Marriage is a special bond most people take seriously, and hope to live with one person till the rest of life. Unfortunately often people can’t make it work, and end up divorcing and keeping searching for a perfect person. But maybe a perfect person does not exist, and marriage is not just sacred vows, honeymoon and breakfast in bed. It is more – commitment to each other during good and bad times, and unconditional love.


Looking for a secret ingredient within long-termed marriages, we chance upon famous Hollywood couples who shared not one decade together. They were generous enough to share their wisdom and look upon marriage and relationships.

Obviously, they have managed quite well. Sarah explains that it is important to understand that marriage is not going to be like honeymoon forever, but “it is not about that, it is about feeling invested in someone in a way that you never expected”.
