Music icon Elton John and his filmmaker husband, David Furnish, were some of the very first voices behind civil partnerships in the UK. In 2014, they decided to make it official and legalized their marriage – after being together for nearly two decades.
The same-sex couple is separated by a 15-year age gap, which means they had two different fights to fight when it came to public opinion. But the two are just too adorable together to separate!
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander
The way these two met was like something pulled straight out of a fairytale, or in this case – a movie. The couple was first introduced on the set of "The Light Between Oceans", an adorable love story about a lighthouse keeper and his wife. However, according to Vikander, they didn’t actually speak to each other for the first several times.
Vikander may be 11 years younger than her husband, Michael, but let’s face it, the two are both incredibly good-looking. The stars tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in 2017 and have been happily married ever since.
Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne
Liam Payne from One Direction met his future wife Cheryl Cole in 2009, on the set of 'X-Factor', on which Liam was performing and Cheryl was sitting in a judge’s seat. Long story short, she was impressed, and the two would continue to see each other over the next several years in professional settings. Then, in 2016, the stars started to slowly reveal their blossoming relationship.
Even though Liam is 10 years younger than his girlfriend Cole, it didn't seem to matter much at all in terms of how close they were. Until, of course, it did, and the couple broke up.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
Funnyman Eddie Murphy has a total of 10 children, two of which are with his new wife, model Paige Butcher. The actor had been married twice before, once to the former wife of “Babyface.”
Eddie is 18 years senior to his wife, but you can’t tell by looking at him because he looks incredible for his age! The couple welcomed their second child into the world in 2018 and are still happily married today.
Nicolas Cage & Alice Kim
Actor Nicolas Cage met Alice Kim in 2004 when she was working as a cocktail waitress in a nightclub and 2 months later – they were engaged to be married. Cage, who is 20 years older than Alice, has been married twice before. Sadly, even great things come to an end sometimes.
Although the pair did stay married for a good 12 years, they ultimately ended up getting a divorce in 2016. During their relationship, they had one son – Kal-El. If you think about this one, Kim wasn’t even legally able to order a cocktail when she said, “I do,” as she was just 20 years old and Cage, 40. If that's not a hell of a barrier to break for love, we don't know what is.
