How many people do you know who, after a few years married, are happy, say five or 10? Now, how many do you know who have been happily married for 40 years?

The kind of relationships that go on for decades may seem to be few and far between and they are. Many couples break up very quickly, but sometimes you see one that lasts for a long time. That’s true of Gary Sinise and his wife, Moira Harris.

Sinise is famous on the silver screen, for his unforgettable roles, like Lt. Dan Taylor in Forest Gump. He’s also known for supporting veterans with his work. He was married in 1981, and his wife was also an actress. Together they have three children.

He admitted there’s a key to their marriage’s longevity. It’s also something that is important to include in our personal lives, even if we are not married.

“A sense of humor,” he said. “My wife’s a loving, funny, Irish-spirited person, and I’m still surprised at some of the things she says. She makes me laugh every day.”

They do more than just put laughter into each others’ lives. They love each other, whether times are good or bad.

Harris is involved in her husband’s foundation to help veterans, first responders, and their families. Sinise also stood by his wife when she struggled with alcoholism and strengthened her. In his recent book, he spoke about this, “Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service.”

“I was not going to include it in the book unless she was supportive of that,” he said.

It was a chapter that was difficult to include, but she ended up respecting his decision to share the story. She felt it would enable her marriage to be stronger and better prepared for future challenges.
