Loving our life together, here's to the next 15!
" As for how the couple maintain their long-term relationship?
Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones appear more in love than ever just months after celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary together.
As the couple return to the romantic spot where Michael proposed on New Year's Eve 1999, we take a look back at their love story, which has endured various challenges over the last 17 years.
"He walked right past me, carrying his golf clubs." The two were seated next to each other at dinner that evening, and immediately bonded when they discovered they shared the same birthday. At one point in the evening, says a close friend: "Michael gave a toast and said how he'd known Catherine for a year and how much she meant to his life." But there were still no wedding bells.
Michael saw the blockbuster at a private screening, and he was captivated by the smouldering brown-eyed beauty.
"He says he fell in love with me the first time he saw me on screen," recounts Catherine. The first time I saw Catherine it was like, Wow," says Michael. "I knew this was something special," says Catherine.
in July 2015, just days after Michael's mother Diana lost her cancer battle at the age of 92.
It was a rare red carpet appearance for the couple and their two children, who appeared poised and grown-up as they walked the red carpet hand-in-hand with their parents.
