Celebrity couples don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to happily ever after, but there are some who seem to be making it work despite the trappings of fame and fortune. These real-life love teams have been together for what seems like a lifetime in showbiz years (any longer than 52 weeks deserves a standing ovation), and they have weathered enough controversy that would have put most relationships out to pasture. Check them out below!
1. Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes
As the two biggest stars of their network, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes make a picture-perfect couple. However, beyond their mutual admiration is mutual respect for each other’s careers. In an interview with PEP.ph, the hunky actor says that he abides by one personal rule. “Hindi ako makikialam sa kung anong career decisions niya, kung anong career path niya (I am not going to interfere with her career decisions, her career path),” he says, adding that he will support Marian 100 percent as long as she is happy, and she believes that the project would be good for her. While they apparently have no immediate plans to tie the knot, Dingdong hopes that Marian would be the one. We hope so, too!
2. Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo
It’s not easy to keep private lives private when you’re in showbiz (or when you have Instagram or Facebook in general), but couple Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo seem to managing it just fine. Granted, they’re both quite the public figures and understand that not all aspects of their relationship could be kept under the radar, but Bea says that there are some details that they still keep to themselves, reports PEP.ph. Perhaps it’s all about knowing how to keep a low profile and, according to the She's the One actress, thinking twice before hitting “post.”
3. Carla Abellana and Geoff Eigenmann
Even after three years, it appears that Carla Abellana and Geoff Eigenmann are still as in love with each other as ever. In an interview with PEP.ph, Carla says that Geoff has never stopped making an effort to show her that he loves her. Having just celebrated their anniversary last month, the My Husband's Lover actress says that her boyfriend put a lot of thought into his present, as it was something that she clearly did not expect. It's nice to know that after what seems like a lifetime in showbiz years, there are still wonderful surprises in the relationship.
