One thing that celebrities are famous for is getting married and then eventually getting divorced. In Hollywood, marriage is not a forever thing the same way that it is in the real world. Many celebrities have been married more than once, and for some the marriages didn’t even last a full year. There are some celebrities who have decided that married life just isn’t for them and they have never even been married once. Others just never pulled the trigger. Here is a list of famous people who have never officially said the words, “I do.”
