Celebrity splits make all the headlines (we’re looking at you, Tom and Katie) but there are plenty of celebrity couples that endure. Consider Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan (pictured here on the set of Family Ties, where they met in the mid-'80s), married since 1988 and still going strong. Click through for more celebrities who said "I do" — and meant it.

Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen (shown here in the 1996 NBC miniseries Gulliver's Travels) got hitched in 1995. They’ve also appeared together on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm and on the short-lived CBS drama Ink.
Long before he was Frank Costanza on Seinfeld, Jerry Stiller teamed with wife Anne Meara to form a legendary comedy duo. Married in 1954, they were regulars on the variety and talk show circuit (see them at left on The Ed Sullivan Show). Ben Stiller is their son. They also have a daughter, Amy.

Tim and Daphne Reid were already married when they appeared together on the CBS sitcom Frank’s Place in 1987 (they’re pictured on the set). He's most famous as Venus Flytrap on WKRP in Cincinnati; she was Carlton's mom on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Steve Carell and Nancy Walls tied the knot in 1995, when both of them were just starting out in comedy. The husband-wife team shared a stint together on The Daily Show and, as shown in the photo, played a mismatched couple on The Office.

Given their background in nighttime drama, Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna (here wowing 'em in the musical Chicago) were a match made in soap opera heaven when they got married in 1997. They’ve since appeared together on the Lifetime reality show Harry Loves Lisa. They have two daughters.

Talia Balsam ditched first husband George Clooney to marry Mad Men’s John Slattery in 1998. OK, not really — Balsam and Clooney divorced in 1993, long before she tied the knot with Slattery. They play a divorced couple on Mad Men (pictured).

Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally (pictured here at this year’s Sundance Film Festival) got married in 2003 and make for one of the entertainment biz's quirkiest couplings. She has a recurring role as ex-wife to Offerman’s Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation.

Playing "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" with Kyra Sedgwick makes for a short game — they’ve been married since 1988 (costarring in The Woodsman, 2004). What’s more, as the PBS program Finding Your Roots learned, they're distant cousins. They have a son and a daughter.

Back in the '70s, she was Mindy to Robin Williams' Mork, but in real life Pam Dawber has been married to NCIS star Mark Harmon since 1987. They’ve been in movies (like I'll Remember April, left, in 2000) and plays together, but have never shared the small screen. They have two sons.
