The road to happily ever after isn’t always smooth sailing, especially in Hollywood, and sometimes it takes a step back to help move things forward. Whether it’s at the beginning of the relationship or after a decade of marriage, time apart can sometimes help and we have the proof to back it up! Here’s a list of 14 celebrities who proved time apart can help a relationship!
14. Patrick J. Adams and Troian Bellisario
Suits star Patrick J. Adams started dating Pretty Little Liars actress, Troian Bellisario, in 2009 after they worked together on a play in L.A. called Equivocation where Bellisario was cast as his love interest. This was the beginning of their relationship, but their hectic schedules forced them apart for long periods of time and made their relationship increasingly difficult. They briefly broke up in 2010, but Adams wasn’t about to let the relationship go. He pulled out all the stops to win her back, including auditioning for a guest role on her show! This is why he shows up in season 1’s episode “Reality Bites Me.” His grand gesture worked because they were engaged in 2014 and married in December 2016!
