Black Love: Morris Chestnut Shares The Keys Of Success To His 20-Year Marriage

The 'Rosewood' actor says keeping away from a glitzy Hollywood lifestyle has secured his devotion to his lovely wife, Pam. 

A major key to success is love and as actor Morris Chestnut and his wife Pam Byse-Chestnut near their 20th anniversary this summer, we learn it's also about stability. The actor of the FOX series Rosewood shared important aspects of his long-lasting marriage with Huff Post Live last week.  

Chestnut opened up about his marriage and explained how it's possible for any couple to achieve longevity. It all comes down to communication and understanding.

"We've been fortunate and blessed enough to grow together," he said. "Everyone is different at 28 than they were at 22 and everyone is different at 35 than they were at 28. You can either grow apart or grow together and we've been fortunate to grow together."

With a career spanning the same length as his marriage, the actor says he's found a way to steer clear of the dragging short-lived Hollywood romances by leaving the limelight out his personal life. He's also aware of the differences between red flags and just bumps in an ever-changing relationship.

"I'm in Hollywood, but Hollywood is not my life," he explained. "I think a lot of the times what happens is people get so engrossed in the industry and the industry is their life and their friends. Everything is the industry. A lot of times people come in the industry and  they're either up one minute then they're down one minute. That type of instability on a number of levels is difficult for everyone. Every marriage is going to unstable at times because you have to go through everything with someone. I've dealt with instabilities (ups and downs) in my career but it's never been my life. It's just been an aspect of my life."

Got to adore a perspective like that. We're sure the couple can teach the youth a thing or two about love and happiness.

Jam Master Jay's son manned the turntables in the absence of his late father.

Prince is universally regarded as one of the most important musicians of all time, known for his genre-pushing creations and for advocating for the rights of all artists.
