How did Michael Stern and Lisa Kudrow Meet?

Some unions seem written in the stars, despite seeming accidental. It’s as if the universe has made a plan to meet some and fall in love. Lisa Kudrow, best known for her role as Phoebe Buffray in Friends, provides an example of such a love story. She and her husband, Michael Stern, met in the 1980s while living with her French roommate and were married for over 25 years. “I lived with a French girl and he had just moved here and they were dating when we first met. But I’m extremely polite, so I saw him and said, ‘Well, he’s the perfect guy and it’s all ruined because they’re together now and I can’t (make a play for him)’,” Kudrow said. Although she developed an attraction to him, she had to accept that she was her roommate’s boyfriend.

The moment she saw him, she apologized because she knew it was inappropriate to flirt with him. Besides sticking to her morals, she didn’t want others to notice her interest in him. “But I was so afraid that someone would see that I liked him, so when he came to pick her up, he’d say, ‘Oh, hello Lisa,’ and I’d say, ‘Hi,’ and I’m going into the room and he thought I was a freak,” the Friends actress said. However, her roommate’s relationship with Stern would end a few months later, and Lisa knew she would never see him again.

Six years later, they would meet again and rekindle their friendship. This was at the roommate’s birthday party, and they never stooped. According to an interview with Contact Music, they are still friends with the roommate. Kudrow was in love and she hoped he would be much more than a friend. They decided to date and after five years they married on May 27, 1995. They would later welcome their firstborn, Julian Murray Stern. Though she rarely talks about her married life on screen, she once gave a few details about her marriage when interviewed by Glamor Magazine.

Their marriage

She stated that when they decided to tie the knot, they agreed that it was not a promise to love each other forever as it is impossible, but to always work on the various problems that arose. The couple is committed to making sure the marriage works. “It turns out that when you have a history, there’s such a bond and love takes on a different shape. But oh, I don’t want to ruin it – I’m superstitious!” said the mother. She also spoke about the need to maintain autonomy in marriage. She says they respect each other’s autonomy and not in terms of their relationship outside of marriage. She said they do things independently, knowing that they are not unity or sync, and stated that [marriage] is like being on a team. Every teammate is different, but you have the same goal.” This has allowed the couple to do things separately while being secure about their relationship.

The ideal couple.

There is less information about Lisa’s husband because he does not have a social media account. He can regularly be seen on the red carpet next to his wife. He usually keeps a low profile. On the other hand, the actress is active on social media while marketing her work and interacting with followers and fans. The couple have one child, Julian. He was born on May 7, 1998. The actress became pregnant during the fourth season of Friends. This forced the show’s producers to include her growing pregnancy as a surrogate mother in the script. Despite this, the son admits that he is not a fan of the show; he likes Game of Thrones instead.

The couple may prefer to keep a low profile, but there’s a lot they can teach others about having a long-lasting marriage and the importance of timing. They could teach younger couples the importance of understanding that nothing is perfect in a marriage. Instead, everything takes effort to make it last. People could learn the level of independence it takes to build a foundation that will last for years to come. Stern and Kudrow’s relationship is strong and their love life is nothing short of exceptional.
