Adam and Jackie Sandler are Liberal But Protective Parents
Adam and his wife have influenced their kids a great deal in terms of career. While they are still young, they have already popularized their names in the entertainment industry and it is hard to imagine they would abandon the path.
Even though Adam and Jackie Sandler have been very liberal with their kids, allowing them to explore and familiarize themselves with Hollywood, they are also strict when they need to be. For instance, he once shared that he doesn’t want his kids to grow up thinking they can do whatever they want. Adding that his wealth has made it somewhat hard to raise them the way he was raised, the actor disclosed that he deliberately refuses them some pleasures.
Also, Adam and his wife have closely monitored all of their kid’s activities in Hollywood. In fact, it is hard to think of anything the girls have done in the industry that does not involve one of their parents. Even when the girls performed Taylor Swift’s song, “Lover”, at Malibu’s Rock4EB!’s charity event in October 2019, Adam was right on the stage with them.
There are many, many highlights I recorded from tonight’s #Rock4EB but this one is pretty special. @AdamSandler handling guitar duties while his daughters Sunny & Sadie sing @taylorswift13 “Lover” in front of Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, etc. They’re major Swifties, and so good too pic.twitter.com/Z589j4tDBJ

There is no doubt she has had a successful career but it doesn’t measure up when compared to her husband who has starred in various productions that performed well at the Box Office.
While Adam has appeared in no fewer than 60 films and 15 television series thus far, Jackie Sandler has only about 37 credits as an actress.
Has Adam Sandler Featured Alongside His Wife In Any Movie?

Adam and Jackie Sandler Met On The Set of Big Daddy In The Late 90s
After Jackie played Sally in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, a 1999 sex comedy film written by Harris Goldberg and Rob Schneider, she was hired to play a waitress in Big Daddy, another 1999 comedy film. The film directed by Dennis Dugan was written by Steve Franks alongside Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler.
As the story goes, Adam’s friend Rob Schneider introduced him to Jackie after he had worked with her on Deuce Bigalow. Adam would then assign roles to Jackie in Big Daddy and “Little Nicky” (2000). Reports have it that the two started dating the same year they meet and things happened quite quickly for them.
Barely a year after they met (in 2000), Jackie embraced Adam’s faith. For many, her conversion to Judaism was the first hint at how serious their relationship was. A few years later, they were set to take the relationship to the next level.
The Couple Got Engaged In 2002 and Wedded The Following Year
It was sometime in 2002 that the couple got engaged. Adam fondly recalled the day he proposed to Jackie, relating that he played basketball that afternoon to stay calm and rehearsed what he would say while driving because he wanted Jackie to remember the things he said in years to come. According to him, Jackie called her grandmother and mother immediately after she accepted his proposal and they were all happy for them.
Adam and Jackie Sandler wasted no time in getting married after they got engaged. The duo got married on June 22, 2003. The wedding was an outdoor ceremony that was held at Dick Clark’s oceanfront Malibu estate. It was a lavish event witnessed by 400 guests, including dozens of popular figures like Rob Schneider, Sharon Osbourne, Dustin Hoffman, Jennifer Aniston, Rodney Dangerfield, and many more.
Sandler’s pet bulldog dressed in a custom tuxedo was also a sight to behold. Counting as each other’s first marriages, Sandler was 36 while Titone was 28 when they exchanged vows.
Spending Time Together and Being Honest Is The Secret of Their Marital Bliss
Adam and Jackie Sandler have been married for almost two decades and there has never been any report of crisis in their marriage. As they are members of an industry known for a high rate of divorce and failed relationships, people have had to wonder what’s the secret of the couple’s successful union. Well, many things make a happy marriage but Adam Sandler has pinned it down to honesty and spending time with each other.
According to the actor, he and his wife create the time to hang out together no matter how busy their schedules are. Also, the actor ensures he’s at home with his family early and avoids going out once it’s 9:30 PM. He also pointed out that it is important, to be honest at all times. For him, ensuring that members of his family are alright at all times is the most important thing.
Jackie Encourages Adam Sandler’s Onscreen Romance
Adam Sandler thinks highly of his wife as much as she has been very supportive of his career. It might have been imagined in some quarters that Jackie is frustrated with the fact that her husband has had to play romantic roles with other women, especially Jennifer Aniston. Adam and Aniston have been seen in several romantic comedies like “Chabad: To Life Telethon” (2008), “Just Go with It” (2011), and “Murder Mystery” (2019).
While Adam and Jennifer have worked together several times, their friendship dates back to when they were teenagers. The two reportedly met through a friend of Adam whom Jennifer was dating. Many years later, they were both superstars and Aniston was thrilled when she and Adam got to work on Just Go with It. Given the caliber of star Jennifer is, it is not hard to see why people suspect that her relationship with Adam is a nightmare for his wife Jackie. This is not so as Jackie is not in any way insecure, in fact, she pushes her husband to make his romantic scenes as real as possible.
Based on what the actor shared, Jackie has been very supportive all the way. Adam said he always get tensed and feels awkward when he has to do a romantic scene but Jackie encourages him to get it done. Apparently, Jackie likes the women he works with and nudges her husband to kiss them good in the movies.
The actor also known for his collaborations with Drew Barrymore once joked that the best thing about working with Drew is making out with her. But then, he clarified that he and the actress are like siblings. Adam added that his wife loves Drew so much that she encourages him to make out with her: “there’s no jealousy at all”, he said, explaining that she yells at him from behind the camera when she thinks he’s not being romantic enough.
