Being married for a long time often seems like a fairy tale – one that almost never happens in Hollywood. But thanks to people like Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks, who have proven that eternal love does exist, and it is possible to stay married to someone in the entertainment industry for over three decades and still be completely head-over-heels for each other.
Hanks once said that he is a lucky man because he got married to Rita. The couple got married in 1988. The real gem behind Hanks’ success can be contributed to Rita. The love story that started in the 80s has continued to wax stronger despite the many ups and downs of their lives.
Hanks sees Rita as the love of his life and they have this magical connection that is beyond what words can describe. Hanks has been able to do a lot of work in Philadelphia since he met his wife three decades ago. Without his bond with Rita, the actor may not be where he is today.
The couple’s marriage is one of those we celebrate around the world. Hanks first saw met Rita in 1972 during her first Television role and he had acted as a cheerleader.
