When it comes to romance and inspirational movies, Morris Chestnut is a familiar face and name. He first came into the spotlight after he featured in the 1991 film "Boyz N the Hood." And he has gone on to appear in many more movies, oftentimes, opposite a leading lady.

But despite the many beautiful women he has to spend time with on set, Morris has managed to remain tied to one woman. That woman would be Pamela Byse – his leading lady of 24 years. Together, they have two children - Grant Chestnut and Paige Chestnut.

Their long-lasting union has brought on a lot of curious questions for their fans and the media outlets. One of those many questions is: "how have they made it last so long?" Maybe this statement from the "When The Bough Breaks" star will shed some

light

:

"I have been with my wife for a number of years now, and the number one thing that keeps us strong is mutual respect; that is first and foremost."

The couple met back in the 90's while in a club and the "The Best Man Holiday" actor wasted no time in making his intentions known.

The duo got married before the end of 1995. Morris and Pam welcomed their first child, Grant, two years later. And the following year, 1998, they had their daughter, Paige.

The world was introduced to Grant when he made an appearance on the red carpet alongside his father. And he sure made an impression on fans and critics alike.

Despite his father's fame, the 22-year-old has managed to keep his private life away from the media. Celebrity Mirror reports that Grant is a secretive young man who occasionally gives a glimpse into his life via his Instagram account.

His parents, however, have no qualms

showing off their love

on the red carpet and other events.

A GLIMPSE INTO THE LIFE OF THE CHESTNUTS

Born in December 1973, Pamela Byse-Chestnut and according to

reports

, Morris Chestnut knew he wanted to make her his wife when they met. But it was seeing how well Pamela treated family members that made him certain. He soon made good on his word and married her.

And after 24 years together, Morris never reduces the role his wife plays in making his life a better one. But marriage isn't the only thing the 50-year-old excels at.

Over the years, the graduate of California State University has collected a reported net worth of more than $10 million.
