Celebrities are often idealized to the point of fiction, but people forget that they, too, are mere mortals who must navigate the devastatingly human parts of life like love and relationships. Ugly Hollywood divorces are common, but there are also quite a few inspiring couples who have withstood the test of time.
The vivacious superstar Dolly Parton has been married to her reclusive husband, Carl Dean, for more than 55 years! Parton recently revealed one of her secrets to a long, happy, and "spicy" marriage. The 'Jolene' singer says she likes to get dressed up and look her best, even when it's just the two of them at home. "Every day, I put on some makeup and fix my hair because I think, 'Well, the whole world, I'm out here and everybody else sees me all dressed up, and I'm not going to just kind of go home and just flop on him,'" she told E! News. "Nobody wants to make out with a slouch!" she joked.
