Keeping a marriage strong isn’t easy.
After a few years together, couples usually end up fighting over petty things. From household chores to budgeting, every single thing seems to cause problems.
Harrison Ford and his wife Calista Flockhart are a bit different from most couples.
Even after 20 years, they’re able to keep their marriage strong.
In fact, they still have that fire burning.
The couple knows the secret to a long-lasting marriage.
For Harrison, it’s to nod instead of speaking.
He tries his best not to disagree with his wife. As much as possible, he also tries to get all of his chores done.
They met back in 2002.
At that time, Harrison wasn’t looking for love. However, his feelings didn’t come as a surprise when he looks back at what happened.
Ever since the two met at the 2002 Golden Globe Awards, they’ve been inseparable.
After 8 long years of being together, they finally tied the knot in New Mexico.
Harrison proposed on Valentine’s Day and they got married in June 2010.
And they’re still going strong after all these years.
In 2015, Harrison was injured in a plane crash.
The accident was a huge challenge for the couple as he had to spend several days recovering in the hospital. Despite that, Calista remained by his side.
And even after what happened, she never lost trust in her husband’s skills and ability to fly planes. In fact, he likes doing it because he knows his wife loves it.
In an interview with People, he shared:
“Calista likes the process, she likes what she sees from the air, she likes seeing me happy. I think a lot of it has to do with that she loves to see me doing something that I love.”
It’s not Harrison’s first marriage.
In fact, he had actually been married twice. Unfortunately, both of them ended in divorce. He has kids from both marriages.
He has Ben who’s now a renowned chef. He also has Willard, a fitness enthusiast, and Georgia. The latter decided to follow in her dad’s footsteps and carve her own name in Hollywood.
Harrison’s youngest child is the sole kid of Calista.
Before they met, Calista adopted the child. After they started dating, Harry decided to make their family even more complete.
He adopted Calista’s son.
Harrison’s decision was received warmly by his eldest kids. Liam actually became Benjamin’s son’s best friend. The decision to adopt him improved his relationship with Ben.
Harrison Ford isn’t just an excellent actor in great films. If you take a closer look at his life, you’ll realize how family-oriented he is.
He didn’t just welcome a woman into his life and marry her, but he also made sure that her son wouldn’t feel left out. He wanted everyone in his circle to be family and that’s exactly what he did.
Together with his children from his past marriages, he’s able to keep his current relationship with his wife and son extra special.
