8. Secret to Happiness

After more than 20 years together, the pair are one of the beacons for what a successful, famous couple looks like and when Parker began starring in HBO’s series Divorce in 2016 she couldn’t help but realize how unlike her own life it was. In an interview years before she said, “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of that there’s this whole other world that I love.” Broderick even opened up about their secret to happiness at the premiere of Divorce. “Listen to her. You know, that helps. Give her a little present every now and then. Just be kind to her.” He added that “communicating” was also very important and never go to bed angry.

7. Staying Private

Over the course of their many years together, the pair have been praised as one of Hollywood’s best couples, but also the victim of many rumors about splits and an unhappy marriage and that is because they keep everything private, the good and the bad. When asked about how the two stars keep their personal lives so private, Parker said, “The secret is, we don’t discuss it. To reporters or anybody else. That’s it! We don’t hold it up as an example and we don’t air our dirty laundry.”
