Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas' successful marriage

The glamorous Hollywood couple is approaching their 20th wedding anniversary. Twenty years in this industry is huge! How do they do it? We bring you 4 facts that will surprise you! Scroll down to find out!

  • The couple has been known for their unusual marriage. 
  • They have a combined net worth of over $450 million. 
  • Their  25-year age difference doesn't seem to be  a problem.

1. The stars met through actor/producer Danny DeVito and according to Douglas he flopped the first date. Douglas told Jones when they met "You know, I'm going to be the father of your children". Jones responded bluntly "I've heard a lot about you and I've seen a lot about you and I think it's time that I said goodnight." The famous couple obviously got over that incident.

2. Their controversial prenup agreement. The actress allegedly demanded "£3 million per year in alimony if the marriage fails, or he dies." A supposed infidelity clause was also rumored to be on the prenup since in 1992 Douglas had been in rehab for drug addiction and it is believed he was there for his addiction to intercourse as well. 

3. The couple shares the same birthday only 25 years apart. What they do not share is the bathroom! That's right! Might this be the reason for their successful marriage? Who knows. During an interview in 2006 Zeta Jones said "Separate bathrooms is always a really great idea. Mine is so messy. I'd hate for my husband to realize just how incredibly cluttery I can be."

4. The couple lived in Bermuda from 2002 to 2009 in a beautifully renovated cottage. They eventually returned to the US for work reasons. 

Perhaps these are just some of the reasons why the couple has been together this long. Overcoming a brief separation in 2013 and their eldest son Dylan's sentence for drug trafficking has definitely made them stronger.
