I hate to be this person, but Hollywood has really left us with very few couples to actually look up to. Yeah, Kim and Kanye have great style and cute kids, but they just are not realistic to look up to. So many couples are so toxic, and it's hard to see true love blossom amongst famous people. Lucky for us, there are some celeb couples who have their shit together and know how to make a relationship work. Cheers to the couples who made it, and serve as great role models for how relationships are supposed to work.

1. Steve and Terry Irwin



The absolute OG couple so many of us grew up watching on TV. Steve and Terry Irwin took us all over the world wrestling crocodiles and swimming with sharks, but the most important thing we all saw through our TV's was the love these two had for each other. This is one couple I hope to model my future relationships off of because even in his death Terry still loves him just as much as she did when he was alive, and carries on his memory every day.

2. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen



You can't go wrong looking up to these two amazing people. Chrissy is the type of gal to say what we're all thinking and not be ashamed to do so, and John is just John, all musical and kind. The love John and Chrissy share between each other is very strong, as evidenced by their two adorable children.

3. Emily Blunt and John Krasinski



I know they aren't Jim and Pam but honey those days are over. Make way for Emily and John to melt your hearts. They have been together for eight years, and for Hollywood, that's quite a while. Imagine being in a movie with your significant other...a girl can dream.

4. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively



I LOVE THEM. SO MUCH. Seriously cannot be more perfect than these two. They know how to joke around and have raised such adorable children. Ryan sure makes us ladies have super high standards for men since we're seeing how Blake is treated. If you're in a relationship and you can't joke around with each other...dump him (or her) sis.

5. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith



Their relationship has survived more than two decades of marriage and I don't foresee it ever ending. This is a couple who is very transparent about their marriage (both the pretty and the ugly moments) and have a great family dynamic worthy of looking up to.

6. David and Victoria Beckham



The King and Queen have earned their place on this list. Like the Smith's they have been together basically forever, and set the bar high. Bend it like the Beckhams or throw your relationship out.

7. Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams



I love these two, they're some of the sweetest celebs ever and deserve each other and all the happiness in the world. They are very supportive of one another and are much closer in age to a lot of us who are reading this article, so they serve as a great model for what a positive millennial relationship looks like.

8. Elton John and David Furnish



These two do so much for charity and have raised two wonderful sons together. Giving back is so important for couples to do as it brings them closer together. Find a cause you are both passionate for and go for it.

9. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi



These women are such an inspiration. Ellen loves who she loves and was unafraid to do so. Fear holds us back from many things in our lives, but we should never be afraid to love who we want to love.

10. Prince Harry and Megan Markle



Megan is a rule breaker and so is Harry, so these two were just meant to be together. They are both fearless and strong, and already have baby number one on the way. They are so in love with one another and defied all of the rules of society to be together, which goes to show love wins over everything.

11. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra



The wedding of the season, hands down. Her dress was stunning, and their love for one another shines even brighter. These two merged two cultures together through their relationship which I absolutely love. They do a lot philanthropically as well. All in all, many of us did not want Nick Jonas to marry anyone except ourselves, but Priyanka is someone we can all be satisfied with him marrying.

12. Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler



Austin and Vanessa are super cute, they have been since we were all young and wondering why she chose Austin over Zac Efron. I love how well they compliment one another and are super supportive of one another as well. Support is key and all of the couples mentioned are perfect examples of how support can carry you anywhere.

13. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth



They finally tied the knot and I for one am so happy for them. Liam and Miley had countless ups and downs, but they still ended up coming back together in the end. Sometimes the timing is wrong, or someone needs to do some personal growth, and it's clear that true love won and these two finally became the best versions of themselves for one another.

When You're Dating A First Responder, Sacrifice Is Something You Have To Respect

It is his career and I respect that 100%.

I have heard all kinds of stories about women whose boyfriends/husbands are firefighters that died in the line of duty. One that always surprises me is when they get angry with their significant other for not considering them or their families when on the job.

As the girlfriend of a firefighter, I 100% disagree with how those women feel and here's why.

My boyfriend has been a firefighter for about a year and a half now and has known that it would be his career since we started dating as seniors in high school. Before he even started working for a department, I was constantly nervous about how I would feel when he was out on calls. Would I ever get over the anxiety of the possibility of him losing his life and putting it at risk with every call?

