Hopping on to 2018, it has been 23 years since the couple got married. Throughout these years, they have worked together and have appeared at numerous events looking like a royal couple. 

There have been no rumors about them splitting or getting a divorce, but the pair themselves have claimed that since they work together and have a very hectic schedule, they have had issues in their marriage. 

In 2014, Daily Mail shared in an article that the couple did not sleep together and instead preferred going to a hotel during weekends to spend time together. Well, this was not because they did not love each or were planning to split but because they wanted to save their marriage. 

The couple claimed that making time for themselves and having space made their relationship better and they just needed time for themselves. 

One way or the other, being happily married is better than getting divorced. Good for them.
