My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Staying married is tough enough for ordinary people. But in the midst of all the temptations of Hollywood, it’s sometimes impossible. That’s why we’re all the more impressed with these couples who have made a life together. Here's how they did it:

Martin Sheen and Janet Templeton: Weather the Tough Times Together

Sheen, 71, and his wife are approaching their 50th anniversary this year. Although Sheen’s struggled with alcoholism, and the couple’s son Charlie has had a few notorious blowups, they’ve remained together through the hard times. And he values her as much as life itself. Though he’s famously liberal, Sheen is pro-life because Templeton was conceived as the result of a rape, and he once told an interviewer that if abortion had been available at the time, she would never have been born.

Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens: Choose Carefully

Douglas, 94, and his wife have the longest-lasting marriage in Hollywood – 57 years. Douglas credits that to his steadfast, supportive wife – “You can tell a lot about a guy by the woman he marries.”
