Will love prevail? Three celebrity couples and their chances at survival

September 20, 2018 — by Amanda Zhu

Different Engagents between Celebrities

TV actress Priyanka Chopra and singer Nick Jonas: The couple first appeared together at the Met Gala in 2017, but only started dating in late May. They became engaged at the end of July when Jonas, 25, rented out a Tiffany’s store to find Chopra, 36, the perfect ring.

Rating: 4.5/5 — They have met each other’s families multiple times. The couple had a traditional Indian engagement party per Chopra’s request, which shows respect and dedication on Jonas’s part. Love knows no age, but Chopra and Jonas do have a significant age gap — perhaps the biggest obstacle to their long-terms prospects.


Singer Ariana Grande and comedian Pete Davidson: Grande and Davidson met in March 2016 on “Saturday Night Live” and confirmed their relationship this past May. Grande was first seen wearing a ring on June 2.

Rating: 3/5 — Grande and Davidson seem smitten, and Grande said in an interview that they have the same sense of humor, but their quick progression from matching tattoos to getting engaged seems rushed. In addition, both were in serious relationships shortly before they started dating, so there is a risk that their relationship is a merely a rebound and not meant for “until death do us part.”


Singer Justin Bieber and model Hailey Baldwin: Baldwin first met Bieber in 2011 at his Never Say Never premiere as a fan, and rumors of the pair being linked romantically began in 2014 but were only confirmed in 2016. Contact between the two seemed to end after August 2016 and resumed in April 2018, when they were photographed together again. Their relationship was confirmed mid-June 2018, and Bieber proposed to Baldwin on July 8.

Rating: 3/5 — they’ve known each other for a long time, but their relationship has ended badly once before. In an interview with The Times UK, Baldwin said that there was a long period of time that they weren’t friends after their breakup, and there was “a lot of weirdness that went on.”
