We tell ourselves that age is just a number, but is it really? If you use these still-going-strong celebrity relationships as a yardstick -- measuring how age disparity affects the stability of a romance -- then yes: Evidence would suggest that age really is only a number.
We've assembled a collection of celebrity couples with age gaps of 10 years or more. Most of them have been together for a while, have started families and remain super happy, in addition to being insanely good-looking and talented.
Mind the gap? Nah, since they sure don't.
