Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson met each other during the filming of Volunteers in 1985 where they portrayed a couple in love. The actors had a romantic relationship but Hanks already had a wife and 2 children and Wilson had a fiancé. Only 3 years later after having a secret relationship, Hanks divorced his wife and proposed to Wilson.
Today, Hanks says that he rushed the first marriage because he was young, impulsive, and worked all the time. Hanks thinks that a true marriage has to be a conscious decision rather than an impulsive one. “Don’t get married before you’re 30 years old,” says the actor.
