Valentine’s Day isn’t particularly special for GENERAL HOSPITAL star Steve Burton (Jason), because he and his wife, Sheree Gustin, celebrate their love every day of the year! “I have the greatest wife in the world,” he bragged to Soap In Depth. “She’s just an incredible mom and partner. I couldn’t do any of the stuff I do without her. It’s the cliché of, ‘Behind every man is a great woman.’ She’s everything.”
When the couple was just starting out, they actually did do a little more on February 14. “There were years when I came home from work, and she’d done it up,” Burton recalled. “She made a romantic dinner at our place and decorated with rose petals and candles all over the place.” As for what happened after dinner, the actor jokes: “I’ll leave the rest of the evening up to the imaginations of the American people!”
But even after 20 years of marriage — and the addition of their three beautiful children, Makena, 15, Jack, 12, and Brooklyn, 4, to the family — Burton and his wife are still just as in love as they’ve ever been. They just don’t feel the need for a holiday to express their feelings for each other. “Is Valentine’s Day really just that one day?” he mused. “Or should it be more than one day? Maybe every day, if possible?”
Can’t argue with that one! “I have an amazing wife,” Burton concluded. “And an amazing life.”
