Sarah Jessica Parker: Keep Your Eyes On Your Relationship

Sarah Jessica Parker is a doting mom to three kids – James, 9, and two-year-old twins, Loretta and Tabitha – with husband Matthew Broderick. But the New Years Eve actress warns that parenting can often “distract” couples from taking care of each other.

“Kids can really distract you from your relationship,” she says. “Maybe in good ways and bad ways. It’s important to have all eyes on all parts of the relationship.”

“It’s something you really have to pay attention to. But you figure it out.”

She and Matthew have been together a long time – especially by Hollywood’s standards – but Sarah admits that they’ve had their ups and downs. “We’ve been together for 20 years and you have good days, you have decent days, and you have bad days. That’s a marriage,” she says.

“That’s a relationship. That’s a friendship, even – relationships outside the marriage run the same course. If you’re in it for the long haul and you want meaningful relationships you are going to go through lots of different periods.”

But Sarah says theirs is a marriage of equals. “He does lots in the house. He shops for me a lot and he cooks for all of us. There are a lot of things he does better than I do, so it balances itself out. I don’t feel taken advantage of. We take care of each other.”

        If all three ladies mentioned gained a few pounds…. their hands would look better and less veiny. Not enough fat on their arms/hands to cover up veins.

          I love how no attention is paid to what she said, just her “veiny arms”.

          What positive spin have you put on this article by mentioning her veins?

          If they gained a few pounds, you three hags would probably be the first to say they were getting fat.

            Why does a positive spin need to be put on this article? And why is it not ok for the first poster to say her arms are ugly but you can call people hags? Hypocrite.

            You know why it’s different? Because those “hags” as the other poster called them, have to belittle someone to make themselves feel better. Calling them out on being hags is not hypocritical, it’s just calling out the name-calling bullies for what they are.

            So it’s ok to name call if the person you’re name calling did it first? It’s like a celebrity blogging Dexter!

            Actually as one of the actual posters… I did not post to bash but to state fact… As woman age their hands can tend to look veiny (present company included) but I noticed when I gained a few pounds (I was under 100 lbs and 5’5 and gained 10 lbs) my hands looked less veiny…. only stating facts and not feel haggish at all. Actual fan of SJP

          She needs to phase out the sleeveless look.

        LOL, no. Not unless he’s officially come out of the closet! It was all over the gossip “news” a few years ago, though.

          So you’ve decided to spread more unsubstantiated rumors?

    Yes he did cheat – with a 25 year redhead who’s a youth counselor.

    • asnonymous

      You have evidence of that?

    I find it hard to believe that if Matthew cheated on her she would stay with him. She is a wealthy, confident woman, she would move on.
