They’ve made no secret that they’ve had to work at their marriage, even taking a few months break in 2013.However, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 46, admits she and husband Michael Douglas, 71, were prepared to put in hard work during their rocky moments and are grateful they persevered.
Speaking to the March issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, the Welsh actress reflected on celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary last November.
She enthused: ‘It was great. Just the two of us at one of our favourite restaurants, laughing that we haven’t killed each other yet – and that we are still alive! Fifteen years is a long time. You’ve got to keep the home fires burning!
‘It’s a long road and I think people today are so quick to throw in the towel on marriage. You have to give it your best shot and not give up when the first problem arises, because that won’t be the last problem. There will be many more down the road.’
The pair had a rough few years which saw the actor fighting throat cancer and Catherine being diagnosed with bipolar II disorder.
