London, Dec 13 (IANS) Oscar-award winning actor Jeff Bridges says marriages get better with time.
The 61-year-old has revealed he thought his union with Susan Geston, whom he married in 1977, would grow less passionate as they got older but was pleasantly surprised to find their difficulties have only made them stronger, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"What I didn't count on with this whole marriage thing was that the passion, the sparks - it gets better! I was thinking it was going to go the other way, but it gets cooler and hotter all at the same time," he said.
"I think one of the things about staying married is just not getting a divorce. To go through some of those difficult times and stay together, you've got to expand your concept of love. If you've been married a long time, you're going to get tested," he added.
