The Enquirer had a rare sweet article about the couple’s relationship and how they're keeping it going after all this time. I’m sure this is embellished, but that's just my skepticism.

Tom and Jillie’s relationship sounds so romantic that I had to share it with you.

The still-handsome 77-year-old actor and his second wife, British-born beauty Jilly Mack, 64, have been enjoying marital bliss since 1987 – because they made a pact to never fight.

We decided long ago that fighting was a waste of time,” a pal quotes Tom as saying. “So we said that if we had a difference of opinion about something, we would sit down over a cup of tea or a meal and talk it through.

“Jillie has a great sense of humor, so our talks often end with both of us laughing, and as they always say, laughter is the best medicine.”

The lovebirds live with their 25-year-old daughter, Hannah – a professional horse show jumper – on a 65 acre avocado ranch in Ventura County, California. And Jillie appreciates what a catch she has in her husband – he’s both handsome and a hopeless romantic.

“Tom dotes on Jillie,” said a source. “He gets up early every morning, makes her a cup of tea and takes it to her before she gets out of bed.”

He also leaves little love poems he’s written around the house for her to find while he’s in New York every other week filming “Blue Bloods” adds the source.

“And he’s constantly texting her sexy messages. He’s also on a first name basis with the local florist because he’s always sending her flowers.”

The article goes on to say that they have their own interests so when they do get together “the sparks fly.” Damn.

Can you believe Tom Selleck is 77 freaking years old?! He’s my dad’s age and so help me I still would. I would say his wife is a lucky bi**h, but she probably puts up with a lot of his cr*p too. I’m not buying that everything is roses in their relationship, but it sounds like they’ve worked out a nice way to communicate and to show appreciation and love for each other daily.

This was probably the sweetest story I read all week about Tom selleck marriage.
