Marriage looks good on Gabrielle Union!
In a new interview on Today, the 42-year-old actress gushed about her first year of wedded bliss with husband Dwyane Wade and opened up about women turning to IVF to start a family.

"Fertility is an issue, period. And having a career is not the price you pay for having any ill will. I think TV shows and film kind of make the frigid, single-focused career woman [feel] that her career is the root of all her problems in life. And that's just not the case. [Life] just gets better with age and having a career is an amazing thing if you choose to have one... all is not lost," she said.
Though Gabrielle didn't explicitly state she and Dwyane — who married in August 2014 — have used IVF to try to conceive a baby together, the Being Mary Jane star said she fully supports women using fertility treatments to get pregnant.
As for being married to Dwyane? Gabrielle joked it's "not a bad gig!" "It's been good, he's happy and we're comfortable. We really enjoy each other in a way that's probably not very healthy for us," she said.
Earlier this week, the 33-year-old NBA star — who is a dad to three sons, Zaire, 13, Zion, 8, and Xavier, 23 months, from two previous relationships — similarly shared his secret to a happy marriage with Gabrielle. "We stick together through it all — through the great times, through the bad times," he told People.
