In today’s world of change and knee-jerk decisions, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the commitment of couples who withstand the test of time.
Much-loved actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson certainly fall into this category.
Over a period of three decades, Hanks and Wilson have supported each other through thick and thin, raised children and continued to provide the world with happiness and warmth.
When their 30th anniversary came around, Rita decided to pay tribute to her husband in the best way she knew how.
Prior to being a couple on the Hollywood A-list, Tom and Rita were just two common souls who found love in one another.
Hanks himself had recently divorced his first wife, Samantha Lewe, and was concerned about getting serious with another woman.
In an interview with the “Sooo Many White Guys” podcast, Hanks revealed just how he felt about Rita the first time he met her:
“I will say that right from the get-go, I thought there was something crazy great about her. I met her and I thought ‘Oh Lord’… there’s something cookin’ here.”
