Jamie Lee Curtis Reveals Her Secret to a Successful 31-Year-Marriage Is Summed Up in 3 Words

VIA| It goes without saying that Hollywood has been plagued with failed marriages over the years, so when actress Jamie Lee Curtis says she’s been married to her first husband for the last 31 years, it’s almost shocking.


While promoting her new television series, “Scream Queens,” the “Today Show” asked Curtis to what she credits her successful marriage. Her answer is pretty simple:

“Don’t get divorced,” she says with a smile. “Hold on.”

And while more may go into her and actor/director Christopher Guest’s three-decades-long marriage, Curtis believes that the decision to have a successful marriage comes down to two words.

“It’s a fascinating thing. I could write a book on marriage called ‘Don’t Leave.’”

As the “Today” hosts concurred, writing up a quick guide on the secrets to a successful marriage may not be a bad idea.
