The news of Maya Jama and Stormzy getting back together delighted us as we saw smitten recent snaps of them lapping up the sunshine in Greece. The pair were glowing, smiling ear to ear and looked happier than ever, proving that sometimes distance makes the heart grow fonder.
A lot of times, if things don’t work out between two people, it doesn’t mean that they’re not meant to be.
In fact, it means that they both need time apart, do the work on themselves and figure out what steps need to be taken to make the relationship work a second time around. Sometimes, it truly is a case of people realising just how good they had it in a relationship, which they initially thought stood the test of time.
And in the case of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, it took a nearly twenty-year break for them to clock that were meant to be together all along.
Some celebrity couples who have gotten back together are now stronger than ever after ironing out issues that once proved to be a problem, such as Hilary Duff & Matthew Koma and Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel. Meanwhile, time apart from Behati Prinsloo left Adam Levine pining for her, as did Dax Shepard for Kristen Bell after he split with her to date someone else.
Nonetheless, lessons have most certainly been learnt, and relationships have flourished during a second, and sometimes even third, shot at love. So join us as we look at eleven couples who overcame a rough patch to get back together and are now more in love than ever before.
