Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks are celebrating another year of marriage!

To mark their 36th wedding anniversary on April 30, both Wilson, 67, and Hanks, also 67, shared romantic photos and sweet messages about their relationship to Instagram.

Hanks captioned a photo of the sun-kissed couple with, “1988? April 30th? Big Doings. The Wilson & Hanks couple became Wife & Husband. 36 years! Nothing but Love since… Hanx.”

Wilson, meanwhile, shared a carousel of photos, showing the couple posing together in a variety of scenarios, including on a ski trip, at Egypt’s Great Sphinx of Giza and in a recording studio. In one photo Wilson posted, Hanks amusingly places his head on Wilson’s shoulder while the final picture shows the pair laughing together inside a car.

“36th anniversary! April 30, 1988,” Wilson captioned the post, before quoting “Rabbi Ben Ezra” by 19th century English poet Robert Browning: “Grow old along with me; the best is yet to be.”

Some of the couple’s famous friends left comments on Wilson’s post, celebrating their lasting relationship and marriage.

“This is true love ❤️ Happy Anniversary you guys!” Cary Elwes shared in a comment. “Happy anniversary you two love birds!❤️❤️” Michelle Pfeiffer wrote. “Happy anniversary to you both God bless you,” Rosanna Arquette added in another comment.

Hanks and Wilson first met in 1981 on the set of the ABC sitcom Bosom Buddies. At the time they met, Hanks was married to his first wife, Samantha Lewes. Hanks and Lewes — who had two kids, Colin Hanks, 46, and Elizabeth, 41, together — officially divorced in 1987.
