3 Strong Celebrity Couples We Love

Celebrities relationships are fodder for gossip magazines and wild speculation, but readers often forget that they are real people in a real relationships. They face problems and triumphs just like every other couple. Below, GetLusty for Couples' Rachael Milton lists just a few of our favorite strong couples (that happen to also be celebrities).

* * *

Roseanne Barr & Johnny Argent

You might remember Roseanne from her show. Well, those days are over. Roseanne Barr and boyfriend since 2003 Johnny Argent are such a great celebrity couple. They met when Johnny Argent submitted to a writing contest hosted on Roseanne's website. What an interesting way to connect with someone, right?

They are an older couple that stand together as they face the realities of a changing sex life due to menopause, a working relationship, and media attention. Their support of each other's work is evident--crucial to any successful relationship. Johnny supported Roseanne's decision to run for President of the United States and Roseanne supports Johnny's work as a musician and artist.You can watch Roseanne and Johnny together on their macadamia nut farm in the hilarious reality show "Roseanne's Nuts".

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi

Ellen and Portia were married in 2008 but have been dating since 2004 when they met backstage at an awards show. As a highly visible lesbian couple, they are seen as role models for gay couples across the world. They are both successful in their individual careers and are both so funny! Portia de Rossi made a spoof video about the backlash on her marriage from those who supported Prop. 8 that I believe shows how Portia and Ellen view their relationship: unapologetic and full of love.

Those qualities also apply to their choice to remain childless, which came under media scrutiny. In her 2011 book Seriously... I'm Kidding Ellen wrote, "We thought about it. We love to be around children after they've been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don't want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house." Their relationship is strong because they realize their relationship works best for them and not about succumbing to the pressures of the media and public.

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta Jones

Married in 2000, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones have two kids together and are working together to pull through some tough years, as all long-term couples will have to do. In 2010, Michael announced that he was battling advanced throat cancer.

Although he is now cancer-free, the stress for both the patient and the loves ones can be powerfully upsetting. I'm glad that their family made it through the experience intact.

In fact, they renewed their vows on their 10 year wedding anniversary! Michael and Catherine are an example of a couple that has gone through illness and family drama but stuck together and come out on the other side even stronger than before.
