films or TV shows compared to other actors and actresses of her generation. She has been married to actor, producer, and musician Christopher Guest for over thirty years and they have two adopted children together.
Denzel and Pauletta Washington
Denzel Washington is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished and talented actors of his generation, but according to him his ultimate dream project is his kids and family. He has been married to his wife, Pauletta, for thirty-one years and they have four children.
Chevy Chase and Jayni Luke
The famous comedian had been married twice before he met Jayni. In Jayni Luke he obviously found everything he was looking for in a woman and they have been together for the past thirty-two years and have three children. Hopefully their vacations are not as crazy as the Griswold family’s, though.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman
They might not be the most beautiful celebrity couple out there but Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, other than being funny as hell, have also been happily married for the past thirty-two years and have three children together.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
She is arguably the greatest and most awarded actress in the history of American cinema. He’s just a humble sculptor who hasn’t earn any awards or lots of money during his career but apparently has the keys to Meryl’s heart as he has been married to her since 1978 and they have four children together.
