These days a lot of people will shack up and have children with their partner and make marriage an afterthought. But these celebrities were quick to run down the aisle to matrimony and got married in their teens.
Solange Knowles may be Beyonce’s baby sister but she beat her older sibling down the aisle. When she was just 17 years old, Solange married her high school sweetheart, Daniel Smith. She later gave birth to their son that same year. However, the couple wasn’t able to stay together for too long. Even though she relocated to Idaho so her husband could continue his studies, they ended up getting a divorce.
We’re used to celebrities being impulsive, and doing many permanent things by the age of 25, like getting tattoos, releasing scandalous photos and, of course, getting married. But these stars were a little more patient and waited a bit longer than most to get married. Let this inspire you to keep hope alive! Here are 15 celebrities who married after 40.
Emotional implications aside, we’d think most people were crazy for re-marrying their ex solely based on the fact that divorces and weddings are expensive!

Whether they’re actors or artists, politicians or great thinkers, most famous people who are extremely good at their craft have had some difficult experiences in their life, which breathes passion into their work.

If you adored these celebrities separately, you’ll be thrilled to know the lovable pairs they’re apart of! Here are celebrities you didn’t know were married to each other.
After two decades of marriage, it looks like another celebrity couple is throwing in the towel.
Sara Kapfer, wife of actor Cuba Good Jr., filed for legal separation with the L.A. County Superior Court yesterday, TMZ reports. It’s unclear specifically what caused Sara to want out of the 20-year marriage, but in her divorce filing, she cites irreconcilable differences. The estranged couple share three children together, two of which are minors. She is requesting joint physical and legal custody of the children. According to court documents, child support arrangements will be determined at a later date.
Cuba and Sara were high school sweethearts. They officially tied the knot in 1994. Just last year the actor gushed to “The View” hosts about celebrating his 20-year anniversary with Sara.
“She has been changing to this other woman that I have to introduce myself to every few years,” Cuba explained during the 2013 interview. “And thank god I’ve fallen in love with each one. It’s true. I’m lucky that way.”
As sweet as that sounds, he did, however, jokingly add:
“I want to kill her sometimes.”
It’s unfortunate that these two couldn’t find something in their 20-year marriage worth saving, but maybe this decision is for the best.
We’ve known for a while now that “Single Ladies” lead star Denise Vasi is no longer a single lady in real life. The 30-year-old actress jumped the broom with 40-year-old video director and photographer Anthony Mandler in October, but she’s only know giving us a glimpse into her big day with a Bridal Bliss Exclusive on Essence.com.
We live for Essence’s engagement and wedding photos and Denise’s wedding day photo gallery is no different. Set in a vineyard in Santa Ynez, California, Denise and Anthony’s album includes a mix of sentimental poses and fun candids, all with the Latina star glowing in her beautiful Kleinfeld Bridal dress. Check out the pics below and head over to Essence.com for a few more shots. What do you think?
Not every woman is interested in dropping her last name after marriage or even taking their husband’s name at all and quite a few leading ladies had no problem keeping their maiden name entirely. There was no hyphenation or dropping of anything, because the name they were born with was perfectly fine. Unlike these women who kept their husband’s last name after divorce, these women didn’t bother making the change to begin with.
The diva of all divas, Diana Ross, has been married twice and kept her last name during both marriages. She married music executive Robert Ellis Silberstein in 1971, which led to divorce in 1977. She remarried billionaire shipping magnate Arne Naess, Jr. in 1986 and divorced in 2000. The last name Ross rings bells across the world so it makes perfect sense that she hasn’t changed it.
Remember when Terrence Howard told us he’s nothing like his “Best Man” character Quentin because he falls in love fast? Well, now we actually believe the actor’s words as a report has surfaced claiming the 44-year-old has just married again for the fourth time.
The lucky — or unlucky — lady, depending on how you judge Terrence’s dating history, is allegedly a Canadian woman named Miranda who he’s only been dating for one whole month. As shocking as that is, the timeline actually makes sense since Terrence hasn’t been legally single all that long. In May, Terrence and his second wife, Michelle Ghent, were finally officially divorced after a bitter battle and plenty of nasty allegations. Michelle filed for divorce from Terrence just one year after they jumped the broom, accusing her husband of abusing her and seeking a restraining order against him. Terrence fought back with accusations of his own saying Michelle was a racist — as if that justified his behavior.
Either way, if this story is true Miranda apparently doesn’t care about the actor’s rocky relationship past, which also includes marrying and remarrying his first wife, Lori McCommas. Radar Online claims a source close to the actor told them Terrence’s latest marriage is “not out of character,” adding:
“It’s another one of his outlandish moves… he only knew and/or dated her for about a month!”
Radar also claims Terrence brought his new wife along to premieres for “The Best Man Holiday” and when we look at pics we do see a wedding band on his ring finger. Guess congrats are in order after all.
Sweet Love: Monica And Shannon Brown Celebrate Three Years Of Wedded Bliss With Vow Renewal Ceremony
A couple of months ago Monica and Shannon Brown welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. Now, they have one more thing to celebrate: their third wedding anniversary. The “Love All Over Me” singer shared a video to her Instagram page yesterday of herself and hubby, Shannon, exchanging rings in a beautiful, yet romantically simple vow renewal ceremony.
“Happy❤️Anniversary❤️SB❤️I am often times in awe of you!!! I fell in love with you the second our eyes met & everyday since I’ve thanked God for allowing me to experience a love that is of him,” Monica sweetly wrote.
“You have always put the children & I above all else & you constantly remind us we are not alone,” she continued.
“We love you endlessly @shannonbrown26 each day my heart smiles watching you effortlessly be a great father & husband❤️I Love You #ForeverAlways 11-22-10 #Wedding1 #NoOneKnewWeSaidIDO.”
They’re such a lovely couple. Back in 2011, the then-newlyweds told ESSENCE that they make their love work by never allowing their busy schedules to compromise family time.
“We’re together a lot because I think you make time for the things that are important and our marriage is important to us. So we make time, all the time. At a video shoot Shannon and I go in my dressing room and order the food we want and just spend time talking to each other and getting to know each other even more. Every day is a new day, so it never stops. You never stop learning each other. Sometimes the best moments are just the quiet ones,” Monica said.
Check out their sweet exchange below.
