Although Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson met in 1980 on the set of "Bosom Buddies," where Hanks had a starring role and Wilson was guest starring, they didn't begin a relationship until a few years later while working together on the movie "Volunteers." They married in 1988 at Wilson's church--Hanks converted from Catholicism to Wilson's religion, Eastern Orthodox Christianity, for the occasion—and the couple went on to have two children. Wilson also became stepmother to Hanks’s two children from a previous marriage.
So how do they keep their marriage strong? "We always make each other laugh, have honest communication, and I never take him for granted," Wilson told FoxNews.
Meanwhile, Hanks opened up to People Magazine about his relationship, saying, "My secret to a happy marriage is just being married to the right woman. I got lucky with the wonderful Rita Wilson. I'm the luckiest man alive."
Now isn't that the sweetest thing you've ever heard?
