Two years ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt secretly married in an intimate ceremony on the grounds of their chateau in the South of France. In celebration of the superstar couple’s second wedding anniversary on August 23, The Knot rounds up their 10 sweetest quotes about each other below.

1. “It’s not just that I love being in Brad’s company, which obviously I do, but it’s that we both roll up our sleeves and take on what we care about in the same way. I have a lot of respect for him, and he helps me to be better and fight hard for things that I love.” —Angelina to W magazine, November 2008

2. “One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She’s such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her. With a partner like Angie, I know that when I’m working, the kids are happy, safe, and prospering. And when Angie’s working, she knows she has the same.” —Brad to Parade in September 2011

3. “I’m satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much. A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss. You’re putting yourself on the line. That’s the risk we take. That’s the trade-off. But I’ll take it all.” —Brad to Parade in September 2011

4. “He has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.” —Angie to Marie Claire, January 2012

5. “If they see Mommy and Daddy in need of some private time ’cause they’re going to kiss and whatever, the kids get all giggly and happy—because it gives them some security.” —Angie to Marie Claire, January 2012

6. “She could have stayed absolutely private about [her double mastectomy] and I don’t think anyone would have been none the wiser with such good results. But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn’t have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger.” —Brad to USA Today, May 2013

7. “Angelina is just amazing. I’ll be tired and lie down on the sofa and then she’ll keep going until late at night. And that makes me feel like, ‘Why am I taking it easy?’ so I’ll go help out and play with the boys and get them to bed. You realize that you always have the energy inside you, and as a parent you need to have a lot of willpower.” —Brad to Psychologies magazine, September 2014

8. “We have more moments where I say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife. I’m going to learn to cook.’ and [Brad] says, ‘Oh, honey, know what you’re good at.’ … But I do like, ‘No, no, no, I’m going to get this wife thing down.’ He knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom.” —Angie on the Today show, November 2014

9. “It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife.” —Angie to Vanity Fair, November 2014

10. “It did change. We were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation, we got married with our children and they were part of the ceremony. It was all of us agreeing to be together and to just commit to this life together. Not because we had to … because we were absolutely sure we felt that much of a family.” —Angie on the Today show, November 2014
