Despite living their marriage in the public eye, with all the challenges that this brings, these couples are making it work. They share their secrets with Promise Twinamukye
Celebrity couples do not have it easy when it comes to making a marriage work. The limelight ensures privacy is never fully met, and busy work schedules are bound to take time away from the happy couple.
However, while many celebrity marriages fail, there are plenty of famous couples who have stayed together despite the challenges.
The key is not to have the time, but to make the time for their partners in order to keep that close bond going even when work dictates you must be away from your partner for long periods of time.
hese couples also share their Valentine’s Day plans.
Mathew and Eleanor Nabwiso (Married nine years)
This year is our 10-year wedding anniversary.
Good communication and being friends has kept us going for this long. It is the small details that we as friends put into consideration that remind us that we are a priority to each other. We confide in each other a lot so I know he has my back.
Marriage is what you make it. Is it a bed of roses? Yes because we made it a point to make sure it remains a bed of roses. We talk about our issues and say sorry where we must. We have aligned our responsibilities as a couple, friends and as parents so, we do not need to remind each other what we must do.
When we get misunderstandings, we choose to make corrections with a positive attitude and to help each other grow and make sure we are good in our different departments. Personally, I do not stay mad for long. I like to talk about an issue immediately and get it solved. Mathew always says, “we are in this for the long haul so you have to forgive me and we move on” which gets me laughing and I remember I cannot make a small issue look so big. All it takes is “sorry”.
February is a busy month for us. Mathew’s birthday is on the fourth and mine is on the 24th. So, Valentine’s Day coming in between is only a bonus. We always celebrate with family because to us, it is a day to celebrate love, even with the children. So, dinner or a getaway with the children is always our plan and will be the same this year.
