The Secret Behind Amanda Seyfried and Her Husband’s Unconventional but Solid Relationship
When we think of a real-life Hollywood couple, we imagine a world of glitz and glamour. But Amanda Seyfried, 36, and husband Thomas Sadoski, 45, are the picture of laid-back lovebirds. This inspiring duo has made the decision to be totally open with each other and do everything on their own terms and at their chosen pace. And the result is a thriving romance that we can’t help but admire.
Bright Side believes that each love story is unique and every couple needs to carve their own path without being influenced by others. And Amanda and Thomas seem to have been able to find the secret to their own happiness from the get-go.
A love story written in the stars.
Amanda and Thomas first met in May 2015, while working on an off-Broadway play. At the time, neither of them was single, even though they were ’’both in bad relationships’’ as admitted by the actress. Thomas was always there for her, helping her through her panic attacks, but ’’never flirted, never disrespected his wife’’ which made Amanda admire him all the more. Mutual respect and a bond of friendship was born between the 2 costars, even though their relationship stayed strictly platonic.
But it seems that destiny had other plans for these 2 actors. Later that same year, Amanda’s 2-year relationship with her boyfriend had ended. Then one month later, Thomas separated from his wife of 8 years. Soon afterward, there was a new film project that reunited the 2 actors, but this time around "things began to heat up’’ and it was confirmed in March 2016 that the duo was actually dating.
Letting things flow organically.
From the start of their story, it seems that this couple refused to follow relationship traditions, in general, or any of Hollywood’s over-the-top rules. They kept their relationship under the radar and out of the media spotlight. In fact, the twosome got engaged in less than a year of being together, and by the end of 2016, Amanda’s baby bump was already showing. And when it came to the engagement ring, the minimal, plain gold band was a far cry from the imposing rings that celebrities love to show off.
The wedding in March 2017, was no different from the couple’s understated and casual style. The pair eloped and opted for a secret ceremony where it was ’’just the 2 of us’’ as revealed by the Mean Girls actress. Later on, the couple decided to have an intimate brunch at a neighborhood café. It seems that their special day was planned spontaneously and this is what made it all the more beautiful, as Amanda said: “And afterward, I was like, ’Can we just go to Cheebo?’ It was awesome.”
Rising above life’s challenges together.
Their story might seem picture-perfect, but just like any couple, these 2 also have to overcome life’s hurdles to strengthen their bond. One of these challenges appeared when actor Dominic Cooper was cast opposite Amanda in the movie Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The pair had previously dated, and naturally, Thomas had some reservations about his wife reuniting with her ex on-screen.
But rather than allowing this situation to create a bigger issue in their relationship, they were able to talk it out and even use it to strengthen their marriage. Amanda opened up later on saying that she found her husband’s reaction sweet, explaining, ’’I’d rather he be jealous than completely fine with it. He’s been great. He’s very supportive and he loves this movie.’’
Family comes first... always.
Just a scroll through their social media pages proves once again that this couple has a simple and relaxed approach to life and an honest relationship. Even though we don’t doubt that both actors have busy work schedules, they put their daughter Nina, 4, and their son Thomas, 1, above anything else in their life. The doting father opened up saying that he was more excited about becoming a dad “than I’ve ever been about anything in my life.”
The adorable family has been spending most of their time on a farm. When asked about her daily routine during an interview, Seyfried revealed that she had been spending all of her time with her husband, kids, and animals. And it seems that the starlet adores sharing cozy quality time with her other half, saying that after all this time spent together, ’’I definitely think my marriage is even stronger."
Do you think that every couple should have their own set of rules to follow? What is your secret to a strong relationship?
