Meredith Baxter and Nancy Locke – 15 Years Together
For years and years, it seemed like actress Meredith Baxter would never find love. Still best remembered for her role on NBC sitcom Family Ties, the actress went through a serious of marriages, three in total, none of which lasted very long. However, after spending years of failed celebrity couples, Baxter came to a realization in 2002: she was attracted to women! After that epiphany, the actress has said she’s never felt more free or alive.
In 2005, thanks to a mutual friend, Baxter went on a blind date with general Nancy Locke. According to the women, it was love at first sight. Though the road to the altar was not easy for them, they wed in 2013 in front of a small group of friends and family. Now, the couple will soon celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary!
Ina and Jeffrey Garten – 51 Years Together
Not many celebrities can say they married their teenage sweetheart, but celebrity chef Ina Garten can! She first met her future husband, Jeffrey, at the age of just 15! “He saw me on the street and then sent me a letter with a photograph of himself in it,” Ina told People just before the 50th wedding anniversary. “I just remember running through the house and going, ‘Mom, Mom, you’ve got to see this picture of this guy. He’s so cute!'”
Well, as you might imagine, dating and marriage followed not long after in 1968. Over the years, they’ve had quite a few life changes, like when Ina left her great job as a nuclear budget analyst to become a chef, but they’ve weathered every storm together.
