Hollywood is not exactly the best example of functioning, normal marriages, but there have been some successful marriages that we all thought would last. However, life gets in the way sometimes, even for celebrities. Here’s a list of the most shocking celebrity divorces from marriages we were sure would last.

  1. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner: Announced one day after their 10-year anniversary, this decision took the world by surprise. They share 3 children together. Even though their decision came as a massive shock, fans can take comfort in the fact that after the divorce, Ben and Jennifer have been seen around shopping, taking family trips, going to church, and attending dinners together.
  2. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin: After 11 years of marriage, this well-known couple decided it wasn’t working out anymore. They share a son and daughter together, but after a year of separation, decided it wasn’t going to reach a resolve.
  3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale: Anyone who follows pop culture was surely shocked by this divorce announcement. After over 13 years of marriage and 3 sons, it seemed nothing could break these two up. The announcement came in early August, in which Gwen stated they’ve decided to separate but will keep a happy, healthy environment for their sons.
  4. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher: Although at face value, the couple might have seemed like an odd pairing, many grew to love the couple together. They proved that a large age gap might not be as big of a deal as it seems. However, the age gap may have proved too much for even Demi and Ashton because they filed for divorce after 6 years of marriage, and 8 years of being together. The couple had a particularly difficult time settling on divorce terms after the initial filing as well.
  5. Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis: Even Johnny and Vanessa never got officially married, this split was particularly shocking to all because they seemed unbreakable. The couple was together for over 14 years after meeting in Paris in 1998 and having two children together. Both Johnny and Vanessa have since seemed to move on.
