Celebrity couples may quit each other, but we just can't quit them! How many former couples do you wish would get back together? Probably a handful...
Many were just plain adorable together. Others were ultimately toxic, so it's a positive thing that they split, but the good memories have stayed with us over the years as well.
This draw that fans feel towards famous couples is often amplified when dealing with gay and lesbian couples. That's due to the representation they offer, and their subsequent status as role models, whether they like it or not. While such representation isn't all that rare today, it certainly was previously, even as recently as the '90s and early 2000s.
Let's face it: certain gay and lesbian celebrity exes hold a special place in our hearts. Fortunately, there are plenty of photos around that enable our gushing over the good old days.
