Anytime one of our beloved celebrities ties the knot, most of us create betting pools at work and chime in on how many months we think the marriage will last. Is this mentality a tad bit cynical? You bet. But when most celebrity marriages last what seems to be an average of 3 to 5 years, why wouldnt we be cynical. It would seem most things in Hollywood are smoke and mirrors, whats real and whats not real? Is Mr. X really in love with Mrs. Y, or is it some publicity thing? Well, take heart, because there are some love stories in LA-LA land that are the real deal and some celebrities who take their vows very seriously.
When Tom Hanks said I Do to his wife Rita Wilson, he obviously really meant it. Well, they both obviously really meant it, because they are going strong after 27 years of marriage. In Hollywood thats an eternity. So what is the couples secret to such a long-lasting relationship? Tom has said, My secret to a happy marriage is just being married to the right woman. I got lucky with the wonderful Rita Wilson. Im the luckiest man alive. Rita has said, Youve got to want to be married to the person youre married to.
