These Celebrities Married Their High School Sweethearts — and Some Are Still Together Years Later

Growing up, we all dream of finding love in high school, living out our dreams, and staying together for life. Unfortunately, things don’t always go according to plan. Getting older means making really difficult life choices and sometimes, the people we fall for in our younger years have no place in our lives as we move into adulthood. For celebrities, in particular, making it big and being thrust into the spotlight can be very burdensome on relationships, no matter how solid they might seem.

Still, now and then some people beat the odds. Some celebrities took the plunge and married their high school sweethearts and though the fairytale came to an end for some, others are still together today.

It was a long and sordid saga for rapper Eminem and his ex-wife Kim Scott. The Detroit MC met Scott and her twin sister Dawn when he was just 15-years-old, and Scott was 13. Like Eminem, Scott’s homelife was bit unstable, so she moved in with the Slim Shady rapper and his mother. Eventually, the two began dating and had their daughter Haille in 1995. Things seemed to be working between the pair, so they ultimately wed in 1999.

Unfortunately, fame and addiction got in the way of their happiness and the young couple divorced in 2001. And yet, that isn’t the final chapter in the saga of their romance. Scott and Eminem wed again in 2006, only to divorce again just four months later.
