Debbie Allen And Norm Nixon Talk About 32-Years Long Marriage

Date December 6, 2017

Marriage is a beautiful thing but staying married is perhaps more important than getting married. And with the trend of marriages breaking up faster than we could have imagined, it’s a thing of joy to see couples who stay married for decades.

It is even more beautiful when the couple involved is a celebrity couple since they seem to be more hit with the relationship failure bug.

Meet The Super Couple

Norman Nixon, the 62-year-old retired professional basketball player, and his actress and dancer wife Debbie Allen were in the news last year for celebrating their 32nd wedding anniversary.

Debbie on the other hand is best known for her work on the 1982 musical-drama television series, "Fame," where she plays the role of a dance teacher Lydia Grant.

Apparently, Debbie Allen is not just a choreographer, television director, and producer. She seems to have a few tricks it takes to keep a home under her sleeves as well.

More fun????

Mixing Marriage, Business, And Parenthood

Debbie has an amazing career is a well sought after person for her many talents and skills. However, the actress, choreographer, writer, and producer, who has 2 Emmys and a Golden Globe award to her credit, says none of those bring her joy and happiness like her marriage to Norman Nixon and being a mother.

To celebrate their anniversary, the couple chattered a yacht in Marina del Rey and dubbed the celebration the #WhiteParty.

Their Secret Sauce

If there is anything we can learn from this couple’s successful love story, it is the fact that they kept their love and family first and at the center of everything. Nothing mattered more than their family to both of them, hence their staying together all these years.

Congrats to the ABC star and her man for coming this far and we wish them many more years together.
