HOLLYWOOD—It really has been a rough year for celebrity breakups. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards. Couples who you thought were forever, went suddenly kaput.
Ben Affleck and his sexy ex-nanny Christine Ouzounian, 28, was seen giving her former boss a bottle of champagne on July 17 during a late-night rendezvous outside the “Gone Girl” star’s new Los Angeles pad.
Affleck, 42, and his Hollywood actress wife, Jennifer Garner, 43, separated after Ouzounian began caring for the couple’s three kids in the spring. According to published reports, Affleck and the nanny have been photographed together repeatedly since then, including on June 30 in the Bahamas. She was fired the very next day after the photo surfaced. Affleck and Jennifer were married back in 2005 and have two daughters and a son-Violet Anne, 9, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 6, and Samuel, 3. Jennifer was spotted in Atlanta this past weekend.
Hold on! While you may mourn the loss of Miranda and Blake’s country love or Bennifer 2.0’s decade-long marriage, you must find hope in the happily together. Denzel and Pauletta Washington have been married for 32 years. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been married for 27 years and are still going strong. Another Hollywood couple, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, have been married for 25 years. David Bowie and Iman have been married for 23 years.

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, married for decades and so adorable together. Another couple married for decades is Christopher Guest and Jamie Lee Curtis. He is known for his directing and inherited the Barony of Haden-Guest and became the Right Honourable Fifth Baron Haden-Guest of Saling. This makes Jamie a Lady.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening have been married for 20 years. He went from womanizer to a one-woman man; Warren ditched his lady’s-man ways when he met Annette on the set of “Bugsy”, and the two eventually marred back in 1992. Don’t believe me? Ask Axl Rose. The two have four children and have remained together while many predicted Beatty could never do the long-term family thing.
While marriage may be great for some, just being together is good enough for Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The couple has been together for 30 years. A lasting relationship isn’t just about marriage, its about communication, understanding and compatibility.
