Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld have one of Hollywood’s most enduring marriages. They got together almost two decades ago, and even though many assumed that their relationship wouldn’t last because of the controversy that initially surrounded it, these two seem to be as solid as they get. Since they are celebrating their wedding anniversary, here are some things you didn’t know about the power couple:
She met Jerry at the Reebok Sports Club shortly after she married Eric Nederlander, her boyfriend of five years, back in 1998. At the time, the tabloids claimed she had left her husband for Jerry, which caused quite the scandal, and Nederlander added fuel to the fire by vilifying Jessica to the press: “I was manipulated, misled and completely caught off guard by Jessica’s infidelity. Jerry and Jessica have no respect for decent values. They deserve each other.” Years later, Jessica told a very different story. According to her, her marriage was irreparably broken before she met Jerry and that she and Nederlander were in couples therapy, but she didn’t have the courage to leave him, so she stayed.
