-Mark and Kelly recount a story of silly jealousy on Mark's part in the new book"What makes a Marriage last" a compilation of 40 long married couples by actress Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue.
-Mark."After we were married I was doing a show in Boston,and I couldn't get ahold of her all day.We didn't have cell phones then. I got a really bad feeling.So I got on a flight to New York and called her from the plane and asked what she was doing that night."
-Kelly says she told him she was cleaning toilets that night. Kelly"Apparently he thought that sounded very fishy. He wanted to catch me.So he gets home and tells the doorman to call up to my apartment and tell me there's a flower delivery. I'm excited because I'm thinking 'oh my gosh he's sending me flowers'!So I open the door and it's him. He comes in - doesn't even say hello. He's looking for something.I'm still looking for the flower guy and he's sweeping the scene."
-All Mark found was Kelly in a bathrobe holding a mop. Mark regrets his actions from back then. Mark"Jealousy feels horrible and you know you're wrong."
-Mark says he's less jealous these days.They were married 24 years ago when they were 25 and 26.
