"We said, we do, again, 10 years later," said Emma Heming. Even after a decade of being married, they are still inseparable.
Cupid hadn't always been kind to Bruce Willis. But once he found the right person, love gave him the most fulfilling relationship he's ever had. He's experienced the happiest years of his life alongside his wife, Emma Heming.
After spending over a decade married to each other, they still can't imagine being apart. "I hear so many people in relationships say, ‘I just need a couple of days away, or even an hour away,’" Bruce Willis told W magazine, reported by Access. "But I don’t want to be away from Emma at all. It’s the most singular relationship I’ve ever had in my life."
Ever since their marriage in 2009, they've been inseparable and for their 10th anniversary, they decided that the best way to honor their vows was to renew them. In the company of their closest family and friends, they married each other once again. "We said, we do, again, 10 years later," Emma Heming wrote on Instagram.
Among the guests who attended their wedding was Bruce Willis' ex-wife, Demi Moore, who's the mother of the three daughters from his first marriage, and both Bruce Willis and Emma Heming wouldn't have done it without her there.
“She welcomed me into her family like I welcomed her into ours,” Emma Heming told US Weekly. “Again, I have so much respect for her. I have so much respect for how Bruce and Demi worked through their divorce to be able to put their children first. I learned so much from that and grew so much from watching that. It was important for her to be there. She was at our first wedding. I loved having her there again. I wouldn’t do it without her.”
“We’ve become like a tribe,” Bruce Willis said about the relationship that his children from both marriages have and how his family has grown together.
What still makes their marriage work is that they never fail to take time out for each other. “We have a great foundation. He makes me laugh. You’ve got to keep laughing because if you stop, you’re going to have some issues," said Emma Heming, as reported by Fox News. "... We still have a date night once a week! We always try and make time for each other. My husband is super supportive — we are a good match for each other."
Apart from giving him a remarkable marriage, Emma Heming was also the woman who pulled Bruce Willis out of the dark place that he was in after the divorce. "I went from ‘F*** love’ to ‘Love is truly the answer.’ I spent the last 10 years single and, for the most part, unhappy. In a dark place," Bruce Willis said. "I never thought that being with someone else was the answer."
He would try to convince himself that he wasn't lonely, but being around Emma Heming showed him the emptiness in his life and she pulled him out of his dark place. "I would say, ‘I’m alone, but I’m not lonely.’ But I was just kidding myself," he said. "Then I started hanging around Emma, and on a day-to-day basis my life became much happier.”
From the misery that he felt, Emma Heming brought something truly special into his life. "I am the happiest I've ever been and this comes after a long period of being kind of lonely," he said, according to Hello! "With Emma, I knew I had found a woman who didn't need or want anything from me other than for us to be together and be happy. I never want to spend one moment away from her." And hopefully, they never have to ever again.
They would be extremely grateful for taking a chance with each other over a decade ago. Emma Heming wrote, "Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them, how proud you are of them or how grateful you are to have them in your life."
