Hot Hollywood couples are great, but we’ve got the scoop on two celebs who have had years of love and know how to make it work. According to People.comBette Midler and Martin Von Haselberg have been married almost 30 years. Though they spent a short, six weeks together and then headed straight to the chapel, Midler knows they are not the norm. Today they have a 27-year-old  daughter who is also jumping into show business, and some helpful advice on marriage. “It’s best to pick your fights wisely and just meditate. Stay calm. Don’t go from zero to 60 in two seconds. Just stay calm and try to breathe. Breathing is really important,” Midler said.
