Marriages between superstars in Hollywood are typically fraught with problems and are short-lived. There are just so many pressures and temptations that come along with fame and fortune in the entertainment business. This is why it is refreshing to see how some couples have weathered the storms of tempestuous romance and the trials and tribulations of being together to stay happily married for many years.
Once such successful case of continued love is the long-standing marriage of Ryan Reynolds and his lovely wife Blake Lively. A possible reason for this enduring relationship with may be credited to the terrific sense of humor that Reynolds has, which is evidenced by him making self-deprecating jokes about himself on late-night talk shows. Recently, Reynolds appeared on the Stephen Colbert Show and complained that the host should never have a “huge a**hole” like himself on the show.
EOnline noted that the Reynolds family trades comedic barbs at each other with their fans on Twitter. With that much hilarity, there is probably not much time left over to get irritated with each other. Breaking up doesn't make much sense when everyone in the family is laughing, and the Reynolds family really does have a good time. They enjoy life to the fullest without becoming so self-absorbed with stardom and attention.
When the irritating rumors pop up in the tabloids that the couple is on the way to “Splitsville,” Reynolds is known to make public jokes about it, saying that he wishes he was in need of more “me-time.” The idea that they two would break up is ridiculous. They have been almost inseparable since they got married in 2012, and have never gone more than one week without being together as they prefer to always do everything while at each other’s side.
They even choose movie roles so that they can both advance their careers on a rotational basis and always travel as a family to sets. This strategy has proven to be incredibly successful because the lack of instant-availability keeps them both in high-demand, career-wise.
The couple is happiest when they spend quiet time away from the phones and pressures of movie stardom, as they hang out at their beautiful home located in upstate New York. They credit the success of their marriage by becoming best friends first before being seriously romantically involved.
