In the midst of our favorite celebrity couples divorcing, we look to one of the last examples of how a celebrity marriage can exist. 

 

Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have been a source of hope for a lasting marriage. The 49-year-old X-Men star and his 62-year-old wife celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary. 

 

Jackman shared a sweet message to his wife, and it's extremely sweet.

 "I believe in life we need to see and truly be seen by the most important people in our lives," he wrote. "Deb, from day one, we had that. 22 years later ... it only gets deeper. You and the kids are the greatest gift I will ever receive. I love you a gazillion times around the world."

 

Ryan Reynolds, the best celebrity troll, then hilariously commented, "I gave this 3 months. Tops. I was wrong."

I believe in life we need to see and truly be seen by the most important people in our lives. Deb, from day one, we had that. 22 years later ... it only gets deeper. You and the kids are the greatest gift I will ever receive. I love you a gazillion times around the world.

Jackman met Deborra at his first acting gig on the Australian TV series Correlli.

 

"My first job out of drama school it was a massive break for me. I was really scared. Deb, she was a big star," he previously told People. "I get picked up, and Deb is in the front seat of the car. I'll never forget. She took off her seatbelt and she turned around and put out her hand and took off her sunglasses and said, 'Hi, Im Deborra-lee Furness, nice to meet you.' I remember thinking, 'I like this girl.' "
