Catherine Zeta Jones reveals secret to a happy marriage

Michael Kors - Backstage - Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Respect, space and sense of humor are the key things to a happy marriage, according to Catherine Zeta Jones. She and Michael Douglas have been married for 13 years and they have a strong healthy relationship despite a 25-year age gap.

Asked what their secret is, the actress responded: ”Respect, space and a sense of humor. We spend a hell of a lot of time together, so we are careful to maintain our space. We recently had an extension built, to house a closet. It’s like the Tardis – I go in there and never come out. My husband knocks on the door and says, ‘Can I come in?’ But I’ve got a TV in there, and my daughter brings her friends in – they play shop, put on all my stuff. I could be in there for the whole day, happily.”

He’s constantly looking at the calendar and meticulously checking dates and organizing weekends. I just wake up and say, ‘What shall we do today?’ I’m very spontaneous. Given the age difference, what’s remarkable is that we are so similar in so many ways. We have a laid-back, easy-going relationship,” she said.
