Media mogul, Donny Osmond, gave fans insight on how marriage works as he sights examples from his long-time marriage to his wife, Debbie.


Donny Osmond was recently active on his Instagram story, where he revealed a priceless secret of his lasting marriage with Debbie Osmond. During a Q&A session, a fan asked, "What's your secret to a long-lasting marriage?"

The TV personality shared his opinion, and according to him, people approached marriage, wondering what their spouses could do to make them happy or what they can gain from marriage.

Donny went on as he told the fan that people in matrimony should endeavor to work on making their partners happy instead. He said:

"I believe the key to a successful marriage is focusing instead on what you can do to bring your spouse happiness."

Donny and Debbie's marriage has spanned for an impressive period of 41 years, and they have weathered different challenges together.



The "Donny & Marie" co-host once revealed how he met his partner on Facebook. Osmond made it known that he first met her in high school, and at the time, Debbie was dating his older brother.

He added an interesting fact as he told fans it took him three years to win his lover's heart. It could be seen that Osmond was smitten by his long-time spouse.




It is safe to say that Donny's marriage is an exception from what usually obtains in Hollywood marriages. Together with his wife, the entertainer has five grown-up children who have become parents themselves.

On social media, Osmond continues to be in awe of his gorgeous partner as he constantly writes beautifully about her. Although they keep it together, the couple definitely experienced their share of troubled times in marriage.



Osmond and Debbie tied the knot in 1978. At the time, Donnie was 20, and his career was just budding while Debbie was 19 years old.

Donny and Debbie became parents in the second year of their marriage after giving birth to a boy, Donald Clark Osmond Jr., now 39 years old. Donald and his siblings are doing well for themselves in their chosen fields.

Presently, Osmond and his spouse have ten grandkids. Last year, the pair celebrated their 41st anniversary of marital bliss.
