On June 25th, Denzel and Pauletta Washington celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. In August’s issue of Ebony, the Washington’s talk intimately about their marriage and how to sustain one under the watchful eye of the media and in the Hollywood limelight. During the interview, Paula revealed that Denzel courted her for 6 years! Slow and steady won the race.
The actress/producer, Pauletta, spoke about how they’ve made the relationship work for 30 years:
“I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part. He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That’s gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.”
The August 2013 “Black Wealth Issue” is on stands now.
