What Does Ant Man Know About Marriage?

If you’ve seen Paul Rudd, the star of the upcoming Ant Man movie, on-screen (and chances are, you have), he comes off as a charming, down-to-earth, and occasionally awkward guy that’s hard not to like! That handsome “guy next door” quality is part of what makes him the perfect choice for the superhero role of Ant Man, but he’s pretty “super” off the silver screen too!

According to pretty much all of Hollywood (at least the people that know Rudd), the good guy we see in movies carries over into real life too! His home life is remarkably wholesome, compared to plenty of other celebrities, with a happy marriage of 12+ years with Julie Yaeger (a former publicist), two young children, a strong sense of his Midwestern values, and aside from the movies, a pretty low-key lifestyle.

Take a note from Ant-Man on marriage.

Rudd, who was raised in Kansas, told Elle Magazine that he spends most of his free time playing Words With Friends and watching sports – hardly a wild and crazy Hollywood partier. According to friends and family alike, Paul’s known among their group for his charm, his trivia knowledge, his caring personality, and above all, his consistency – which, of course, Paul shrugs off.

Even though his roles can range from wacky to superhero, in everyday life he’s a consummate family man. He and Julie have been together for nearly two decades, and they’ve done an excellent job of keeping most of their private life well out of the media, splitting their time between two New York homes and raising a son and a daughter away from the public eye.

While the couple isn’t particularly candid about what keeps their relationship strong, the clues are abundant. Between Paul’s low-key, dependable persona and Julie’s all out avoidance of celebrity, we can see that this couple truly puts their family and their relationship first, and isn’t tempted by the glitz and gossip of the tabloids.

If there’s one big lesson we can learn from the success of their marriage, it’s that stability works wonders. Nearly every interview, every account of working with Paul, and even the vibe we get from watching him on screen indicates his calm kindness.

When he and Julie argue (as all couples do), it’s not too hard to imagine a heated discussion resolved with laughter and a warm embrace. It’s not hard to imagine the love and kindness in their marriage just washing over disagreements and bringing things back to the happy center.

To be a super husband, focus on gentleness, calmness, caring – these are wonderful qualities to have in a spouse. They don’t make you weak… They only make your marriage stronger.

The last 2 years i've felt my husband and I growing apart. He doesn't open up to me about anything, he doesn't share his day. The only things he wants to discuss are my work, the house and the kids. Most of the time he acts like a kid. I don't know what to do
