Hugh Jackman Reveals Secrets to His Happy Marriage
Thu 15-08-2013

Hugh Jackman has been married to actress Deborra-Lee Furness for 17 years!

In an interview published in Good Housekeeping's August 2013 issue, Hugh Jackman said that after meeting on set in 1995, he and Deborra were "best mates... We just clicked."

Since marrying in 1996, they have maintained a rule to not be apart from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and said they "talk about everything all the time."

"The bedrock of any relationship is to communicate, and Deb and I have always done that, discussing whatever's going on, good or bad," he said.

Hugh Jackman also revealed his number one rule for romance: Surprise!

"Recently, I pretended I was still on the set. I called Deb and said, 'I'll be back late tonight.'" But he showed up hours before she expected him home. "And she got such a shock. I'd made reservations at our favorite lunch place. It was 3 hours before the kids finished school, and it was awesome because it was unplanned."
