One of the most beautiful aspect of marriage is that it can stand the test of time along with many struggles this life can bring. In Hollywood, where wedding are mostly short-lived, Jeff Bridges and his wife Susan Geston are a true testament to love and commitment.
Bridges shared in a 2105 interview with OWN, “I can’t let this woman go.” The story of their proposal is also so adorable.
When he got down on a customary one knee to propose, Geston said, “Okay, when?” to which Bridges’ response was priceless. He simply asked, “How about Thursday?”
That was over 41 years ago now. Bridges shared his beautiful journey with Reader’s Digest in 2006.
He wrote, “I’m the guy who makes the buck but she’s the one who takes care of everything else. I really am more in love with her than ever.”
One decade he said such beautiful things about his wife, nothing really seems to change. He recently told Jimmy Kimmel in 2017, “It was love at first sight.”
Setting major couple goals, the media houses are bound to ask for certain pearl of wisdom from this legend.When Associated Press asked how to get past the problems all couples face, Bridges opened up about his relationship with his wife.
He said, “This is a bump. Now let’s see if our love can grow to embrace this bump… the bump can serve to create more intimacy between us.”
After about 42 years of being together, their secret appears to be all about sticking with it despite hard times. He said, “If you change partners every time it gets tough or you get a little dissatisfied, then you don’t get the richness that’s available in a long-term relationship. My wife supports me and it makes me love her more.”
