There's no secret; it is just hard work and commitment, according to Patricia Heaton. 'Marriage is a really wonderful thing, but as hard as I had to work to get where I am professional, I've had to do the exact same thing in a marriage,' she told Parade in 2014. 'It's tough to be with one person for the rest of your life when you both grow at different rates and in different directions. You have to figure out how to grow differently 'together.'
'There's a misconception that romance you had when first married is supposed to be there all the time,' Patricia Heaton added. 'Or that's a sign the marriage is over or that you no longer love each other. When things get tough, you have to be able to withstand the pressure. I'm a big proponent of marriage counseling.'
