A big part of making a marriage and/or relationship work is compromise. Along with commitment, trust, love, support and more.
For the average couple, this might involve going to your partner's boring work event when you'd rather watch Gossip Girl at home, or reaching an agreement that one takes out the bins while the other unloads the dishwasher. But, for the celebrity couple, these compromises turn up a notch, judging from a recent admission by Ashton Kutcher.
The Two And A Half Men actor explained how he had purchased a ticket - which reportedly costs $225,000 (£162,000) - to space, via Virgin Galactic the space arm of Sir Richard Branson's airline.
However, following a conversation with wife Mila Kunis, Kutcher decided to hold back on becoming one of the first humans to visit space, commercially.
'When I got married and had kids, my wife basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children, so I ended up selling my ticket back to Virgin Galactic,' Kutcher told Cheddar News.
'I was supposed to be on the next flight but I will not be on the next flight.'
However, as we mentioned, compromise in relationships works both ways, so it seems that while Kunis advised Kutcher against going on 'the next flight to space', she might have held back from asking her husband to forgo space travel forever.
'But at some point, I'm going to space,' Kutcher confirmed.
One person who did manage to go to space this week was Virgin Galactic founder Branson, who on July 11 joined one of his own Virgin Galactic flights as a passenger and recorded a message to young people while he looked down on planet earth:
'I was once a child with a dream looking up to the stars, now I'm an adult in a spaceship... looking down on our beautiful earth. For the next generation of dreamers, if we can do this, just imagine what you can do.'
