It turned out to be the perfect collaboration for the couple, who just celebrated their second wedding anniversary – and their greatest joint project to date: the birth of 8-month-old twins Dolly and Charlie.

Says good friend David Furnish: "They go together to pick up their groceries. David takes [their son] Brooklyn to McDonald's. They cherish their everyday freedom."

The couple that tours together, stays together. So it seems for McGraw and Hill, both 44, who hooked up during 1996's Spontaneous Combustion tour. Fifteen years later, the country superstars, now with their three daughters in tow, are still hitting the road. "I can't imagine it getting any better," McGraw says. "Aside from being able to do something I love for a living, I've got the best wife in the world."

Pfeiffer, who has been married to TV producer Kelley, 53, for 15 years, laughs off experts who advocate keeping the mystery alive between partners. "Can you imagine, for 20 years, trying to stay mysterious in your relationship?" she asks. Instead, the actress, 51, credits the success of her marriage to being completely open: "One of the reasons my marriage is successful…is that we are completely comfortable around each other and don't feel the need to hide aspects of ourselves."

When Beatty cast Bening in 1991's Bugsy, the actor, now 74, knew his days as Hollywood's most eligible bachelor were numbered. "We just fell in love," Bening says of their courtship. "I knew something significant was happening." Now, the former playboy's social life revolves around his wife and their four kids. "He's a fantastic dad," says Bening, 53. "He's just enthralled, very thoughtful, very communicative."

One of Hollywood's most enduring love stories fittingly reads like ... a Hollywood love story. They met on-set – the 1985 flick Volunteers – but alas, he was married. Following Hanks's 1987 divorce, the twosome were immediately inseparable, even sharing a trailer during the filming of Sleepless in Seattle. "I didn't know what being in love was until I met Tom," Wilson has told Vanity Fair. Hanks similarly explained their courtship to PEOPLE: "When you find [love], it's undeniable."

It's family first for the couple, who make it a point not to work on different movies at the same time. Or better yet, they costar in the same films, as they did with Pyrates and The Woodsman. Supporting each other career-wise is key, Sedgwick, 44, explains to PEOPLE. "We have our priorities straight, but we also know that work is really important to us," she said. "It's very important for me that I support him in his work and vice versa."

Married for longer than the combined ages of the Olsen twins, Newman and Woodward, (who met in 1952 while performing in the Broadway play Picnic) were the envy of their peers. So what was the secret? Newman, who died in 2008 at age 83, says monogamy is as easy as knowing on which side his bread is buttered. "I have steak at home. Why should I go out for hamburger?" he once famously told Playboy.
