Kelly Ripa Says Marriage Is A Marathon After Being Married 24 Years


Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos have been married for almost 24 years. Their anniversary is in May and Kelly often talks about her marriage. Of course, being married for over two decades, along with having three children, must come with some issues. However, Kelly urges couples to work through problems.

She said on Live with Kelly and Ryan, “You’re going to fight, you’re going to have disagreements. Relationships, marriages are not sprints, it’s a marathon. There’s going to be like, mile 24 when you’re like, ‘I quit.’ But you just got to push through. Just push through. There’s really nothing that’s that insurmountable, besides abuse or things of that nature.”
