Date December 12, 2017

Mark Harmon and Pam Dawber have been married for 30 years already! They got married in 1987 on March 21st. Both of them are 60+ now.

Finally, the star of Mork & Mindy sheds some light on what she believes helps them with Mark to keep on rollin'.

"I don't think two people can work all the time in show business and stay married," says the actress.

When the celebrities just married, the two were at the peak of the fame.

I was a number one show. I had my own deal. I got to do Broadway. I got to do musical theater. I got to do cartoon voices. I did everything you can do in this business, and then I had children and it's like, 'I'm not going to chase this fame thing'.

However, Dawber gave up her career to raise two sons. Pam tries to keep them out of the media and Hollywood life. She likes her family life to be private.

I wanted to drive my kids to school. I wanted to be there for their birthdays and bring cupcakes and donuts and do the school festivals and all that, and I did. I got to teach in their art class and so it was a different life then and I was very happy to do it.

While Harmon stars on NCIS, his wife keeps their family's life out of the spotlight and press.

"Notice you don't see us in the magazines. When you're married, that's real life. And to go and plaster your kids... I'm sorry. I'm not for that," she says.

According to the actress, her kids haven't seen any of her work!

"I'm just their mom," she says. "They don't care about what I did. They care about what they are doing. They want their parents to care about what they are doing. Their father is already iconic enough for two boys. I am just the mom."
