18 Years And Counting: Michael Douglas Shares How He Keeps Things Fresh And Spicy With "Extraordinary" Catherine Zeta-Jones

Date September 13, 2019

Building a happy and lasting marriage isn't easy. But couples who have achieved this will always be an inspiration.

In November 2018, movie star Michael Douglas and his beloved wife Catherine Zeta-Jones celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary. In honor of the occasion, the actress posted a lovely black and white snap of herself smiling beautifully while her husband leaned in to seemingly whisper in her ear.

This was a little less than a year ago and now that they are about to celebrate their 19th anniversary in only a couple of months, it's nice to know that things are looking good.

How they make it work

In a recent interview with US Weekly, the 74-year-old actor shared how he and his wife have been able to make their marriage work all these years.

When asked how they pair have managed to keep things fresh and spicy, Michael explained that it's all a matter of "courtesy." He said that people often take their partners for granted and tend to make more effort with strangers than loved ones.

And I’ve always tried to remember how fortunate I am and what an extraordinary lady she is and daily remember [of] that kind of respect.

He also said that they keep things civil even when they disagree.

It’s taken me a long time but resentment is an easy thing to keep under the surface. I think most of the times it’s really good to get things out sooner than later.

Approving fans

Those who appreciate this couple's love for each other shared their views on social media.

We have a good feeling that these two will go all the way considering that they seem to have it all figured out.
