What can we Learn From Colin Firth about “not cheating”?
In today’s hit and miss Hollywood marriages you would be hard pressed to find one that lasts for more than a few years, some don’t even make a few weeks. But there are some that manage to survive the Cheating Web. Colin Firth and his lovely wife Livia Giuggoli happen to be one of the surviving couples.
For those of you that don’t know it already I have had a major crush on Colin Firth for many years. Who says virtual relationships don’t last? Of course Colin or his absolutely stunning Italian wife Livia Giuggol don’t know and it’s probably better that way. 🙂 But what’s not to like? His sexy British accent, that dry sense of humor, his modest, charming demeanor, great sense of style, twinkling eyes and contagious smile. Sigh! I digress, he’s my fantasy not my reality and I do know the difference! 🙂 The reality is they are both too very lucky people who seem to understand the value of appreciating each other and what it takes to make a relationship work.
Every time you see Colin with his lovely wife Livia he seems legitimately happy and proud to be with her and she with him. Colin opened up to on Piers Morgan’s talkshow on the secrets to a lasting Hollywood marriage, revealing that “he’d never be unfaithful to his wife” and why he finds it “easy not to cheat”.
Upon being asked by Piers as to how he avoids “the shallow pitfalls of temptation” the actor replied:
“It does actually help to realize that however stunning the person is, you know, fluttering their eyelashes at you, she doesn’t do anything to match up to your wife.”
“Maybe it’s shallow of me, to have a wife that’s so beautiful,” he added. “But it makes things easier.”
“She’s the most beautiful woman in the world.” And obviously he believes it!
“We’ve made it 15 years together, I think that’s pretty good going by Hollywood standards,” he said. “And it’s going to go on forever.”
“The real secret to a happy marriage is simply spending time together” – despite their hectic working lives.
“We are crazy about each other,” he continued. “But the real secret is TIME – we have to make sure that we spend enough time together.”
“Every relationship in life you’re going to have to take care of.”
Sigh! No wonder he is my choice, as a Matchmaker only a true man would be my fantasy! I understand how important it is to have a fabulous loving, committed, appreciative partner that would cherish me and not just be my lover. I want my partner to think I am the most beautiful woman in the world, no matter what! Because I totally understand when you really appreciate each other you won’t cheat! Why? Because you know you have the best and why would anyone want to ruin that? So Colin will continue as my fantasy only because the truth is if he ever cheated on his beautiful wife he wouldn’t be anymore because that’s what makes him My Fantasy.
The bottom line is, it is possible to have a healthy happy relationship even in Hollywood but you really do need to pick the right one. Someone you adore, that adores you, is committed to making it work and is willing to put in the Time it takes to really show each other how much you appreciate them. If you believe you have the best you will treat them like they are!
Even though Colin is my unattainable fantasy (sigh) I wish them a long and happy life together. I am so happy for them, they are making the effort and deserve it.
