Phyllis has succeeded in living a life away from the limelight. While her husband made a career in the movie industry, she went ahead to pursue a career as a medical worker. Ever since she got married to Ralph, she has maintained a low profile. It has been noticed that she is not active on any of the social media platforms. Perhaps her personal interests are known to her children and husband. Also, Phyllis has no issue with the glitz and glamour of the spotlight, but she is not interested in it.

The wife of the Hollywood star has been able to establish herself in her profession. Her current net worth is an estimated $3 million. Nothing is known of her cars and houses due to her private life. However, it is a known fact that she lives in the same house with her husband in Long Island, New York.

Ralph Macchio and Phyllis Fierro First Met as Teenagers

The duo met as teenagers when they were in high school during the 16th birthday party of one of Ralph’s cousins. At that time, Phyllis was 15 years old. The actor noted that Phyllis was his cousin’s friend whom he fell in love with at first sight. Records have it that Ralph began taking dance classes at the age of 3 and started performing with a local dance crew before he clocked 16 years old. Therefore he was relatively popular when he met Phyllis.

Ralph and Phyllis dated all through high school and tied their marital knot 10 years after their meeting. They were 15 and 14 years of age respectively when they first met; indeed as teenagers, it couldn’t have been anything else but love at first sight. They moved from being teenage friends who were fond of each other to getting married on April 5, 1987, and have remained married for 34 years now.

Even after their wedding in 1987, the couple hasn’t just been together, but they seem to have fallen deeper in love with themselves after many years of being married. Phyllis Fierro and Ralph Macchio are one of the cutest and most admired couples in Hollywood. Perhaps we can accord this to the fact that only one person is in the entertainment world.

They Have Been Married For 34 Years With No Publicly Known Marital Issues

One of the things that becomes a problem in the life of some actors is that their marriage doesn’t last. However, Phyllis and Ralph have been able to remain married for a long time despite all the odds, including one of which Ralph described as himself being used to “one foot in, one foot out.” The couple who have been married for 34 years have found a way to make their love strong enough to withstand any hardship. In an interview with People TV, Ralph mentioned that his long-term partner has been more than supportive, especially in filling the gap when he is absent due to his job.

In their home, Phyllis has been the support system of her husband in creating a balance between his work life and being a family man. He noted that without Phyllis and without the foundation they had laid down and the family they established, it would have been difficult to maintain the one foot in, one foot out relationship he has in Hollywood. The actor states that without Phyllis, there would not have been a balance in their marriage. He credited both of them for their commitment to the marriage. He specially commended his wife for being by his side all the whole time.

Also speaking about their commitment to each other, the actor disclosed that in both difficult and hard times, and through all they have encountered, he believes that they are meant to be together.
