18. Elton John and David Furnish
Elton John was 66 years old when he married his longtime partner David Furnis on the ninth anniversary of their civil partnership in 2014.

The two's love story began at an impromptu dinner party. "I went back to my house in Windsor for a while, and I wanted meet new people so I rang up a friend in London and said, 'Could you please rattle some new people together for dinner here Saturday?'" Elton told Parade. One of the people invited was Furnish. "I was attracted to David immediately. He was very well dressed, very shy. The next night we had dinner."

Twelve years after that dinner party, John popped the question at another shindig they were hosting in one of their Windsor homes in 2005, cementing their relationship.
