Clark Gable and Carole Lombard.
They first met in 1932 while making No Man of Her Own together, but neither showed much interest in  the other. They met again in 1935 while Gable was no longer living with his wife and Lombard had just divorced William Powell. At his time they fell deeply in love with one another even calling each other Ma and Pa. They married after Gable received a divorce from his wife. Their love ended when in 1942 a plane that Lombard was on crashed killing her.

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.
They meet at a Hollywood studio while filming To Have and Have Not. The still married Bogart was 44 and Bacall was 19. Bogart managed to receive a divorce and they married in 1945. They were together until Bogart death from cancer in 1957.

Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.
They were first paired on screen in Woman of the Year in 1942 and would appear together in 9 movies. Tracy, a devote Catholic, would not end his marriage and they loved in secret, until he separated from his wife. He never divorce, but they became partners off-screen as well as on.

Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman.
Even after being together for nearly 50 years, the two were still in love when he died. Woodward once said the reason for the success of their marriage, “One reason is he makes me laugh every day.” The fact they lived in Conn. away from Hollywood, may be another reason. (Edited to reflect the death of Paul Newman on September 26, 2008)
