Keeping a long-lasting relationship in Hollywood is quite the challenge, with only a few celebrities staying together for more than a decade. Here are a few celebrities who broke up but eventually tied the knot.
Being in a serious relationship is something special and intricate, which is why couples in the industry who have been together for a long time are applauded by many.

Listed below are some of the most famous and controversial breakups of celebrity couples who ended up walking down the aisle.

"I was really stressed and busy. I was like: 'I'd just be happier single right now.' She pushes me to be funnier not because she's trying to. I think it's just being around her. And to be bolder."

"It wasn't a a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like 'no.'"
