We all know Tom Hanks from his many hit movies. He has been part of the public eye for decades, and is one of the most lovable celebrities out there. He has been married with another wonderful actress, Rita Wilson, for almost 3 decades. They met in the set of the 1985 comedy, Volunteers. Three years later they decided to tie the knot and get married. They have been happy ever since.
Hanks was asked about his secret to such a long and successful marriage. He answered saying that it is simply “untouchable.”
“When we first looked at each other there was definitely a kind of a, ‘Hey, this is the place!’ I felt that anyway,” Hanks tells Entertainment Tonight. “I think the end result is that we got married for all the right reasons.”
He then went on to say, “We just like each other. You start there.”
“Life is one thing after another and its actually more pleasant to be able to go home with someone you like to spend time with in order to get with it,” he says.
To sum it all up, the keys to a successful marriage are: to get married for all the right reasons, and to truly like each other, to enjoy being around each other.
This is a simple message Hank shared with everyone, but it’s such a powerful message as well.
