Did you ever hear the phrase, “April showers bring May flowers”?  Believe it or not, it means something deeper than just storms and blossoming blooms. In life, dark clouds always eventually pass, allowing the sun to shine through. Focusing on the bright side when you’re down can be difficult, but these five famous couples have gone through rough times (in the public eye, no less!) and these celebs are currently doing exceptionally well.

Cupid takes a look to see what celebrity couples made it through stormy times:

1. Prince William and Kate Middleton: The royal newlyweds dated for eight years, but they had an off-and-on relationship.  ‘Inside Edition’ reported that the pair broke up in 2007 after five years of dating, stating William’s “immaturity” was a major factor for their break.  However, this famous couple soon got back together and had the wedding of the decade in April 2011, which more than two billion people watched worldwide.

2. Cash Warren and Jessica Alba: The duo began dating in 2005, but called it quits two years later because Alba was ready for marriage and Warren wouldn’t commit.  The celebs reconciled in 2008, announcing that they were expecting their first child, and married in May 2008.

3. Carey Hart and Pink: This celebrity couple has had a tumultuous relationship. They met in 2001 and briefly split in 2003. The pair then got married in January 2006 but separated two years later.  They began seeing each other again in 2009 and went through martial counseling since their divorce was never finalized.  Carey even got an image of Pink’s face tattooed on his leg.

4. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake: This famous couple finally seems to have found peace with their relationship. Their relationship was on again, off again for years until they finally got married in 2012. While they’ve been at the center of celebrity gossip for rumors of cheating and divorce, they seem happily married now and their first child was born this past April.

It might have taken these celebrity couples some years and plenty of time to reconcile their relationship, but if they were able to sail past their own storms, so can you.  Look at the positive side of your relationship with your significant other, and soon you will also be happier than ever.
