After years of dating and one paparazzi shot after another, none of these celebrities have been spotted with a rock on their finger. We took a look at some celebrity couples that seem content to just be dating their sweethearts rather than getting hitched. Will they eventually tie the knot? Who knows, but until then, they belong on our Celebrity Couples Who Don’t Need Marriage to Prove Their Love list:
