Fame has not changed the couple, who has been together since 1996. Each year has made their relationship stronger than ever, and now they bring up their three beautiful kids together as a strong couple.
Actress and fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Matthew Broderick's marriage is one of the few that keeps our hope in a "happily ever after" alive. The power couple has been together for 27 years and has been married for 22. While Sarah played the role of a single girl in the city in the hit show Sex and the City, at home she was a happy wife and later, a devoted mom. We rarely see them shower affection publicly, but when they do, it is heartwarming to see them going strong.
The couple, who has three children together, James Wilkie and twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha, via surrogate, is still intensely fond of each other and recently celebrated their 22nd anniversary.
"I do remember first meeting her…we went to a movie together," he said. "I still remember very clearly seeing her walk down the street toward the movie theater…it’s very unique, because I wouldn’t remember most people the first time I saw them come down the street. [But] I remember it as clear as day," Matrhew told Yes Network, but the lead of Ferris Bueller's Day Off took months to actually ask her out.
"My memory is that literally, months passed when I didn't ask her for a date," he told New York Times in 1996. "Your memory is correct," Parker had said, adding that he called her on February 1, 1992. She continued, "Then he left a very charming, very self-effacing message on the machine. You know, 'Hi, it's Matthew Broderick.' You had to use your last name."
Four years later, when they worked together for a Broadway show, both completely in love with theatre, Sarah was nervous and gushing about him. "He's probably the funniest fellow I've met in my whole life. He's so bright, so handsome. I think he's the most handsome man I've seen in my life. And he inspires me. I'm mad for him, totally," she said.
Despite being committed to each other for almost three decades, the couple had been unconventional about their wedding. She wore a black dress and the people who came to the wedding thought it was only a party.
"I never thought about a wedding dress. Never. Had not one daydream about it," she told People. "At one point I just simply remember thinking, 'God, I really hope he asks me to marry him.' I don't know when or why. It was fairly early on."
After being married for 22 years, one would think that the interest might wane a little, but they have their way of keeping things alive - date nights being one.
"We really are friends beyond everything else and we talk a lot," Matthew told Meredith Vieira. "She's really funny, she makes me laugh."
Sarah told People that after so many years, things have changed for the good. "You and your partner are going to change. It seems so silly, but I think you're very lucky if you like the person. I still just really like him. I'm sure I annoy him and he annoys me, but I literally learn about him every day," she said.
She doesn't hide her love for her husband at all. She is open and honest in showing the world how madly in love she is with him. "I love Matthew Broderick," Sarah declared in Harper's Bazaar in 2013. "Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We're very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he's the father of my children, and it's because of him that there's this whole other world that I love."
