Just last week during promo for 'The Monuments Men', Damon said, "When I was in my twenties, I wondered if I'd ever be able to settle down. But I found the right person and it was like getting struck by lightning - literally, everything changed in my life. My life is so much easier because of my wife and my marriage. Everything makes sense."

A year later he proposed and we'll never forget the lavish ceremony these celebrity lovers put on in 1999. Since then they have had 4 children, built their own and collective empires, survived scandals, relocations and retirement and seem happier than ever!
