Saturday Night Live (SNL) is surely known for bringing umpteen laughs to viewers, but it’s also brought many stars together. From old-school SNL veterans to more recent stars, many late-night stars who are part of the cast, met their significant others while working on the NBC show. And while a few relationships crashed and burned out, others have remained strong and unbreakable. Let us review some successful and unsuccessful ones!
