Black Couple’s Love: The Love Story of Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson Jackson

By Duchess Magazine

A Love for the Ages

Samuel L. Jackson, who is 75 years old, and his wife, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, who is 74 years old, have a love story that seems to have stood the test of time. They have been married since 1980, but their love story began even earlier when they met in college. LaTanya attended Spelman College, while Samuel was a student at Morehouse College. They have been together for 50 years, and throughout their four decades of marriage, they have seen each other grow and change, yet their love remains strong.

The Secret to a Long-Lasting Marriage

In 2022, the couple revealed the secret to their long-lasting marriage in an interview with PEOPLE magazine. According to them, the key is having a shared vision of commitment. They believe that it is revolutionary for Black people to stay together and raise their children with both a father and a mother. They wanted to challenge the false narrative that African American families are only made up of single mothers raising children. To change this narrative, they made a decision to stay together no matter what and figure things out as a team. Their love is built on respect, love, and looking out for each other.

During their time together, Samuel L. Jackson struggled with drug addiction. However, LaTanya was there to support him and help him get clean. He has been in recovery for over 30 years now and continues to have a successful career in Hollywood. Samuel credits LaTanya for giving him the chance to become the man he was meant to be.

Another secret to their successful marriage is working on projects together. Recently, they were producing partners on the Apple TV+ limited series called The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, in which Samuel also starred. By collaborating on projects, they are able to share their passions and support each other’s careers.

Even after 43 years of marriage, Samuel and LaTanya still have a playful and loving relationship. They celebrated their anniversary by dancing together on a yacht, and Samuel posted a video of their dance on social media. In the caption, he expressed his love for LaTanya and his belief that they can make many more years together.

Samuel and LaTanya have one child together, a daughter named Zoe. Zoe has followed in her parents’ footsteps and has become an Emmy-winning reality TV producer. She has worked on popular shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race and Top Chef.
