David Beckham is revealing how he and his wife Victoria keep their 17-year marriage strong.
The soccer star and the former Spice Girl turned designer, who married at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland, started their relationship with Victoria as the bigger star. In order to hide her romance from the public, her manager Simon Fuller told them to hang out on the down low, so the two would hook up in David’s bright blue BMW in the parking lot of a local pub.
“We used to kiss, of course, and just spend time together,” David tells "Desert Island Discs" for the special 75th anniversary edition of Radio 4’s show.
The fashionable star also laughed at his choice of wedding attire, saying “I even had a top hat in purple. What was I thinking?”
As for how it’s lasted this long, he adds, “because we are a strong family unit. We have got strong parents too and they taught us the right values. Of course you make mistakes and we all know that marriage is difficult at times. It is about working through it. We have come up against tough times. But we know each other better than anyone else knows us. And we talk. Do we stay together because it is a brand? Of course not. We stay together because we love each other and because we have four amazing children.”
