Celebrities are pretty cool, don’t you think? They are popular and wealthy, and when we get to see them, they are bedazzled and always behind flashing lights.

But if TMZ has taught us anything over the years, it is that celebrities have skeletons in their closets, and their love lives can get pretty messed up too.

We do look up to celebrities, and they do influence most of what goes on in our lives. What we wear, how we wear, where we go on vacations, what places to dine, etc. As such, there are several things we can learn from their relationships and marriages.

If you are planning on diving and looking for dating online, here are a few things we’ve learned from celebrity relationships and marriages over the years that will help you get by.

  • Be Private and Have Boundaries

It is important to have boundaries in your relationship. If you want to be happy with your partner, you should learn to protect your privacy. If Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have taught us anything, it is that you should safeguard your personal life from excessive scrutiny, especially from the media.

  • Balance Between Professional and Personal Lives

Celebrities often have to balance their personal and professional lives under the unforgiving scrutiny of the public.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are an adorable couple who have mastered the art of juggling family and career while making it look effortless.

According to Teigen, it is important for a couple to support each other’s careers and endeavors while making family a priority. As a couple that’s always under the public eye, Teigen says it is crucial to keep all channels of communication open.

Teigen insists it’s also important to spend time away from each other and allow yourselves to miss each other’s company. Traveling and having independent experiences is a great way to grow a healthy relationship.

  • Grow and Evolve Together

If we’re being honest, Hollywood scripts don’t have much faith in love or marriages. However, Jay-z and Beyonce have proved love grows together with you.

This musical power couple has grown so much in their careers and relationships over the years. Beyonce and Jay-Z constantly talk about their journey as a couple and as parents and how it all affects their career path.

According to Beyonce, it is important for partners to maintain their independence, especially in a long-term relationship.

It’s easy to feel trapped by your partner and the relationship when you aren’t confident in yourself. Self-confidence and independence in a relationship allow two people to develop a genuine connection, and the relationship is based on the right things.

  • Weather Challenges Together

David and Victoria oozed power even before they got married in 1999.

Over the years, the couple has gone through a lot while establishing their individual brands and raising their family.

The couple struggled through financial setbacks, rumors of cheating, David’s constant traveling, and numerous business brands.

David and Victoria Beckham are a love-strong couple, parents, and a business brand; there is much to learn from them.

  • Friends before Lovers

As you’ve learned from all the teen flicks and rom-coms you’ve watched over the years, the best relationships sprout from friendship.

True, you could meet someone and feel the sparks right away, but Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have a different opinion.

The two met in 2011 when filming the green lantern movie, and while their chemistry on the screen was off the charts, that didn’t translate to their real lives. Well, at least not for the next year and a half.

According to Blake, it is important to treat your partner as you would your best friend. Open up to your spouse, and let them know how you feel and why. It’s important to seek your partner’s advice, even on things you consider trivial.

The couple has been married since 2012, with two lovely kids. So, it’s safe to say, lessons learned.

  • Conclusion

When dating or planning for marriage, it is important to understand that each relationship is unique. Celebrities have their fair share of good times and bad times, and so will your relationship.

However, don’t compare your love life to what you see on TV or the internet because you can never truly trust the media for a full story.
