Gabrielle Union and NBA star Dwyane Wade have been happily married for 3 years. This is her 2nd marriage. She was previously married to former NFL running back Chris Howard for 5 years.

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ star credits couples therapy with helping her maintain a happy marriage.

The 44-year-old actress insists she and Wade have to keep working on their romance, just like everyone else.

Gabby knows that even a good man can’t make a miserable woman happy once the chemistry fades.

Many couples choose therapy after the chemistry fades, because they didn’t take the time in the beginning to make sure they were equally yoked.

“We’ve kind of figured it out now, but I guess maybe we should tweet live from couples therapy. And when you ask us, we’re gonna tell you, there’s a process to happy,” she tells Complex magazine.

“So I started doing the work to help myself feel like I was worthy and I had value, and the more work I did on myself the more I was like, ‘OK, I wanna tell this story too,'” she explains.

“I’m so happy. I’m so f–king happy,” she gushed.

Gabby, who survived a rape at age 19, says sharing her story in her new autobiography may help others change their lives for the better, too.

Her new autobiography, “We’re Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True” is set to hit bookstores next month.
