Marriage they say is an institution and it takes patience, tolerance, respect and love to survive in such an institution and not many people have kept their heads above the water when it came to that. Most people think marriages are like scenes from a Hollywood romantic movie all sweet, rosy and beautiful but it’s not all that. Marriage has its own downsides but if you are ready to sacrifice and tolerate, the upsides will be like the peak of Mount Everest. I have seen some old folks strongly in love and if you ask them how long they’ve been married their answers will surprise you, that does not mean they have never had issues in their relationship, but a lot of self sacrifices and tolerance were personally ingrained into their marriages’ to keep it running and that is the lubricant that keeps the mechanism running efficiently. The old folks did not apply any special skills to survive in marriage; they just did the right things.

Hanks spoke with Oprah about his close bond with Wilson in a 2001 interview. He said, "There's such an advantage to being involved in the day-to-day details of each other's lives. It's a marvelous fabric to exist in."
These are the people who are supposed to be called the real husbands/wives of Hollywood.
"Marriage is a sacrifice and not a game,those who sees it as a game end up losing out."
