That’s the secret of a good marriage, according to a couple who are still getting it on every day, after more than 30 years together. Well, who are we to disagree?
Rob and Nancy have been together since the mid-’80s. They have weathered illness, raising a family, poverty, abundance, career changes, family drama, drug and alcohol abuse, growing pains, and fads in human sexuality. What’s the secret to their longevity as a couple? To find out, I sat down with them at their home base in Beverly Hills, California.
When Rob met Nancy, he was an art director by day, and a drug dealer by night. “We met a few times before we got together,” he recalls. “She didn’t want nothin’ to do with me. She called me a ‘junkie’ (laughs).”
Not only was Rob a self-described “degenerate”, drug dealer and “junkie”, he was hanging out with prostitutes and mobsters. “Bad things were starting to happen. I was making terrible decisions. At one point I thought about becoming a ‘hitman’ for hire. I was outta control. I had to stop ‘cause I didn’t want to end up in jail.”
