The relationship between Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson can be said that it is a perfect relationship. They have managed to stay together for 50 years. They met in college and the sincerity they had with each other brought them to where they are today.
Jackson was a Morehouse College student and a strong proponent of on-campus politics. While attending black college he was very interested in the civil rights of people of color and even attended the funeral of Martin Luther King.
Around this time, Jackson met and fell in love with a student from another black campus, Spelman College. They shared the same views on civil rights. They came together in many revolutionary movements.
Richardson began working in cinema and television. She became part of series like Gray’s Anatomy and Blue Bloods. The couple shares many common values and interests. They have a solid foundation for their relationship. Unlike other couples in Hollywood who grow apart with time, Jackson and Richardson grew closer with time. Jackson proposed after a decade of dating, and they married in 1980 before expecting their only child, daughter Zoe Jackson, in 1982.
The wedding ceremony had only the closest people. They are always asked about the secret of their marriage’s longevity. Tanya says that there is no formula for the way you treat a man because they are from different cuts. The only thing you need in a relationship is to have God with you, a lot of patience, and love for your partner.
Also what has helped them a lot is that they share the same interests. They have always worked on the same things and know how to understand each other.
They have adopted forgiveness, love, hope, and patience in their marriage to stay grounded and connected. Their journey is an inspiration for many in love.
