Felicity Huffman and William H Macy
Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman and Shameless actor William H Macy have bucked the Hollywood divorce trend
and have now been married for 17 years, with two children.
Felicity has recently opened up about their decision to marry, saying, "Bill Macy asked me to marry him several times over several years. And I was finally smart enough to go: 'I'm going to marry this guy or really lose him for good,'"
"It was the work I had to do in order to bring myself to the marriage and then the work that I did to be able to trust another person and see what comes out of that comfort and that safety," she said. "I was able to blossom out of that."
The couple finally wed in 1997, and Huffman credits that love with helping her through a crippling depression.
