Susan and Helmut Huber-Married for Nearly five Decades
In Hollywood, it's pretty rare to find couples who are together for a long time. Nowadays, a relationship has only become a source of the publicity to the stars.
During this scenario, Susan and Helmut Huber have set an amazing example. They didn't worry about commitments, like couples these days are afraid of.

The key to a successful relationship is to compromise and once you get past that stage you're fine. Till now Susan feels grateful that she got a family that loves her.
In an interview to the Huffingtonpost, she revealed various aspects of her marriage. She stated,
“I wake up, I’m happy,” she said. “I have my family intact and I do the work that I love to do, and those things make me thrive.”
Getting into Committed Relationship-Marriage
The lovebirds married on September 13th, 1969 in a content ceremony. The couple first met each other during an engagement ceremony at a hotel.
Helmut was the executive chef at that hotel and Susan's a waitress. Pretty unlikely match don't you think. Watch the video below and you'll know more about how they first met.
This was the second marriage for Helmut. But Susan feels grateful as his second wife because he got the experience of marriage first hand.
“I’m his second wife, so he had some practice before me, I don’t think that being married to a person who has a public career is for everybody. He was when I met him, and he remains, very self-possessed, very self-confident, and very funny.”
The couple welcomed two children into this world, a boy named Andreas Huber and girl named Liza Huber.
Diagnosed with Afib
