Hollywood actor Michael Douglas has opened up on why his marriage to fellow actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has been a long and happy affair.
The pair have been married for 19 years and Douglas was quite frank in an interview with US Weekly as to the reason behind the happy union.
I think it just comes out of courtesy. You know, I think sometimes we take the person closest to us for granted. I would say sometimes that we make more of an effort with strangers than we do with the person who’s closest to us. And I’ve always tried to remember how fortunate I am and what an extraordinary lady she is and daily remember that kind of respect.Michael Douglas
