While some couples fall in love when they first meet, many others first develop a friendship that can later turn romantic. Many celebrity couples have known each other for years, even though they haven’t experienced love at first sight. But love is often a mystery, and romantic feelings can develop many years later.

We have compiled a list of celebrity couples that prove that two people who are made for each other will always find a way to be together, even if it takes decades.

The Oscar-winning actress and James Bond star met in college in 1994. They dated briefly, but then parted ways until they were cast in the same movie in 2010. This time, Rachel and Daniel knew they were made for each other.

This pair of actors got married in 2011 and have been together ever since, welcoming a daughter in 2018.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker


In 2021, Kourtney and Travis got engaged, but their love story started much earlier. The two met in 2006 when Travis was dating Paris Hilton and Kourtney’s sister Kim was working as Paris’s assistant.

That’s why Kourtney and Travis were friends for 15 years before their relationship became much more romantic.

Angela and Courtney have been married for over 2 decades, but it took many years for their romance to blossom. The 2 actors met in college when they were both studying at the Yale School of Drama, but it wasn’t love at first sight.

However, 14 years later, they saw things differently and began to build a beautiful family together.
