Sean Connery Has Been Married For 4 Decades

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where long-lasting marriages aren’t what they used to be, especially when it comes to Hollywood.  But actor Sean Connery has proved all stereotypes wrong with his marriage that has lasted 40 years (and counting). His love with his wife Micheline Roquebrune Connery shows that true love still does exist. And despite the fact that their story isn’t the typical Hollywood movie script, they are still best known to the world as Mr. and Mrs. Bond. 


Sean met his wife Micheline in Morocco back in 1970 at a golf tournament dinner, where they felt an instant, undeniable connection with each other.  When they had met, they were both recently divorced, and Sean was actually still in the process of finalizing his. Micheline is reported to have dreamt about his the night they met, and upon waking up, she felt like she had finally found peace in her life, confirming to her that Sean wasn’t just another man. 



The next morning, Micheline returned to the tournament to seek out Sean. But from there, it wasn’t all your typical fairy-tale story. Since they were both living far apart (Micheline was living in North Africa with her kids)  it was a challenge to see each other on a regular basis. The lovebirds also had a language barrier – but also proved that love truly does always conquer all, and their will was strong enough to found a way.


Sean and Micheline have been happily married for more than 4 decades already, and are still very much on the same page, still sharing a passion for golf, which today is also still a big part of their lives. The Connery’s are well known for their adorable dates and for their ability to proudly share with their endless and true love with the rest of the world, inspiring people across the globe to never give up on love.
