List Criteria: Only celebrity couples that were (or are) married, dated for 5+ years, or have a kid together. Vote up the pairings you had no idea were ever together.

List of famous people you didn't know were married to each other. The surprising Hollywood marriages and longterm relationships listed below are made up of celebrity pairs we did not see coming. The stars that said "I Do" over the years are often highly publicized events. Covered by the media, superstar wedding ceremonies grace magazine covers and sometimes even make headline news. The following famous husband and wife teams, however, have caught many by surprise either because they had other more famous hookups with other stars, their wedded bliss was short-lived, or the pairing was so random and odd that people simply overlooked the fact that it happened at all. Either way, the superstar unions below will have you asking, "They dated?"

The term Hollywood marriage sounds so glamorous and over-the-top, but in reality most of the couples below, whether married, engaged or dated long-term, just wanted to settle down with the person they thought was their soulmate. The list of outrageous married celeb couples include legends of film, television and music as well as supermodels and sports stars. Vote for your favorite random romance below and see how others rank the most surprising marriages in Tinseltown.
