With all of the hookups and breakups in Hollywood, it can be hard to see celebrities as relationship inspiration, and even though many of our favorite stars seem to date somebody new every week, there are a few couples that have lasting love. Some of the most iconic couples on the red carpet can show us a thing or two about making a relationship work. Here are 7 things celebrities can teach us about love:

Don’t Give Up
Jennifer Aniston is a prime example of giving love a second chance. After the drama of Brangelina and the breakup of one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, Jennifer took the high road. She didn’t start a catfight and she didn’t stay home in her sweatpants when she got divorced from Brad Pitt. She went on with her life and her work, and has since found a lasting love with Justin Theroux.

Age Is Just a Number
The amount of celebrity couples with significant age differences is hard to keep track of. From Jennifer Lopez and her younger backup dancer hubby, to Taylor Swift and her many suitors of different ages, these couples show that age doesn’t matter. Bradley Cooper dated a model that was 17 years younger than him, and Hayden Panettiere has a child with her partner who is 14 years her senior.

No matter how many makeups and breakups you go through, your family will always love you. Celebrities rely on their families to get through tough times and they prove that family love is a lasting love. Selena Gomez focused on her newborn baby sister while she dealt with the drama of her Justin Bieber breakup and the Kardashian clan has stuck together through the marriages and divorces of almost every family member.

You Can Find Love Anywhere
Matt Damon married a bartender he met by accident and Patrick Dempsey married his hairdresser. Who would have guessed that McDreamy would end up starting a family with a totally normal woman? Celebrities might have a lifestyle full of glitz and glamor, but that doesn’t mean they have to find true love on the red carpet. All of these celebs prove that you can find the love of your life just about anywhere. Keep an open mind, because you never know who you might run into at a coffee shop or on the subway!

It Can Happen To Anyone
Bad relationships can happen to good people. Take a look at Anne Hathaway, a Hollywood good-girl whose ex-boyfriend was in prison for jewelry theft. She had no idea of his shady situation and they were still a couple when his crimes were made public. Anne has since removed herself from that situation and has been happily married to Adam Shulman for a few years.

He Can Be Tamed
The number one bachelor in America has finally settled down. George Clooney, who was a ladies man for decades, married Amal Alamuddin and shocked the world with his change of heart. Adam Levine did the same thing when he married a Victoria’s Secret Angel and lost his playboy image. This goes to show that even the most epic bachelor can settle down when he finds the one.

Strong Couples Support Each Other
A strong relationship requires each person to support the other, and superstar couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z are a great example of that. He supports her booming music career and she supports his. They both have extremely successful jobs but they don’t let that overshadow one another or get in the way. There is no competition or power struggle between this power couple, and they prove that strong couples should be able to support each other.
