The Beckhams renew wedding vows

After almost 18 years of marriage, David and Victoria Beckham are going to renew their vows, as David Beckham said on an interview in a special 75th anniversary edition of BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, in which the retired football star opens up about his life with former Spice Girl, Victoria, 42.

“We have renewed our vows since (our fist wedding)” David, 41, said. “It was a lot more private, about six people there in our house.”
Their renewal was very different from their original wedding in 1999 where the couple wore matching purple outfits. “I even had a top hat in purple,” he noted. “What was I thinking? I looked like the guys out of Dumb and Dumber.”
The retired sport star talked about their marriage going strong and the great dedication they put into it. “We're a strong family unit. We've got strong parents. We were brought up with the right values,” he said. “Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times. It's about working through it.”
“We know each other better than anybody. People have talked about, ‘Do we stay together because it‘s a brand?‘ Of course not. We stay together because we love each other, because we have four amazing children,” he continued. “Do you go through tough times? Of course. That's part of relationships. It's part of marriages. It's part of having children. It's part of having responsibilities.”
The sports star, who recently collaborated on a new fashion collection with Kent & Curwem, also spoke about the time he met Victoria for the first time. “She was never into football. Everyone at the time had their favorite Spice Girl. I remember seeing Victoria on the telly, and she was dressed in this black cat suit, which is one of the reasons why she became my favorite Spice Girl.”
He added: “I'd seen her the week before, and I must have caught her eye because then the week after she came to another game. She was obviously there for a reason and I was hoping I was that reason, and apparently I was.”
Although the couple had a cute meet, David said they have grown into a strong couple over the years and they still work together as a team.
“Back when we were 22,23 years old, the only responsibility that we had was to ourselves and to our jobs at the time,” he said. “We're very respectful of our life and when we do go through tough times, we work through them as a family, as a unit.”
