Cape Town - With all the "I do's" in Hollywood that never seem to last longer than a year we can't be blamed for thinking that it is impossible for two celebrities to get into a marriage that actually lasts.

Here are a few celeb spouses who defy all myths about two celebrities living in wedded bliss.

1) Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman:

The pair tied the knot in 2006 and despite their clashing schedules they manage to carve out quality time with their two girls. Urban has said that he flies every weekend with the kids to where ever his wife is filming so that the girls will remain close to their mother.

2) Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner:

These two Hollywood actors have been married since 2005 and have three kids. With their under the radar lifestyle the couple has stood the test of time and prove to many that two celebs can be in a long lasting marriage amidst all the hype.

3) Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani:

The couple tied the knot in 2002. With their three sons the couple continue to be the envy of many celebs who just cant seem to keep it together. They are a great example especially to the younger generation of Hollywood celebs.

4) Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones:

This couple has had their share of tabloid rumours flying about the state of their marriage, but they seem to rebuff those stories time and time again. Married since 2000 this Hollywood couple is still going strong.

5) David Beckham and Victoria Beckham:

The power couple said their I do’s in 1999. What some may have thought would be another one year celeb marriage has transformed the two into one of the most admired celeb couples in the world. The Beckhams have four kids.

6) Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick:

This couple celebrate their 14th anniversary this year. They prove that it is possible for two celebs to make a marriage work long-term.

7) Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith:

The Smiths have credited the success of their relationship to their 'open' marriage policy. It clearly works for them and their marriage remains intact despite many rumours of trouble in paradise.

8) Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick :

The couple has been married since 1988! An impossible possibility in La-la-land. Many celebs should ask the Bacons what  their secret to marriage bliss is.

9) Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson :

In 1988 this couple said "I do" and they meant it. They are proud parents of two sons. Working in an industry where one’s personal life is bound to become public knowledge this couple shies away from the spotlight as soon as the director shouts "cut"!

10) Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne:

The English rocker and his TV host wife have been married since 1982! They have a son and two daughters together. The couple have in recent months had some marriage troubles but despite all their struggles their marriage still remains solid.
