In 1998, the couple met when they were both students at the prestigious Stanford University. According to Ryan, it was clear from the moment they got married in 2007 that they both wanted the same thing in a relationship. 

"Sterling told me he wanted a relationship that others could 'see God in' and that 'inspired people to love each other and want to be married.'"

In their eleven years of marriage, they've had two children named Andrew, 7, and Amare, 3. Because they are both Hollywood actors, they've had the privilege of going to work together and enjoying perks such as attending red carpet events and galas as each other's dates

However, it's not always glitz and glamour when it comes to marriage, and the Browns acknowledge that.
