It is really difficult to keep a marriage. People are different, but when it comes to men and women these differences become striking. Yes, it is really difficult to maintain peace with your second half. Recent stats show that over 50% of marriages in the US are broken within the first 4-5 years of living together. These are sad stats. Perhaps, you have heard about coples with the longest marriages. Folks living together for 50-60 years have a lot to share.
As known, people in Hollywood rarely have long marriages. Actors and film directors are polygamous, at least some of them. Thus, usually, marriages do not last for more than 2-3 years. Celebrity couples that managed to keep their marriages unhindered, deserve some peculiar attention. This is what I am going to focus on in this post. It’s my list of celebrity couples with long lasting marriages.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Everyone knows Sarah Jessica Parker. If you haven’t watched Sex and the City, you should do it in the near future. The actors began dating in 1992, and it took them 5 years to finally get married. They are parents of three children, and are a happy couple right now. It’s not that they never had any conflicts and marriage problems. However, they are still a couple. Sara explains the secret of a strong marriage as refusal to talk about the relations. It’s a weird way to maintain great relations, but it works for them. Good luck, Sarah and Matthew!
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
That’s a lovely couple! The two rock stars (yes, they are!) first met at a show in 1995. Bush and No Doubt were incredibly popular at that time. Gwen and Gavin got married in 2002 in London. By the way, these folks did face serious issues with their marriage, especially when it turned out Gavin had a daughter from a previous romance. Stefani is proud of their marriage, although admits that has never been an easy path. Indeed, it’s not easy to remain a couple if both partners are gifted musicians.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith is so popular! He’s not just an incredibly actor, but a perfect husband and a father. Their romance started in 1990. Actually, Jada auditioned for the part in the sitcom. She failed to get the part, but found a husband instead.
The couple accounts their long lasting marriage for 100% honesty. Will used to say that his wife is the second person he could completely trust after his mother. It’ such a beautiful couple, isn’t it?
Kelly Preston and John Travolta
When these two people met they were both in relationships. However three years later they started dating, and have not spent 21 years in marriage. In 2009 their son died, but they couple was strong enough to keep going and gave birth to a third child. John and Kelly keep saying that they have changed over the years, and the secret of a successful marriage is to adapt to these changes.
