Celebrity Marriages: Stars Whose Spouses Are 'Regular' People (PHOTOS)

When a celebrity marries a celebrity, it's expected. When a celebrity marries a "regular" person (as we like to call them), it's ... well, refreshing.

A-list stars like Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, Patrick Dempsey and Julie Bowen have all found love with spouses outside of the spotlight, and are all still in happy marriages. Doesn't that say something about celebrity love?

Take Reese Witherspoon, for instance -- she was previously married to fellow actor Ryan Phillippe, before the couple split in 2007. Then, following a romance with Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal, Witherspoon met talent agent Jim Toth and fell head over heels. The pair tied the knot in 2011 and welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Tennessee, in September.

Here are 15 other celebrities who married people outside of show business:
