Oftentimes, people think there is no such thing as "forever" in showbiz.
Because of the demands of their jobs, breakups commonly dominate news headlines.
Just last month, four celebrity couples—one pair have been married for five years—had called it quits.
But there still are a number of real-life sweethearts whose marriages have stood the test of time.
And we are featuring 21 of them.
We picked only those who have been together for more than 12 years; both have been celebrities (not politicians); at least one of them is still active and visible in showbiz.
Hence, much as we super admire the enduring marriages of Vilma Santos and Ralph Recto (25 years), Sharon Cuneta and Kiko Pangilinan (19 years), Dawn Zulueta and Anton Lagdameo (17 years), Mikee Cojuangco and Dodot Jaworski (16 years), Harlene and Romnick Sarmenta (16 years), this list does not include them.
