We’ve been rocking out to Sting’s music for ages but in a sweet interview, the singer revealed the one thing that rocks his world.
“Somebody said to me the other day: ‘Who is the most impressive person you have ever met?’ I said: ‘I think I’m married to her.’ She rocks me,” the 64-year-old said in an interview with People.
Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, will celebrate 24 years of marriage this year and have been together for many more.
“He’s always evolving, always surprising me,” Styler said. “I feel like we’re still on a beautiful adventure together.”
Though keeping things fresh seems to be a key ingredient to their lasting union, the couple, who married in 1992, do, however, have annual tradition they’ve kept up for nearly 20 years. They spend each anniversary at their Tuscan estate and plan to this year as well.
Though the couple’s commitment to their marriage appears rock-solid, they do admit that they have to work at it, especially when they are busy juggling their busy careers.
In a 2011 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, they revealed that weeks can go by when they aren’t able to see each other. But absence does help the heart grow fonder in their case.
“Being apart juices the relationship,” Sting said ― a sentiment also shared by Helen Mirren in her marriage.
Styler also talked about the work that goes into making their relationship work.
“To be in a relationship that is like a little lifetime, that’s a challenge,” she said. “It’s important to have frank discussions about what the other wants.”
