What else could possibly be more lovely than this?
As he and his wife, Sheryl Berkoff, commemorated their wedding anniversary with a touching social media message.
Rob Lowe expressed his unending “gratitude” for being married to her.
Lowe, 59, wrote: “Today marks 32 years married to this beautiful, inspiring, nurturing, strong, industrious, sexy, and wonderfully unique woman.”
He continued, “I am SO grateful for the day she said she’d join me on our amazing life journey together. Happy Anniversary, Baby!!”
The couple – who wed on July 22, 1991 – have two sons, Matthew, 30, and John, 28.
The actor opened up to presenter Bruce Bozzi on an edition of the iHeart podcast Table for Two about some of the techniques that have helped their successful three-decade union.
It’s crucial to pick the appropriate spouse, Lowe said, adding: “It’s all about who you choose… Sheryl was and is my best friend. Therefore, you are already at a disadvantage if you marry someone who isn’t your best friend. Because that will continue even when the other stuff fluctuates.
He also emphasized how crucial forgiveness is to building enduring relationships, adding: “People say marriage takes work. I’m not sure if it takes work… But what it does take is forgiveness. And being really cognizant of what hill you’re willing to die on.”
The St. Elmo’s Fire actor stressed the need of sticking together during trying times while noting that every partnership has its difficulties. He said: “I think the minute things go south for whatever reason it could be… many many many reasons, I think people can go, ‘Oh, I knew it. This, this is bad. This is a mistake. That marriages don’t work.’ Everybody has those dark periods.”
Lowe added: “When they come, and they do, just like a career, everyone has periods where it’s not happenin’ like you would like it… Life is like that, it’s ebbs and flows… You just can’t bail on the ebbs. ‘Cause eventually it’ll turn around if you’re with the right person.”
Well, I do think the happy couple deserves to be congratulated!
