Though laughter is abundant, Mariska was sure to stress that their marriage isn’t without conflict. “It’s not that we don’t fight,” she said before explaining that finding the humor in their arguments has always helped them make up faster.

“It’s the way we find our way back to each other,” Peter said. “It’s this fantastically, wonderfully ridiculous way that we can swing back and forth any number of times in any given day. But fundamentally we know we have the same destination.”
