Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel officially tied the knot last week in Italy, and I couldn’t be happier for them.

These two are the real deal when it comes to love, and I’m pretty confident that their union is going to far surpass the average Hollywood marriage shelf life.

Here are the three reasons I believe they’re a great match and have a marriage that will last:

Jessica is 30 and Justin is 31
These two aren’t naïve spring chickens. A lot of Hollywood couples get married young and wind up growing out of their relationship. But these two are mature – especially for Hollywood. They’ve grown up in the industry and haven’t fallen off the beaten path that is real life. They both have their heads on straight and seem to understand the finer things in life – apart from fame.

They keep their relationship hush-hush
Justin and Jessica quietly broke up in 2011 and almost silently got back together. Their engagement was nothing but speculation for months, and even the location of their wedding was kept as quiet as possible. A relationship really is between two people – not between two people, the media and their fans. Most Hollywood couples don’t get that. But Justin and Jessica really seem to understand this important concept.

Can you say respect? Through the small glimpses into their relationship that we have been allowed, it seems like Justin and Jessica have a tremendous amount of respect for each other.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes on the couple’s relationship: Justin said of Jessica in Vanity Fair, “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, okay? … I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me – for instance, her.”

Done and done! That’s love, ladies and gentlemen!
