Though how the couple met for the first time is still a bis mystery, they didn't take much time to tie the knot. According to reports, the duo tied the knot, in 2003, after going on dates for a mere three months.

Well, they say decisions taken in haste tend to fall apart rather quickly but contrary to the popular belief, it is yet to fall apart for the pair as they are going strong for around 15-years. 

Talking about why they took the decision of tying the knot so soon, she said in an interview, 

"But I just felt like, wow, this guy is really honest. So even though we dated for a short time before he proposed, I just knew it was right because I felt like I wanted to see him every day."

Although she was never aware of him as she grew up in Toronto, Canada so she had no idea regarding his background. Their marriage life is like a fairy tale as still, they love each other like they are new girlfriend and boyfriend. 

Last year on August 30, 2017, Donnie shared a picture with his wife marking their 14th wedding anniversary.

The couple is a proud parent of two children, a boy, James, 10, and, a girl, Jasmine, 14. His wife also paid tribute to him during the Father's Day as she considers him the best father for her children. 

Now many of you might be wondering what's the secret behind their strong bond. According to Donnie, you gotta give control to your wife. He said in an interview, 

 "It's all about 'happy wife, happy life. I think it's important that men be more tolerant, so I listen to my wife. Besides, she always makes the better and more thoughtful decisions for our family, so I trust her completely."

There you go guys, next time before you make a big decision, try to ask your partner first and maybe your relationship will be as blissful as theirs.
