Julia, 60, met Brad, 63, while both studying at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, working in a comedy troupe together on campus.
They would go on to perform together on Saturday Night Live from 1982 to 1984 and guest-starred alongside each other on two episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
The former college sweethearts tied the knot on June 25, 1987, when the actress was 26, and Brad was 29.

Five years into their marriage they began having children, and they share two sons together, Henry, 28, and Charles, 24.
Julia has been through an extremely tough time in her personal life more recently, having revealed that she was battling breast cancer in 2017.
In 2019, Brad told UsWeekly that his wife’s breast cancer battle had been ‘very challenging’ but added: ‘I think in the end she came out so well. We’re blessed and grateful, she’s got great health care… that, for us, was a wakeup call.’
He said that the ordeal made the pair appreciate life more, saying: ‘I think that’s really true. Definitely you go, “This isn’t a permanent condition, life.” And so you do sort of take stock.’

In a recent interview with Variety, Julia compared her cancer battle to facing lockdown life amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘I had no sense of arrogance whatsoever about [the pandemic],’ she said. ‘When you’re face-to-face with your mortality in the way that cancer takes you there — the pandemic I found to be strangely the same.’
She added experiencing cancer made her realise ‘life is short thing’ and made her want to travel more with husband Brad and their kids.
Brad – full name William Bradford Hall – is also a celebrated comedian, director and writer, best known for playing the news anchor on SNL’s Weekend Update, and creating sitcoms The Single Guy and Watching Ellie.
He’s also made appearances in shows Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
