Ali Hewson admits - "All I Want Is You"

Bono's wife Ali Hewson has revealed how her marriage has survived all the media pressure and competitive models!
Ali has said her marriage has overcome all odds and survived. She met Bono aged 15 and married him at 22. They will next month celebrate 24 years of wedded bliss.

'Whatever we have is working. There is no competition with supermodels'. Ali said when the couple got married 'the deal was' she wanted to look after the children and the home and he was to do the talking!

Ali only tried to step into the limelight to support The Chernobyl Childrens Charity or to promote her ethical fashion label Edun.

Yes! Thank you Flavia, I had no idea they had been married that long.



To Bono and Ali, two people who still love each other very much after all those years is truly special.

Cheers to both of them. They're a wonderful example of a couple that make it work.
In this day and age with the rate of divorce and people changing partners at the drop of a hat, especially in the world of celebrities, for Bono and Ali to have such a rock-solid marriage is to be applauded.
Nobody's perfect, and it's not like we are trying to say they are perfect, but they're doing a lot of things right, and they are amazing role models for their children.

I love any thread that mentions Ali's great qualities! Thanks for posting it!

I've been married 31 years--we've known each other since the 5th grade. I guess being friends matters the most. Congrats to Ali & Bono my other favorite couple! You can see love in their eyes when they look at each other.

I should have mentioned this earlier, but congrats to all of you who are celebrating wonderful anniversaries!! JCoster 24!! U2Fanatic 10 yrs!!, Hidy 23!!, Bono's Doll 31!!! Sweet!!
Much more happiness in the coming years.

And to all single/divorced gals out there, (me included) cheers too for being independent women who make a difference in other people's lives by loving and caring for others too.

Oh well, let's just cheer for all women in general, especially Ali and all Plebans !


(Hope all my "cheering" here isn't annoying too many people )

Wow all these Interferencers who have been married for so long and have made things work for the long haul, just like Ali and Bono! Congratulations to all of you! It is no easy feat and I commend you all. I was married 17 yrs until my separation then divorce final 5 yrs later. I've been independent nearly 10 years now and I am very comfortable with that.

It is so sad how many unions do NOT last, so those of you who are still going strong, keep it up!

....and an early Happy Anniversary to the Hewsons!

Big Congrats to ya!!! And what a GREAT PLACE TO CELEBRATE!! We stayed at the Clarence 2 years ago and it was a wonderful experience and well worth the money! Those beds are so comfy and with egyptian cotton sheets too.. You are going at a good time of year..after high season and while weather is mild... We went at the beginning of September and it was in the 60s with couple days of rain during our 2 week stay. We rented a car and scoped out the bottom half of ireland. Flew into Dublin and fly back out of Shannon.

Enjoy your stay there...

It really is hard to find that one person to have "forever" with. Really admire those who are lucky enough to have this. Congratulations to all of you Interferencers who are experiencing this happy bliss

The Hewsons,what an incredibly sweet love story

Well - yes they have made it this long. But don't go about thinking that Bono has been faithful and they have had a eprfect marriage. Anyone with half a brain knows he has pushed the faithful boundary one too many times. 24 years of friendship I say - not "wedded bliss".

And you're basing this "pushing of the faithful boundary one too many times" on what? Their obvious coolness towards each other? Those countless nasty tabloid reports? Her staying in the relationship only in order to further her own career?

Or was that some other couple(s), and not them?

Pathetic.
