After 24 years of marriage, Barbara Streisand and James Brolin are still dating and holding hands

Marriage requires effort, just like any other type of relationship.

This is a universal fact that applies to everyone equally.

It takes effort from both partners to make a marriage successful, regardless of whether one or both of them is famous.

James Brolin and Barbra Streisand have been together for over twenty years now, and they are still very much in love with each other.

The first day of July in 1996 marked the beginning of their love journey.

Streisand and Brolin first got together at a party that their mutual acquaintances had arranged for them to attend.

Streisand acknowledged that she was worried about the interaction and that she immediately moved to where the children were playing, only returning to the dining table when necessary.

She added that she anticipated seeing Brolin in full beard since that was his usual appearance.

Brolin made an unexpected appearance, clean-shaven and with his hair neatly cropped short.

She recalls making a joke about his hair by asking, “Who messed up your hair?”

Brolin said that it was the moment that made him fall for her, despite the fact that it can be a humiliating time for some people.

The two got along rather well with one another.

Streisand remembered dozing off on the lavatory floor with the phone pressed to her ear when Brolin was filming My Brother’s War in Ireland.

They first appeared on the red carpet together at the premiere of The Mirror Has Two Faces, which is where they made the public announcement of their love.

The couple tied the wedding exactly two years to the day after they had their first encounter with one another.

They did face some difficulties, but overall, they enjoyed a lot more successes as a unit than they did setbacks.

During Brolin’s induction ceremony onto the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Streisand was there to support him.

In the meantime, Brolin was there to support Streisand as she accepted the National Medal of the Arts award.

In 2006, the pair revealed that they were starting a new family when they took a photo together during her tour.

Both Brolin and Streisand were married to other people at the time, and each had their own family to tend to.

The actors Brolin and Streisand revealed the keys to their long-lasting and happy marriage.

Brolin disclosed that they each maintain their own individual bank account.

He remarked that as someone who was married for the third time, he knew a lot of the things that could strain a marriage because he had experienced all of them.

Because he did not want such unfortunate events to occur once more, he took preventative measures.

Additionally, he testified to the significance of attending couple’s therapy sessions.

He explained that none of us are immune to emotional outbursts that come on suddenly, and that these outbursts can readily manifest themselves as fights.

Brolin believes that maintaining one’s composure and having a “referee” in the middle of the conflict is the key to successfully reaching a resolution.

In addition to this, both of their children have received a great deal of attention from both of them.

It was revealed that Josh Brolin, James Brolin’s son and the actor who portrays Thanos in the Marvel franchise, loved how Streisand transformed into a typical grandmother after the birth of his youngest child.

Additionally, Brolin and Streisand acknowledged that despite the pandemic’s tendency to cause friction among individuals, it actually helped them get along better.

The key, the couple believes, is to listen to one another.

According to PEOPLE, she said, “The secret is to listen carefully.”

“I think to be a good actor, you have to listen. To be a good person, you have to listen. To be a good marriage partner, you have to listen. Hear the other person. Agree to disagree.”

Sharing with PEOPLE, Brolin said: “I think everybody needs to be a negotiator.”

“Everybody needs patience and know when to take a walk.”
