    A few days ago, people around the world celebrated the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi but Luke Skywalker’s alter ego Mark Hamill had another glorious reason to raise a toast. It has been 39 years since he and Marilou York got married, and the force is strong with their Hollywood-romance-trends-defying love.

    Mark met York when she was working as a dental hygienist in Westwood, Los Angeles. “She came into the waiting room in jeans, white coat, breasts like melons, looking like a Vargas painting,” Mark told People magazine in 1981. “I said, ‘They let you dress like that at work?’ She said, ‘Yeah. Next.'”

    Hamill said it was ‘love at first laugh:’ “I took her to Annie Hall to see if she had a sense of humor. I dropped women if they didn’t. There was this one close-up of a minor character, curling his lips back from his teeth. She leaned over to me and whispered, ‘Bad caps.'”

    Mark and Marilou took their vows on December 17, 1978, when he was 26 and she was 23. They have three children together: Nathan (born 1979), Griffin (1983), and Chelsea Elizabeth (1988).
