For all the stories of celebrities cheating, lying about it, and eventually breaking up (I’m looking at you, Goop and the Pinkett-Smiths) there are the rare success stories. We have couples like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson (25 years), Bryan Cranston and Robin Deardon (24 years), and famously unmarried Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell (30 years, can you believe it?). You can add Tom Selleck and his wife of 26 years, British born Jillie Mack, to that list. The Enquirer had a rare feel good piece about the couple’s relationship and how they keep it hot after all this time. I’m sure this is embellished, but that’s just the cynic in me. Tom and Jillie’s relationship sounds so romantic that I had to share it with you.
The still-handsome 69-year-old actor and his second wife, British-born beauty Jilly Mack, 56, have been enjoying marital bliss since 1987 – because they made a pact to never fight.
“We decided long ago that fighting was a waste of time,” a pal quotes Tom as saying. “So we said that if we had a difference of opinion about something, we would sit down over a cup of tea or a meal and talk it through.
“Jillie has a great sense of humor, so our talks often end with both of us laughing, and as they always say, laughter is the best medicine.”
The lovebirds live with their 25-year-old daughter, Hannah – a professional horse show jumper – on a 65 acre avocado ranch in Ventura County, California. And Jillie appreciates what a catch she has in her husband – he’s both handsome and a hopeless romantic.
“Tom dotes on Jillie,” said a source. “He gets up early every morning, makes her a cup of tea and takes it to her before she gets out of bed.”
He also leaves little love poems he’s written around the house for her to find while he’s in New York every other week filming “Blue Bloods” adds the source.
“And he’s constantly texting her sexy messages. He’s also on a first name basis with the local florist because he’s always sending her flowers.”

The article goes on to say that they have their own interests so when they do get together “the sparks fly.” Damn.
Can you believe Tom Selleck is 69 freaking years old?! He’s my dad’s age and so help me I still would. I would say his wife is a lucky bitch, but she probably puts up with a lot of his crap too. I’m not buying that everything is roses in their relationship, but it sounds like they’ve worked out a nice way to communicate and to show appreciation and love for each other daily. This was probably the sweetest story I read all week.
