Marriages in Hollywood are seemingly complicated, and often fleeting. Some famous people, however, have really beat the odds with their relationships by not only staying with one person but doing so after getting together with them so young. There are a few couples who met young and stayed together, and a few where just one party was in their late teens or early 20s and met their soulmate regardless of any age gap. All too often some have been told they were “too young” to be in love, but it sure didn’t matter for these celebrities:
11. Victoria and David Beckham
Victoria and David Beckham were only 23 and 22 years old when they first began dating in 1997. At the time he was the biggest soccer star in the world while she was of course known as Posh Spice from the Spice Girls. The next year the two got engaged and in 1999 they were married at Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland with their four-month-old son Brooklyn as their ring-bearer. The adorable pair have now been married for nearly 17 years and share four children, Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and Harper, 5. The two have hit some rough patches. In 2004, Beckham was rumored to have cheated on his wife with his former personal assistant Rebecca Loos, but Victoria and David have continued to stay strong and are happier than ever.
