There are those who say that reality is often stranger than fiction. And there are real-life love stories that are more incredible and inspiring than many seen on the big screen. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are living proof of that.

One of our early dates, a boxing fight in Vegas! You got me at round one. Happy Birthday darling.

There are several interesting and unique facts about this relationship, which is why many people bet against them making it. Catherine and Michael have been together for 17 years, despite their 25-year age difference! Not only that, this relationship almost never happened at all after Catherine rejected Michael, following their first conversation.

On top of all that, Catherine and Michael share the same birthday.

Catherine's initial reluctance didn't discourage Michael Douglas, who kept courting her, eventually making his beautiful acting colleague his wife. Today, the couple has two children from their marriage, who they've raised in spite of the challenges.

This couple has had to survive some very tough challenges, such as the throat cancer Michael suffered from in 2009, as well as the actress' bipolar disorder in 2011.

Happy Anniversary dearest Michael! Loving our life together, here's to the next 15! ❤️
