Many celebrity and famous long term couples never thought that they will reach the point in which they would call a divorce lawyer, but unfortunately, life is not a fairy tale. There are many couples that served as role models, but today we watch them with some other people and often question ourselves: does true love really exist, or is it just a matter of money and power? Nevertheless, many of them were so young and madly in love, but now when they are older, they realized they want something completely different from their lives, which should be ok, we guess. Some of these couples are with children, while some of them never had a child, but the question remains; what does it need to happen in order to realize that the person you spent 10, 15, or 20 years together is suddenly not the person you want to spend your whole life with? However, make sure to read our list of famous long-term couples that eventually divorced, but please, don’t lose your faith in real love.
