An example is veteran star Michael Caine and his wife, Shakira. However, how did they meet?

Their first encounter

Caine first set his eyes on his wife back in 1971 when she starred in a coffee commercial. The 86-year-old saw the ad back then and was impressed that he said to his friend that they would travel to Brazil to find her.

The duo walked out hand-in-hand, and the ‘Italian Job’ star looked dapper in a navy blue shirt paired with black pants.

His longtime love looked years younger in an elegant black dress and had a cream shawl draped over her neck. She accessorized with a glittery handbag and rocked a pair of high-heeled sandals.

The secret of their longlasting union

While speaking to The Telegraph, Michael shared secrets to his longlasting marriage to Shakira. In his words:

"You start with two bathrooms. You never share a bathroom with your wife. Otherwise, you have a little tiny corner with a razor and a toothbrush in it, and you never get in there.”

Also, he attributed seeing his wife as an equal, not a subordinate as one of the things that have kept their union this long.
