  • Lamar Odom

    Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may not have dated long -- <a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/khloeacute_kardashian_lamar_odom_are/146292" target="_hplink">just over a month</a> -- before they <a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/khloeacute_kardashian_lamar_odom_are/146292" target="_hplink">tied the knot</a> in September 2009, but the NBA star has shown that he's completely committed when it comes to his wife. The couple makes sure to spend time together, even when they're apart -- as seen by Odom's <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/19/celebrities-twitter-star-_n_1205525.html" target="_hplink">constant tweets</a> to Kardashian, and <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/17/khloe-kardashian-lamar-od_n_1285373.html" target="_hplink">this emotional video</a> he sent to his wife on "The Talk" in February.

  • Hugh Jackman

    "X-Men" actor Hugh Jackman has been a dedicated husband to his long-time wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, for <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-body/news/hugh-jackman-my-wife-gets-upset-when-im-too-buff-2011310" target="_hplink">over 15 years</a> -- and he still gushes about her! In 2009, he <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/Oscars/story?id=6895832&page=1#.T6liU5_LzCE" target="_hplink">told Barbara Walters</a> that their marriage was as strong as ever, calling their relationship "mad love affair." "I'm madly in love with her ... more and more each day," he said of his wife, who is more than 10 years his senior. Jackman has proven himself to be a great dad as well -- we've seen <a href="http://www.justjared.com/2009/05/16/hugh-jackman-father-son-bonding-time/" target="_hplink">countless photos</a> of the busy actor <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2067446/Hugh-Jackman-takes-break-Broadway-school-run-wife-Deborra.html" target="_hplink">spending quality time</a> with the couple's two adopted children.

  • Tom Hanks

    Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson may be pushing <a href="http://todayentertainment.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/30/11476651-tom-hanks-rita-wilson-celebrate-24th-wedding-anniversary?lite" target="_hplink">24-years of marriage</a>, but the actor hasn't fallen out of love at all. "My secret to a happy marriage is just being married to the right woman," Hanks told <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20181781,00.html" target="_hplink"><em>People</em> in 2008</a>. "I got lucky with the wonderful Rita Wilson. I'm the luckiest man alive." Hanks hasn't <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/awww-tom-hanks-rita-wilson-caught-on-kiss-cam-201253" target="_hplink">exactly been shy about PDA</a> with his longtime love, either.

  • Jay-Z

    Jay-Z and Beyonce may be one of Hollywood's most well-known power couples, but they still keep their relationship grounded. The rapper and music mogul has been an incredibly supportive husband to Beyonce all throughout their <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20188764,00.html" target="_hplink">three-year-and-counting marriage</a> -- and especially during her recent pregnancy. In November 2011, <a href="http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-moms/news/beyonces-husband-jay-z-of-course-ill-change-my-babys-diapers-20111411" target="_hplink"><em>Us Weekly</em> reported</a> that the Jay-Z even joined her on her "partially vegan diet" during that time.

  • Tim McGraw

    Country star Tim McGraw may be one of the most romantic husbands on this list. The singer, who has been married to songstress Faith Hill for <a href="http://tasteofcountry.com/tim-mcgraw-faith-hill-marriage-pictures/" target="_hplink">over 15 years</a>, still finds time to plan out grand gestures to make his wife feel special. For Hill's 40th birthday, McGraw <a href="http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20221865,00.html" target="_hplink">hired out</a> a luxury yacht and threw her a surprise party on a Greek island. For their 10th wedding anniversary in 2006, McGraw set up a four-poster bed in a tent in a meadow on their Tennessee farm and rented a movie projector and screen. "There were roses everywhere and a big bonfire outside," <a href="http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20221865,00.html" target="_hplink">he told <em>People</em></a>. "She likes foreign films, so we laid in bed, ate steaks and watched foreign films all night."

  • Nick Cannon

    Although comedian and "America's Got Talent" host Nick Cannon <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20591201,00.html" target="_hplink">has been married</a> to diva Mariah Carey <a href="http://www.myfoxny.com/story/17891125/mariah-carey-and-nick-cannon-renew-wedding-vows-in-paris?clienttype=printable" target="_hplink">for four years</a>, that hasn't stopped him from talking about her in almost every interview he's given. "I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad," he <a href="http://omg.yahoo.com/news/nick-cannon-talks-enduring-love-mariah-carey-anniversary-193200759.html" target="_hplink">said to Yahoo! about his wife in 2011</a>. Cannon supported her throughout <a href="http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-03-07/news/31134051_1_mariah-carey-diet-jenny-craig" target="_hplink">her 70 lb. weight loss</a> following the birth of their twins in 2011. Cannon even presented Mariah with <a href="http://www.popeater.com/2011/05/13/nick-cannon-mariah-carey-necklace/" target="_hplink">with a personalized lavish diamond necklace</a> for her first Mother's Day. "Every day, my respect for Mariah continues to grow higher," he <a href="http://omg.yahoo.com/news/nick-cannon-talks-enduring-love-mariah-carey-anniversary-193200759.html" target="_hplink">has said in the past.</a>
