Pierce Brosnan, most popularly known for his role as James Bond, has always been a charmer on screen. Despite his numerous romantic flings in movies, his off-screen relationship with actress and wife Keely Shaye Smith is the best. They recently completed 25 years of blissful marriage and they are still just as enamored to each other.
The couple is still madly in love with each other as Brosnan went on Instagram and shared a cute photo of them looking at each other with adoration, with the caption: “Thank you for the love, my love of these past 25 years, onwards.”
The start of a beautiful relationship
The lovebirds have known each other for a long time, meeting for the first time in Cabo San Lucas where Smith, then a TV journalist, went to interview Ted Danson, in 1994. The interview failed but she met Brosnan at a party and things changed completely from then onwards. In 2001, after seven years of courtship, the couple got married at the 785-year-old Ballintubber Abbey, Ireland.
They have kept the sparks aflame and are still deeply attracted to each other simply because they put in the effort to make the relationship work. They don’t shy away from affection and make sure to spend time with each other. Brosnan once told People magazine that on a trip to Santa Barbara, they were engrossed in a heartfelt conversation and no distractions, which makes all the difference.
The spark never dies
When asked about his wife, he couldn’t stop gushing about her and admitted that he genuinely admires her passionate nature and can’t imagine his life without her. She fills his life with soulfulness and beauty and Brosnan has constant heart eyes for her. Their love reminds us of the giddiness and sweetness of high school romance, something we feel gradually diminishes as we grow older. However, Brosnan and Smith have shown to the world that if you truly love each other, the spark never dies.
The couple has had a fairytale romance and it is made even more beautiful by their two sons: twenty-one years old Dylan and seventeen years old Paris.
Being there for each other
It is not easy to make a marriage last if you do not work to make it beautiful. The key is to not take your partner and the happiness you both share for granted, to cherish your life with them and to make sure you never let an argument fester beyond repair. It would be foolish to expect that relationships would be absolutely perfect and that it will be a bed of roses.
Problems will indeed arise but you must believe in your love and fight for your relationship. Brosnan and Smith are one of those rare celebrity couples who has stayed together and happily for such a long time, despite their work pressure and constant interference of the media. They love each so much that they could not imagine not being with each other. Best wishes to this lovely couple! Cheers!
