Charlie Wilson is a vet in the music game, and by his side for the last 18 years of his flourishing career has been his wife, Mahin. Uncle Charlie actually met Mahin while he was in rehab. She was a social worker and he was a drug addict — at the time — but somehow the two made it work, mostly because of the ultimatum his wife gave him when they got together. Uncle Charlie told us she told him:
“If I’m going to quit my job and be with you, we have to go everywhere together. I was like, ‘Everywhere? Damn. OK.’
“You have to do every day everywhere. That’s true love. A lot of people can’t do that. A lot of people are trying to get away from that, but then, you’re not really in love are you?”
I don’t know about that. Every day, all day is a lot, but one thing you can’t say about these two is that they aren’t best friends. The agreement is clearly working for them, as Charlie has been sober for 19 years now, and the couple has been going strong since 1995. I’m just wondering how many other couples out there could do the same?
