We were crushed when we heard the news that Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith were divorcing after 18 years of marriage. The gorgeous couple had been together for nearly two decades, and honestly, we just assumed they'd be around 'til the end. Truth is: some couples have been together for so long and have such a romantic story, they would destroy our faith in true love (and humanity) if they ever parted ways.
For our sake, these 10 celebrity couples are never, ever allowed to break up:

Our faith in love would be completely shattered if Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan ever broke up. I mean, seriously, Emilio was Gloria's first boyfriend -- and we hope he'll be her last! Since 1978, these two have charmed the world with their rock-solid relationship.
"Emilio is the most motivational human being I know," Gloria told us. "If you're around him, he's total energy. He gets up every day in a good. He's always a can-do guy, and he hasn't lost the boy in him." Clearly, she's madly in love with him -- even after this all this time.
Freddie Prinze Jr. married Sarah Michelle Gellar in 2002, and the pair have been living happily ever after for the past 12 years. The low-key couple have all but abandoned the spotlight in favor of a more normal life with their two children, Charlotte and Rocky. Honestly, we'd be lost is Buffy and Zack Siler ever filed for divorce...
Former All My Children co-stars Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos met on set in 1995, and eloped a year later in 1996. Three children and 18 years later, these two are still the picture of perfection.
Carmelo Anthony and wife La La Anthony make the most adorable pair. The two New Yorkers have been engaged since 2004, and had their first child, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, in 2007. Finally, the two tied the knot in 2010. The pair are madly in love -- even ten years after they first got engaged.
Our heads pretty much exploded when we first learned Gina Torres and Laurence Fishburne had been married since 2002. Once we got over the initial shock-and-awe, our hearts filled with delight over this incredible partnership. We couldn't be happier to know that the Hannibal stars are real-life lovers.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel may not have been married quite as long as some of the couples on this list, but their love for each other is undeniable. The busy couple have a rule which they follow strictly: they won't go more than two weeks without seeing other! Clearly, their method is working. Fergie and Josh married in 2009, and gave birth to their first child, Axl Jack, in 2013.
Okay, so these two can be hard to handle sometimes. But, if they can find their perfect match, anyone can. Despite her diva antics, Mariah Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, is completely smitten with the superstar. They were married in 2008, and the lovebirds both got inked with each other's names to commemorate the occassion. In 2011, they became parents to twins, Monroe and Moroccan, but that didn't put a damper on the romance! In 2013, they celebrated their five year wedding anniversary with a whimsical ceremony at Walt Disney World. Que romantico!
The world's most recognizable supermodel, Gisele Bündchen, married all-American quarterback, Tom Brady, in 2009. In addition to being the two most flawless human beings on the planet, the two are clearly crazy about each other.
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem first met while filming Jamón, Jamón in 1992, but they didn't begin dating until 2007, when they co-starred in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The twosome wed in 2008, and they're now the parents of two beautiful niños. Although Cruz and Bardem prefer to keep out of the public eye, it's obvious that the two Spaniards are deeply in love.
Tommy Mottola was married to Mariah Carey in the early 90s, but luckily, they were both able to find true love with other people following a nasty divorce. Mottola married Thalia in 2000, and the lovebirds have two children together, Sabrina and Matthew. Thalia insists she didn't marry Mottola for the fame -- and we believe her! I mean, the connection between these two is enviable.
