It seems as though there is a heartbreaking story that emerges out of Hollywood every other day regarding celebrity marriages. Several couples who have been together for years have been announcing their decisions to separate in recent months, and the stories are, unfortunately, becoming all too familiar.
While the hope for sustainable relationships in Hollywood has been diminishing, there are some couples who have fought through barriers, including thoughts of divorce, and now remain strong. One such couple is beloved actor Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian.
The couple just revealed that they are celebrating almost two decades of marriage! They celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on Wednesday.
Patrick and Jillian posted a photo from the exact same spot that they said “I do” at in 1999. They went back to the same spot to pose for a photo 19 years later.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star wrote, “This spot 19 years ago, today!”
Jillian posted a photo of a bouquet and wrote, “Gorgeous arrangement! Happy 19th Anniversary @patrickdempsey.”
Just three years ago, the couple was reportedly going through a difficult time and was unsure whether they would make it through the storm. Thankfully, they were able to fight for their marriage and remain strong.
Dempsey had said at the time “Our marriage was not something I was prepared to let go of. I didn’t feel like we had done all the work. And we both wanted to do that work.”
Congrats to the happy couple on their 19th wedding anniversary! These pictures are so sweet! Share your congrats here. In other recent news, Pope Francis just implemented a major change to the Catholic Church.