When he did finally get on a department, I was extremely nervous for the first six months or so. Then something hit me. This career was his decision. He encouraged me to attend a school six hours away from home and said doing long distance would be ok and we'd make it work. While that's not the same as running into burning buildings, he always supports me with everything I do.

Running into burning buildings, standing on the side of busy roads and climbing dangerous ladders is what he chose to do for a living. It's his calling, his way of finding his place in the world. He trains harder than anyone I've ever met and is currently studying extremely hard to become a paramedic. Saving people's lives is in his blood.

If he gives up his life to save someone else's, I will not be angry or upset. I will be proud. If I have to go to his funeral, I will be surrounded by his brothers for support and my children will know their dad was a hero. In my eyes, regardless of if he's driving the engine, working the hose or running into those houses, he is a hero. Every time the tones drop, I no longer feel anxiety. I feel a sense of pride knowing that he is there for people in their worst moments. He's the beacon of light at the end of the tunnel, the literal saving grace.

There is nothing in this world that makes me prouder of my firefighter boyfriend than the selfless job he chose. I chose him because of that selflessness and I will never regret that, regardless of the fact that he may lose his life for someone else.

To The Boy Who Loves Me Next, You're Allowed To Leave Me

And I am not scared of it happening anymore.

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable." -C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

I used to, in the past, fall for people because they made me feel like it was safe to.

The guy who brought me flowers on the first date, told me he would follow me anywhere a week and a half after meeting me, and blew hundreds of dollars to impress me, seemed like the right option. I was so proud of myself for ending the cycle of going for the "wrong guy." I ignored all of the red flags because he was a comfortable, safe choice. If he was that emotionally connected to me, I should like him. I chose to pursue him over a guy I had feelings for at the time because I felt like it was the "right" choice to be with the "good guy." It didn't matter that I felt nothing when he kissed me, that we had nothing in common, and that I truly was not okay with some of his life decisions. It didn't matter that he treated me horribly, because as long as I felt like he was loyal to me, needed me, and wouldn't leave me, I didn't care what happened within those parameters. I fell for security, or the illusion of security. I didn't fall for a person.

The biggest fear I had was if I let my guard down for somebody, that they would walk away. I couldn't have known that choosing security, choosing the person I didn't think would walk away, would carry me right into the most toxic and suffocating relationship possible — one that drained all of the life force out of me and actually never ended up making me feel any positive feelings. He mistreated me over and over, leaving permanent scars on my heart that I'm not sure will ever fully heal. But I felt like I had invested too much emotion already. Opening my heart up was the most difficult thing I had done, and I didn't think I could ever do it again after the immense failure I felt had come from that relationship. So, it was better to be safe with the devil I knew than the devil I didn't.

Eventually, though, the hurt came. He did leave, and it felt like he had taken everything from me but my ability to feel pain. Despite me choosing the safest route I could possibly find, I still was left totally devastated. But I wasn't devastated over losing him. I was devastated over losing my security.

This, unfortunately, is the caveat of love. If you can manage to fall for someone when they fall for you, you are very lucky. But you will never have that guarantee. Somebody could promise you on their lives that they will never leave, they will never lose interest, that they will be the one in your life who doesn't hurt you, but they still don't owe you anything. You could be with somebody for years and years and they could wake up one day and decide that they don't love you anymore. In a healthy relationship, the person you're with needs to feel like they have this freedom, and you need to be comfortable with them having it.

We have to be strong enough to be okay with this harsh truth. There are no guarantees in love, or in life. It is devastating to fall for somebody and to lose them. But the solution to this is not to avoid falling for people — the solution is to accept that you might lose them. But you must love them despite that.

You must love despite the risk because it is selfish to love somebody only when they have proven to be a low-risk investment for you.

You must love despite the risk because love is not rooted in codependency and safety.

You must love despite the risk because that is the only way you will ever be able to experience the deeply satisfying feeling of being vulnerable with somebody with absolutely no expectations of them, knowing what you're risking and doing it anyway, throwing caution to the wind- and for them to return it.

You must love despite the risk because everybody you love will eventually be taken away from you. Permanence in love simply does not exist.

You must love despite the risk because you are strong enough to.
