Tom Hanks Has Been Married For 31 Years and He Reveals His Secret Of Happy Marriage
5Tom got converted
In order to show his love and respect for Rita and her family, before the wedding Tom gave up his faith and converted to Rita’s faith. There is no denying the fact that it was a big sacrifice as giving up your faith for someone means that you are pretty badly in love with the person.
6Always be there for your partner
Everybody wants a partner who supports him/her in every situation and Tom and Rita have been supporting each other completely in all the circumstances. In fact, in the year 1994 when Tom was awarded an Oscar for his superb work in Philadelphia, he thanked Rita from the stage as he said that he achieved it because of the woman with whom he lives and who makes him understand what love is, every day.
7The tough times
The toughest phase of their lives was when Rita was diagnosed with breast cancer. Rita was quite afraid thinking that how her husband will react after knowing about it and how it will change their relationship but Tom was like a great husband who constantly supported his wife.
In fact, these were the times when their relationship turned stronger and Tom once praised his wife for showing immense courage in difficult times. However, the good part is that Rita got rid of the disease pretty soon and that too without undergoing the chemotherapy.
8Loving their partner for what they are
It is being said that a true lover will love his partner for what he/she is and will not try to change the person. In the same manner, Tom said that the only thing that he knows is that Rita loves him whether he is fat or thin, he has hair on head or he is bald and this is why he calls himself as lucky person.
