Colin FirthÂ’s secret to a happy marriage has been revealed. Colin, 50, has been married to Livia Giuggioli for fifteen years now. A marriage of such length is truly rare in showbiz, considering that Livia also works in the entertainment industry. While Firth is a well known actor, Giuggioli is an Italian director/producer.
The happy union of the two is not too hard to attain says Colin. The important things to remember is to set aside time for each other and to treat ones marriage like a Â“marathon.Â” What exactly does that mean, though?
Speaking about his happy marriage, Firth said, "We're very committed on a daily basis to how we deal with our family lives. But the real secret is time - we have to make sure that we spend enough time together. Every relationship in life you're going to have to take care of, there's a marathon factor to it."
Colin Firth also added that despite all the tempting women one may encounter, it is important to remember none of them measure up to oneÂ’s own wife. These are those little truths that everyone knows deep down inside but only a few live by. Too often men and women feel the work that goes into having a happy marriage is more burdensome than giving in to easy temptations. Hopefully, Colin FirthÂ’s wise words will be listened to those seeking a way to make their own marriages happier.
