Today, a lasting marriage is rare. It is no longer surprising when young people play a magnificent wedding, and after a couple of months, they scatter, unable to withstand the hardships and boring life.
And if in Soviet times divorce was a condemned act, today it has ceased to cause resonance and opposition from society. Even marriage itself is slowly turning into something optional, and many couples prefer to live under the same roof without formalizing the relationship. Is it correct? Here everyone decides for himself.
The more admirable are the couples who have lived together for more than a dozen years. And today we will talk about the stars who got married once and, it seems, forever. Any problems made their unions only stronger and happier.
