TV star Maury Povich and newswoman Connie Chung open up to Closer Weekly, revealing the secret to their lasting marriage. Maury tells Closer he is a man of few words when it comes to disagreements at home and making his marriage last.

“Whatever arguments you have during the day? Once your head hits the pillow, it’s over,” Maury, 79, says of his secret to his 33 years of marriage.
