Long-Time Unmarried Celebs

As much as we love celebrity drama from Hollywood, some of the best stories come from celebs who have stayed together for years and years, without even getting married!

As we see start after star spending millions on divorce lawyers, family counseling, child support payments and prenuptial agreements, many couples who never tied the knot at all have continued to have happy and strong ties with each other.

The most famous of all, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon, sadly did break up recently after over 20 years, but there are still many others who never bought that engagement ring but still stay together, like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

So going through the slideshow, I did a little lexical inventory of what the baby mama/baby daddy get called and find it interesting that there's a difference, even though I can't figure out who gets to be called what. It's either "boyfriend/girlfriend" (for example, Halle Berry's, Matthew McConaughey's, Jamie Lynn Spears', Alba's, Nicole Richie's) or "longtime boyfriend/girlfriend" (Mark Wahlberg's). Only the Tim Robbins/Susan Sarandon industrial complex is referred to in terms of "partner."Brad and Angelina get to be called "a couple." Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher are spared the girlfriend/boyfriend tag, too, either because they're both actors or because, as their slide indicates, he proposed to her years ago. Any unmarried couples out there want to chime in with terminological ideas for the celebrity press?
