Michael J Fox & Tracy Pollan
If there is anything to prove a marriage will last it is chronic illness.
Michael was born in 1961 in Canada. Tracy was born in 1960 in New York. The couple met while working on the set of the hit TV series ‘Family Ties’. They were both involved in other relationships at the time.
Two years later, in 1987, they met again and started going out. That same year they got engaged and on July 16, 1988 they were married. The wedding was intimate with only family and close friends present.
The honeymoon was spent in the Caribbean.
In 1991, Michael was told he has Parkinson’s disease. According to him and Tracy ‘when they married, they married no matter what happens’. This is their belief and they are sticking to it.
The couple has four children – Sam born 1989, Aquinnah born 1995, Schuyler born 1995 and Esme born 2001.
