Thank the heavens for George Walton Lucas because, without him, the Star Wars movie franchise wouldn’t exist! This genius director married businesswoman Mellody Hobson. She was one of the first African-American women to spearhead the Economic Club of Chicago.
Both of them were creating waves in the world of business and film, and they both have an inner drive for what they love doing. Both partners met at a business conference back in 2006, and George popped the big question later on after seven years together. This isn’t George’s first marriage since he was previously married with three adopted kids.
Princess Sofia Hellqvist
If you’ve ever wondered where your prince charming is, he’s probably at a Swedish nightclub. At least that’s where Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden was when he met reality television starlet and former waitress Sofia Hellqvist. The public was less than impressed with Hellqvist's background, but the Prince did not care or give in to criticism.
Now that's what we call princely behavior! What's the point of being royal if you can't be with the person your heart tells you to be with? Though Prince Carl acknowledges that his wife was “hung out to dry” by the media, the two have become one of the most loved royal couples in the world.
Rapper Eve might be the more famous half of this couple, having been a successful musician since the mid-90s, but her hubby has a high profile of his own. Eve's relationship with Maximillion Cooper received a lot of public criticism, but she has remained by his side and a source of strength for him for over a decade.
Millionaire businessman Maximillion Cooper and Eve married in 2014. The two are blissfully married and are working on expanding their family, welcoming a son in 2022. Before she left “The Talk,” she spoke openly about their struggles to conceive and inspired lots of people in a similar position.
Lady Ruth Williams
Former Botswanian President Seretse Khama and his Lady Ruth Williams had one of the most iconic romances that were also incredibly controversial in the twentieth century. It was so well known that it even became a movie called "The United Kingdom."
The African prince and his Western partner were not loved by the media, and they had to grow their relationship slowly and steadily while facing harsh criticism. She received backlash in the streets of London when walking with her partner, and people booed their relationship. Despite this, the two got married and remained in love until Seretse passed away in 1980.
Many people know David Bowie for his spellbinding contemporary pop music. With classic hits like "Let's Dance" and "Space Oddity," who could forget the spandex-wearing sensation? Bowie has had a long line of romantic partners throughout the years as he explored his identity as a man and as a musician, but the longest-standing relationship of them all was this one.
He married model Iman and they were happily married for 24 years. The two met at a dinner party, and Bowie claims that he was drawn to her almost instantly. The two lived their lives together happily with their kids until Bowie passed away due to liver failure.
