Actor John Travolta, best known for hits such as Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Grease (1978), believes that the key to his happy marriage to actor Kelly Preston is being able to laugh at one another.

Travolta says he and his wife, whom he married in 1991, experience their fair share of "stress", but are able to overcome their problems with humour, reports

"We just have a great sense of humour about each other. You know we have the stress that everyone else has, but also there's the moment," Travolta said on the TV show Extra.

"I don't know why I'm laughing, but we have that ability to have good fun at each other, you know," he added.

The couple has a daughter, Ella, and a son, Benjamin. Their eldest son, Jett, died at age 16 in 2009 while on vacation in the Bahamas. In memory of his son, Travolta and his wife set up the Jett Travolta Foundation, a non-profit organisation that helps children with special needs.
