Meryl Streep

“You have to talk about all the issues that arise even the smallest things. You have to listen to your partner’s problems, suggestions, and advice, and accept that you’re not always right. Conversation is key to a successful marriage.”

Jada Pinkett Smith

“A wise man shared with me yesterday one word responsible for his 24 years of marriage. You know what that word was… forgiveness.”

Alicia Keys

“[Swizz and I] like surprising each other and going on secret weekend dates. One of us plans it and the other has no idea where we are going. We’ve found some undiscovered gems and moments to take hikes or walks or just discover new things about life and each other. Those are my favourite times.”

Jessie James Decker

“I think women sometimes stop flirting with their husbands and you can’t. Men want to feel good – they want to feel like their women love them. When they come home from work, don’t start nagging them with questions. Go up to them and give them a big kiss and ask them how their day was.”

Ellen Degeneres

“When we got married, Portia’s line was, ‘It’s good to be loved, it’s profound to be understood,’ and she understands me because that’s the best gift anyone could have ever given me.”

Neil Patrick Harris

“In our relationship, communication is super important. Good friends of ours said, ‘You need to talk it out,’ if that means raising your voice, you need to raise you voice. Know where you’re standing as opposed to letting stuff build up, I guess.”

Jessica Biel

“Communication, communication, communication. The ability to be really honest about how you’re feeling and what your needs are. Just be able to communicate really honestly with your partner. That worked for us so far.”

Justin Timberlake

“Never stop dating. That’s my rule, even when you get married you have to keep dating… It’s just the difference comes when you have kids and you have to actually schedule the date.”

Chrissy Teigen

“Travel away from each other a lot – that helps. We’re not together 365. It’s nice to be able to really be like, ‘Oh my gosh, I miss you. I miss you so much’. That works for both of us.”

Terry Crews

“There have been times when my wife will say something to me and I will think, ‘Whoa! What was that?’ But if I react in a certain way, it could take it to a whole other stratosphere of pain… By choosing not to be offended, or by forgiving the other person, it just keeps everything moving right along.”

Kevin Costner

“It’s the ability to say you’re sorry. I know that sounds so simple. If you’re willing to tell somebody that you love them, are you also willing to say you’re sorry? You need to, even when you think you’re right.”

Josh Duhamel

“The most romantic things are the little things, like just being there and showing up when you’re supposed to show up. It’s more about the accumulation of little things that really strengthen a relationship rather than one big thing every now and then.”

Kyra Sedgwick

“Both of us knew this was forever and we were going to work it out no matter what happens, so when we fight, it’s not so scary. You can’t be honest with someone if you think that they are going to leave.”

Michelle Obama

“To the extent that there’s lesson learned from another marriage, the thing that I tell lots of young couples is that marriage is hard work. Even the best of marriages require a lot of work – even if you’re married to your soul mate who has very few flaws.”

Ina Garten

“The secret is that you just take care of each other and admire each other and support each other and you get that back… If Jeffrey and I disagree on something, he always agrees with me!”

Kristen Bell

“If you’re in a fight with your husband, just stop and be vulnerable. Say, ‘I’m so scared this fight is going to lead to us breaking up and I don’t want to break up with you.’ Like, say that in the middle of a fight about the garbage and shit is gonna change.

Tina Fey

“The only thing that comes to mind is my mother-in-law, before I got married, she said, ‘My only advice for marriage is don’t fuss too much.’ She’s a little Southern lady, and it’s so true. Sometimes if you’re not really mad about it, don’t make yourself mad about it because you think you should be. Like, who cares?!”

Christina Aguilera

“We have something called naked Sundays…You have to keep marriage alive, spice it up. We don’t need to go anywhere, we’re just with each other. We do everything naked. We cook naked.”
