We live in a world where it can sometimes feel like love is dead and nobody stays together anymore. Even couples that we were once so sure would last a lifetime — cough, Ben and Jen, cough, Gavin and Gwen, 'achoo! — have wilted before our very eyes in recent years.

Sometimes things just don't work out; fine.

But lest you start to believe that things never work out, here is a list of seven celebrity couples who have all unlocked the secret to long-lasting romance and survived past the 10-year mark — a pretty big deal, especially in these romantically volatile times. Don't give up on love!

1. The British Lovebirds: David and Victoria Beckham

Years together: 19

Why they make the list: Victoria once said this: "We've got matching dogs, matching watches, similar wardrobes, matching Jags." These are the words of a woman who is clearly in a relationship with her soulmate. 

2. The Teen Dreams: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.

Years together: 16

Why they make the list: The look on SMG's face in the above picture pretty much says it all. 

3. The Lovestruck Ladies: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

Years together: 12

Why they make the list: Ellen once dunked Portia into a tank of water on her show, and Portia was chill about the whole thing. The secret to making a relationship last surely isn't all about being chill with dunk tanks, but that's probably a big part of it.

4. The Power Pair: Beyoncé and Jay Z

Years together: 14

Why they make the list: They survived the cheating opus that is Beyoncé's Lemonade. Even Becky with the Good Hair couldn't put an end to their union.

5. The (Literal) Daddies: Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

Years together: 10

Why they make the list: This 2012 episode of Oprah's Next Chapter, in which their twin babies cry a lot and it's adorable. 

6. The Unsung Heroes: Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova

Years together: 15

Why they make the list: Because you probably didn't even realize they were still together — and yet they are! Side note: Kournikova's Instagram is a true diamond in the rough. She sometimes posts videos of herself joyously dancing to her man's music and it's v. cute. 

7. The Untouchables: Brangelina

Years together: 11

Why they make the list: They are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Enough said.
