The secret behind his parents' successful marriage
His parents have been married for more than four decades. They first met at school at the age of 12 before marrying nearly a decade later in 1982.
During an interview with Norah O'Donnell of CBS Evening Show, Bono, while discussing their relationship, said that their relationship started with flirtation and romance but quickly moved into friendship which he thinks is a real part of who they are.
He also described her to be a mystery not only to him but to their kids as well, explaining that he has spent 40 years trying to get to know her and has a long way to go calling her a wise person.
Having said that, he added to say that she allowed him to do a kind of free dive into the depths of their relationship, but she didn't want him to stay too long.
Hewson said she wanted to be treated equally, which she thinks is important in every relationship.
She said having respect for each other and not being possessive, and giving each other personal space is important.
Sometimes they both put each other a bit on a pedestal, and sometimes under a pedestal, but they keep the balance, always holding on to the truth of each other, she added.
During an interview with Vogue, Bono said that his wife had never been "just" his girlfriend, and now she was never going to be "just" his wife.
They were equal partners in an adventure they hadn't figured out: their path.

Men experience great fear during childbirth of kids because there is nothing they can do even after hearing the scream or being upset as they cannot smack the person who is making do that, he said.
He also said that he recorded her heartbeat because he was going to make a song using her heartbeat as a rhythm.
