Tom Hanks Shares The Secret For Wedded Bliss — It’s Simpler Than You’d Think!

Tom Hanks is definitely an actor on the top of the entertainment food chain. Not only for his incredible roles spanning decades of hit films, but because his personality is beyond likable – he’s a solid guy!

So you’ve got to assume that he entered a marriage that is just as candid and warm as he is. Well, he did. He’s been with his wife and fellow actor Rita Wilson for nearly three decades after falling in love on the set of the 1985 comedy Volunteers and marrying in 1988. But, when asked on the red carpet about his 34-year-long marriage, Mr. Hanks had an answer that is simply “untouchable.”

“When we first looked at each other there was definitely a kind of a, ‘Hey, this is the place!’ I felt that anyway,” Hanks told Entertainment Tonight. “I think the end result is that we got married for all the right reasons.”

Elaborating further about the right reasons, he said, “We just like each other. You start there.”

“Life is one thing after another and it’s actually more pleasant to be able to go home with someone you like to spend time with in order to get with it,” he said.

The summation of their untouchable marriage: They got married for all the right reasons! And within that, they truly like each other. It’s a lesson we can all learn from!
