10. Angela Bassett

When I got married, I was all in love, but then came life intruding in, and sometimes it’s difficult… I would look at my husband and ask, ‘Did we do it too quickly?' But my husband was strong in his resolve. He kept reminding me that people go through this, and that we were going to be OK.”

11. Megan Mullally

“‘F*ck’ seems like it’s key. We have a two-week rule. We’re never apart for more than two weeks. Just not being separated for Jurassic periods of time seems to help. And no children probably helps a lot.”

"Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.' I've gotten to a place where I really am just settled. Really. I know that I'm not going anywhere. She's not going anywhere. I'm not saying the relationship took a while; I'm saying in my life, it took a while to find this. Our priorities are each other, too. The word 'love' is thrown around. 'I love you' is great to hear, but you want to feel it. You want to feel that you're understood, and they know exactly who you are, and they know how to take care of you."

14. Jessica Biel

That's worked for us so far. I would never want to speak on anyone else's relationship, but that’s what we do.”

21. John Krasinski

The best days of my life started when I met my wife — that’s the truth, it’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card. She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league. And so all of a sudden all of the things I loved, I got to find someone who loved that about me… When you’re lucky enough to meet your one person, then life takes a turn for the best. It can’t get better than that.”
