In order to bolster you on your journey into senior dating, it’s important to think positively. In this instance, that’s recalling the celebrities who – in the midst of blink-and-you-miss-it relationships and marriages and messy divorces down Hollywood way – have managed to stay hitched (and happy!) despite all the nuptial chaos around them. Here are three glowing examples.
Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon
Married since 1988, this Hollywood power couple has only paired up together in a mere handful of films – including 2004’s The Woodsmen – preferring, rather, to pursue their own individual projects. Since it’s said that maintaining your own identity and interests helps make your relationship more successful rather than less, perhaps these two could be the poster children for that theory. Sedgwick and Bacon have two children together, Travis, born the year after their marriage, and Sosie, who has joined her mother on The Closer.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
While it was his second marriage, Tom Hanks’ union with actress Rita Wilson has proved to be a true love story. They married in 1988 after meeting on several TV and film sets (namely Bosom Buddies and Volunteers) and their marriage has achieved legendary status since. The pair is known for their affectionate, good-humored relationship, and have two children together.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are an excellent example of how much work marriage takes. Together since 1971, and married since 1982, this iconic couple – who starred together most memorably in the film version of Matilda – shocked everyone in 2012 when they announced their separation. Yet by March 2013, sources indicated that the split had been called off and the two had reconciled.
Dating for 50 plus singles might seem daunting, and most celebrity relationships don’t offer much inspiration in the way of loyalty and long-lasting fidelity. Yet there are situations where two people, who were obviously meant for each other, fell in love and made it work for decades.
