In six seasons of "Breaking Bad," we've never seen Walter and Skyler White sit down with a marriage counselor -- though, arguably they really should have. In real life, Bryan Cranston, the Emmy Award-winning actor who plays Walter, told Rolling Stone that couple's therapy is something he and wife Robin Dearden attend regularly. "I see a [therapist] in L.A. from time to time, when I'm feeling edgy or anxiety-ridden," he told the magazine recently. "And my wife and I go to a couples therapist. Our agreement is, if either of us feels like we want to go, the other can't object." The 57-year-old actor -- whose first marriage to writer Mickey Middleton ended in 1982 -- said that meeting Dearden when they "were both mature" has made all the difference in their 25-year marriage. Still, Cranston told the magazine that he doesn't believe we're all fated to be with one specific person in life. "I don't believe there's just one person for you," he said. "And quite frankly, love among adults is conditional. 'We're in love, right now. Oops, you killed someone? Ok, wait a minute, that's kind of a problem for me.' It's all conditional." Cranston met Dearden on the set of the 1980s TV series "Airwolf." The couple have one daughter together.
