Summer love is notorious for being fleeting, which makes it not seem so bad when your bi-coastal boo has to return back home after a summer break. But what really hurts is when long-term couples breakup over the summer, putting a dark, looming cloud over what should have been a fun and sun-filled few months. The summer of 2015, especially, showed no mercy when it came to love, and many of my favorite, well-known celeb couplings bit the dust. Although many didn't make it, I want to stay optimistic, so I'm choosing to end the year by celebrating the many celebrity couples who did to survive the 2015 summer of breakups.
In Hollywood, any couple that stays together for more than six months has made quite the achievement. It's difficult to find someone who can grow with you in the spotlight and stand the fame, especially if you aren't in the same industry or aren't at the same level of success, but plenty of celeb couples have done just that. Unfortunately, plenty of these couples also couldn't make it last past whatever was in the air this summer.
Personally, I am still lighting a candle that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner will get back together, because they just make sense. But now that summer is over and winter bae snuggling time is here, let's take a look at 29 celeb couples who survived the summer of 2015, and who will reassure you that it's OK to still believe in love.
1. Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan
These two are just so adorable together and enjoying their time with their two year old daughter, Everly.
2. Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris
Some people didn't believe in Tayvin, and even though they both remained low-key about their relationship on social media over the summer, they are still very much together.
3. Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
These two are so obnoxiously in love, and they announced in October that they're expecting their first child together!
4. Justin Theroux & Jennifer Aniston
Much has been speculated about Jennifer Aniston and her marriage status, but this year she actually did tie the knot when she wed long-term boyfriend Justin Theroux in August.
5. Shakira & Gerard Piqué
Shakira, Piqué, and their two beautiful boys continue to provide us with the most gorgeous celebrity family photos of all time.
6. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Say what you will about them, but Kardashian and West are two peas in a pod — and definitely meant for each other. They welcomed their second child, Saint West, on Dec. 5.
7. Bella Hadid & The Weeknd
Early in May, reports came out that Hadid and The Weeknd were dating, and later posts on her Instagram pretty much confirmed it. As of right now, the two have stretched out their Coachella romance over the summer and Hadid also stars in The Weeknd's newest video for "In The Night."
8. Vanessa Hudgens & Austin Butler
Vanessa Hudgens continues to live my dream life by traveling around the world (and to plenty of music festivals) with her boyfriend, Austin Butler. The two seem to be as in love as they were when they started dating in 2011!
9. Johnny Depp & Amber Heard
This relationship had its naysayers, but after a year of engagement, Depp and Heard married on his private Bahamas island in February. They are doing so well so far, they even wore matching outfits at his Black Mass premiere in October. I think these kids are gonna make it.
10. Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel
Not only are these two lovebirds still together, but they welcomed their first son, Silas, early in April and have been glowing ever since.
11. Chris Pratt & Anna Faris
During his intense promo tours for Jurassic World, Chris Pratt was not shy when talking about how his wife, Anna Faris, is his soulmate. They're the ultimate celebrity couple goals.
12. Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo
These two cuties celebrated their one year wedding anniversary this July, when Levine serenaded his wifey with a stirring rendition of "Let's Get It On."
13. Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka
The Harris-Burtka family blessed us again this year with another perfect Halloween costume photo of themselves and their beautiful children.
14. Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick
After being married for over 17 years, Broderick was asked about his secret of marriage to SJP and he told Meredith Vieira, "We really are friends beyond everything else and we talk a lot... Keep talking I guess, I know how cliché that is. Too much silence is definitely not a good idea... It is good. I'm very blessed being married to her." Aww.
15. Russell Wilson & Ciara
16. Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
Kunis and Kutcher make every television fans dream come true when they finally got together years after being co-stars on That '70s Show. And times have really changed, because they celebrated their baby Wyatt's first birthday this October.
17. Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello
Vergara and Manganiello swiftly became the hottest married couple on Earth when they got married in Palm Beach, Florida in November.
18. Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson
They are infamous for not caring to ever get married, and they have been faithfully in love since 2006! This is my Hollywood OTP right here.
19. Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard
Bell and Shepard are almost polar opposites, and this is why they believe their relationship has lasted the way it has. They wed in 2013, and told Good Housekeeping this year that they use couples therapy to keep their marriage healthy.
20. Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis
Wilde and Sudeikis have been engaged since 2013 and are proud parents to their one year old son, Otis.

Let's face it, Pitt and Jolie are the reigning king and queen of Hollywood couples. They gave us mere mortals a glimpse into their perfect life with their children in an incredible spread for the November 2015 issue of Vogue .
22. Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
This September, Lively and Reynolds celebrated their third wedding anniversary. They also recently celebrated the first birthday of their daughter, James.
23. Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes
Gosling and Mendes kept their relationship relatively private — until news broke of her pregnancy. In September 2014, Mendes gave birth to their first child, Esmeralda, and this year, they celebrated her first birthday, while rumors came out of their possible engagement. Only time will tell with these two.
24. Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith
Rumors spread earlier this year that Will and Jada were breaking up, and they swiftly put an end to that. For Will's birthday, Jada posted an adorable Facebook dedication to her husband.
25. Lena Dunham & Jack Antonoff
26. Lady Gaga & Taylor Kinney
27. Leighton Meester & Adam Brody
This perfectly twee couple has been together since 2013 and in September, they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Arlo Day.
28. FKA Twigs & Robert Pattinson
Twigs and Pattinson dealt with a lot of offensive fan criticism when they first got together. They allegedly got engaged in April of this year, and while their marriage plans are reportedly on hold, the couple was recently spotted heading back to London together after a night with mutual friend, Katy Perry.
29. Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden
I had some qualms after Madden debuted a massive "Cameron" tattoo across his chest, but the two lovebirds are now married and still going strong, and quite frankly, I am very happy about that because Diaz deserves it.
I know Hollywood isn't always the easiest place to stay in a happy relationship, but these couples sure are doing something right! (At least, for now.)
