Date March 29, 2019 17:36

Sarah Jessica Parker is one of those actresses who has never lacked public attention. Her on-screen heroines became legends. Her stylish images and beautiful physical shape have been enthusiastically discussed all over the world. However, most of all, the public was interested in her relationship with talented and handsome Matthew Broderick.

In 2017, the couple who raised three children celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary, although their family suffered from several storms throughout their journey. What makes this union so unusual?

Very few people remembered that both actors started on Broadway. During the 80s and 90s, Sarah’s brothers had their own theater company. One of its first employees were Parker and Broderick. The girl had just recovered from a break with Robert Downey Jr., but Matthew almost immediately won her heart in 1991.

In 1997, the couple had a magnificent wedding ceremony, although the guests had no idea what format they would attend until they visited the event itself. The happy bride decided to make it even more unusual by Sarah wearing a little black dress and not a traditional white gown.

Although both were already over 30, they weren’t in a hurry to become parents. The couple’s firstborn, James Wilkie, was born only in October 2002.

Sarah and Matthew were constantly in the public eye, but they almost never spoke of their relationships and family life. Perhaps this was the reason for the rumors on this subject. In 2008, many publications were full of headlines about Broderick's cheating. The couple refrained from commenting and “disappeared” from the public view for some time. Rumors said the couple tried to save the marriage with the help of psychologists and family therapists.

However, in 2009 the couple welcomed charming twin girls, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge. By the way, the girls were delivered by a surrogate mother. At the same time, information about Matthew’s cheating still repeatedly appeared in the press. Moreover, some insiders also assured of the existence of tension between the spouses, but the reliability of this information was questionable.

Only in 2013, Sarah unveiled the mystery, carefully guarded over the years.

Matthew and I come from a different time and place. When we were young people, all we ever wanted was to be good working actors. We didn't think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream. So when our marriage came up in conversation, it wouldn't occur to us that we were obligated to respond to allegations or gossip.

Sarah and Matthew always raised children together and taught them to be loyal to each other and their family. Were the rumors at all true about Broderick’s cheating and Parker's aspirations to keep the marriage? We can’t really know. However, the couple revealed their secret of happiness: they always found time to be not parents, not actors, but just husband and wife.

All marriages are different. There is no reason to compare them. Sarah and Matthew’s union seemed happy no matter what is said about it. Perhaps, this made it particularly unique? What do you think?
