Secrets of family happiness from star couples

Surely, every person entering into marriage hopes that his family will be strong and happy, and that the couple will live together for many years. But these hopes are not always justified. Today we want to talk about the secrets of strong marriages of domestic celebrities. They created families back in Soviet times, went through victories and defeats together, reached the heights of fame, raised children and continue to support each other in everything in grief and joy.

Even at a time when they were not familiar, Anatoly Mukasey with his mother and sister Ella saw the film “Behind the window of a department store”, in which Svetlana Druzhinina was shot. Mom drew attention to the actress, and Anatoly immediately declared: he would certainly marry her. True, they met a little later on the volleyball court. First, she noticed huge imported sneakers, and only then the young man himself.

Svetlana and Anatoly were both captains of the VGIK women’s and men’s volleyball teams, often intersected in competitions and soon made friends. They created their family in 1958 and have not been separated for more than 60 years. At first, the couple often quarreled, and Anatoly’s parents helped them put up. But now Svetlana Sergeevna and Anatoly Mikhailovich themselves know how to save their family.

Svetlana Druzhinina often shares the secrets of a happy marriage on her pages on social networks. She believes that to survive all the hardships they helped patience, mutual understanding, friendship and the ability to forgive. For Svetlana Mikhailovna and Anatoly Mikhailovich, all this is the components of love and happiness. And they learned how to create their family traditions from the parents of Anatoly Mikhailovich, which they now carefully store and pass on to their grandchildren.

They met at the Moscow Art Theater School. Myagkov was the oldest on the course, and Voznesenskaya was the youngest. The future actor immediately recognized in this fragile, defenseless and incredibly beautiful girl his only love. True, Nastya was far less confident in her feelings than her admirer. But nevertheless he managed to do everything in order not to leave his competitors, who were courting Voznesenskaya, not a single chance. In 1963 they became husband and wife.

For more than 55 years, they have been together, but were able to amazingly preserve not only their family, but also youthful ardor of feelings and infinite tenderness in relationships. They do not allow anyone into their family, refuse to talk about their personal lives, but the secret of their family is quite simple and understandable: love, mutual respect and support of each other. Whatever Andrei Myagkov does: whether he painted, composed detective stories, Anastasia Voznesenskaya was always on her husband’s side. They are sincerely interested in each other’s affairs, solve all issues together and always touch hands.

They married in the second year of VGIK and have lived together for more than 50 years. Their happiness was not simple and cloudless. They even parted and for several years lived apart. But the separation contributed to the fact that Vera Alentova and Vladimir Menshov learned to value their family.

Spouses believe that their marriage is based on luck and the ability to work on relationships. If love is really a gift from heaven, then this gift needs to be strengthened and supported by actions. The family must have traditions and family holidays. The tradition of giving each other gifts for the New Year was brought by Vera Alentova. Both have complex characters, the famous director and his wife all their life learn to find compromises and forgive.

He saw Inna Churikova in a television play and realized that he needed this actress for the film “There is no ford in the fire.” At first, Gleb Panfilov seemed to the actress too serious.
