Celebrity marriages are often the talk of Hollywood. From the outlandish rings, dresses, and wedding receptions, Hollywood weddings and marriages always seem to captivate everyone. In most cases, Hollywood marriages consist of two celebrities who are extremely famous and well-known: Jay-Z and Beyonce, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Brad and Angelina and so on. However, some celebs choose to not compete for fame in their household and instead turn to high school sweethearts and everyday non-celebs for matrimony. Here are 14 celebs who married common people.
