Ron and Cheryl Howard's love story was written in the stars. The two lovebirds found each other in high school and there was no looking back.

The future actor/director once shared that he instantly knew Cheryl was his soulmate, as no one could deny their instant connection:

I met her, and there was never anybody else.

And still, after over four decades of sharing their lives together, the ginger director has nothing but the warmest words for his beloved.

Ron Howard's secret to a smooth marriage

Looking at such a perfect couple as Ron and Cheryl we can't help but wonder: how do they do it? Well, their secret is quite simple and quite accessible. As Ron shared with PEOPLE magazine:

People say, ‘How’d you do it?’ There’s no technique. There’s no tactic other than communication is really important. You have to learn to communicate and have difficult conversations in constructive ways. Beyond that, there’s an element of luck because people either grow together or they don’t and I don’t think you can force that.

We imagine it's easy for Howard to keep their union intact since Cheryl seems completely perfect for him. The former Happy Days star added:

She’s unbelievably supportive and always has been. Our compatibility has endured through all kinds of experiences.

Their kiddos are perfect too

In addition to absolutely nailing this thing we all call marriage, Ron and Cheryl created a picture-perfect family. The couple shares four redhead children: Bryce Dallas (b. 1981), twins Jocelyn Carlyle and Paige Howard (b. 1985), and son Reed Cross (b. 1987).

By the way, Bryce Dallas Howard followed her father's footsteps and is a successful Hollywood actress. You might've seen her in such hits as Jurassic World (2015), The Help (2011), The Village (2004)and many others.
