Gabrielle Union's 'unhealthy' marriage

Gabrielle Union's marriage isn't "very healthy".

The 'Being Mary Jane' star tied the knot with Dwyane Wade last year and admits the pair can't get enough of each other.

Speaking on the TODAY show, she said: "Like hot, delicious, it doesn't get old! Everyday he gets out of bed I'm like, 'Yes, thank you Jesus!' He looks just as good going as he does coming! It's nice! It's not a bad gig! Some people look at marriage as the end of freedom.

"And for some reason, especially my husband, has sort of looked at it as the freedom to finally be the man he always wanted to be. I've had to get used to him being so freakishly happy ... we really enjoy each other in a way that's probably not very healthy for us."

And the 42-year-old actress believes it is "cheesy" and "unconditional" love which keeps her family together.

She explained: "I was raised in a family that was all about unconditional love. No matter what incarnation your family comes in, you are enough; like a lot of cheesy love. And that works for us, and that's how we family.

"It's about unconditional love, inclusion. To be a part of a programme that actually celebrates that and all different kinds of family, I jumped at the chance. That family encompasses so many people. Not just the people that have been born into the family but extended family, stepkids, friends who have possibly been displaced from their families. Everyone is included and everyone counts."
