I couldn't help but try to stay with her, keep pace with her and not let her get away. [Laughs.] Like an animal preying on a smaller animal, but a wily smaller animal."

Last week a disturbing rumor started going around that  Beyoncé and Jay Z were on the rocks. No, we thought. They’re not allowed to have marital troubles. There have been all too many celebrity couples lately — Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom, Heidi Klum and Seal— that we thought were going to last forever, and Jay and Bey have to stick it out. If not for themselves, well then, for the rest of us.

But that got us thinking about some of the other celebrity couples we’ve come to regard as near-perfect, and whom we’ve come to depend on. Couples whose relationships have helped us believe that romance isn’t totally dead. Which is why we’ve put together a list of twelve additional famous couples who aren’t (ever!) allowed to break up.

Hopefully someone will get them that memo, okay?
