In case of Deborra-Lee, Hugh had the feeling that they’re right together from day one. As he says:

I could just be myself. I am not saying we don't ever dress up or impress each other, but being comfortable is a key.

What is more, to keep relationship strong, the couple have a few agreements to follow. First, they never spend more than two weeks apart. Second, they don’t work at the same time if there’s no financial need in it. And finally, they like traveling and exploring world together.


After 21 years, Jackman is still madly in love with Furness. And with each year, their bond becomes only stronger and stronger.
