The couple met at John Burroughs High School in Burbank. “I met her, and there was never anybody else.” They married in 1975 and have four children, all in show business.
They’re also proud of their five grandchildren.
They Are More in Love Than Ever
Bono told Dublin Live news, “Ali and I are probably more in love now than when we got together.” He praised their relationship saying, “I don’t think it is given much credit, but when people work through their problems and stay together—Ordinary Love is that.” Referring to the song, he added that he hopes it is interesting to write genuine love songs, songs that are about more than the initial passion. His song “Sweetest Thing” was famously inspired by Ali.
Ali is a businesswoman and a long-time anti-nuclear advocate. She contributed to a documentary film about the Chernobyl disaster and has been a patron of Chernobyl Children’s Project International since 1994.
Ron Howard and Cheryl Alley
“I felt really lucky when we met. It’s crazy". Showbiz couple Ron and Cheryl Howard married in 1975, and Howard knows the secret to a happy marriage.
When asked how they've managed to stand the test of time, Ron says, “You have to learn to communicate and have difficult conversations in constructive ways.”
This Couple First Met in Grade School!
Lauren Akins and Thomas Rhett knew each other in the first grade. When they were 13, they went to church camp together, and when they were both 15, they started dating.
While they did not date long, this meant-to-be couple could not say goodbye and decided to be best friends instead. They stayed best friends until they married at age 22. Now, they have three biological daughters, as well as an adopted one from Uganda.
Both Had Serious Relationships in Between
“I almost married someone else, and she did too,” Thomas explained during a CBS This Morning interview. It was Lauren’s dad who intervened. Thomas’ future father-in-law told him, under no uncertain terms, “If you don’t come over here tonight and tell Lauren how you feel about her, then I’m going to tell her how you feel about her.”
As soon as Lauren broke her engagement, Thomas said he went for it. He “moved in for the kill,” he said. Adding, “We kissed and that was it. We dated for probably six months, and we got engaged.”She’s been an inspiration for his hit songs “Marry Me” and “Die a Happy Man.” The chart-topping country tunes share their special love story. Thomas says, “We love to let people in on our lives and be an example of what it means to be in love.”
