When you’re in a relationship, there are lots of things that may seem drastic and terrible to outsiders, but that you see as merely an unfortunate part of the package that comes with your loved one. For some couples, that thing is being cheated on. While there will always be couples that broke up immediately after an alleged infidelity crept up on their relationship, the ones that are the most intriguing are those who did the opposite: who put their heads down and just weathered the storm… together. (The second-most interesting kind of couple is the kind who breaks up because of cheating, but then finds their way back to one another, eventually.)
The tabloids may have been printing cheating scandal after cheating scandal about their relationships and some of the rumors may have ACTUALLY been true. However, these ten celebrity couples didn’t let a scandal stand in the way of their true love… at least for a little while:
Liam Hemsworth & Miley Cyrus
While their engagement was still fairly new, Liam and Miley began to find themselves on the receiving end of multiple cheating reports. One specifically stood out for the couple: that Liam had been sexting January Jones. But they stayed together for a while after these claims, until the untimely #Miam split of 2013.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Kim and Kanye have remained rock-solid, despite tons of rumors that Kanye had cheated on Kim with everybody and their mother. (Even her little sis, Kendall!)
In fact, this relationship started out being associated with infidelity, as it's still suspected that Kimye unofficially began while Kim and Reggie Bush were still an item (before Kris Humphries ever entered the picture).
John Legend & Chrissy Teigen
A couple of years back, there were reports that John was caught making out with a mystery blonde lady in NY, to which Chrissy lashed out publicly. Who didn't she lash out at, though? Her hubby, John, who's she's still happily married to, and expecting a baby with.
Alicia Keys & Swizz Beats
Swizz was in hot water after being outed for direct messaging a fitness model. He attempted to get out of the dog house in the public eye by assuring everyone that he'd done it for his wife, Alicia. But she apparently didn't need convincing, as their bond was never shaken by the scandal.

Fergie & Josh Duhamel
The couple all but confirmed that, in the beginning of their marriage, Josh had cheated on Fergie with a stripper. But they claim that, instead of tearing them apart, it's made them stronger as a family and a couple.

David & Victoria Beckham
Way back in 2004, David's personal assistant claimed that they had a fling together. If you'll notice, David and Victoria were very much so together at that point. But guess what? They still are, and hopefully will be forever, because they're perf.

Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert
Blake and Miranda's marriage was plagued by cheating rumors, which even seemed to successfully penetrate the couple's trust, as they once admitted that they surveilled each other's cell phones.
We guess the final cheating accusation, that Miranda cheated with FIVE men, was the straw that broke the camel's back. Because, before that, they continued on in marital bliss, despite the media firestorm surrounding their alleged infidelity.
Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick
SJP was victimized by rumors that Matthew had stepped out on her, to which she responded with an even more assured and confident image of her marriage and family life. However you can make it work, we guess!

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton
During his hellish publicity year, Robin was even photographed basically cheating on his wife, Paula, by grabbing another chick's butt. But it took much more than a few photographs to finally split these childhood sweethearts up.
Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith
For almost as long as they've been the power couple that they are, there have been rumors of their coupledom ending due to cheating. However, Jada says that Will "knows that [she] wouldn't cheat on him," and it would seem that he genuinely does, since they're still together, after all.
