7 Secrets That Keep Celeb Couples Together
Channing and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Married: Five years
“To make it work you have to pay attention. You have to want to make sure they're okay. I know if Jenna's had a bad dream. I know if she's going to wake up in a good mood. I just know. Maybe because I've spent a lot of time with her, but pay attention guys. If you love the person, just figure out how to make them happy. Write a little note. Put it under the toilet seat. Do something crazy. Make them laugh. It's not that hard to pay attention and care,” Tatum told TeenHollywood.com.
Josh Duhamel and Fergie
Married: Five years
"It’s not so much about the big gesture; it’s more about being thoughtful. 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,” Duhamel told Parade.
Guiliana and Bill Rancic
Married: Seven years
“You've got to be good to each other…it really comes back to respect. I was raised in a very Catholic, Italian family and it was all about respect. Don't talk badly about [your partner] the second they walk out the door; really preserve your relationship and be good to each other. Treat it like gold,” Guiliana gushed to Your Tango.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Engaged: Nine years
“Do you know how you tell real love? It’s when someone else’s interest trumps your own. I like to put it that way: trumps your own. Love of somebody else—of family, of your kids—becomes the most important, most worthwhile thing in your life. It’s what you foster and protect,” Pitt told Parade.
David and Victoria Beckham
Married: 15 years
"You have to have fun together. We've got three beautiful children together which our whole time is making them happy and making sure they're healthy and good so most of our time is spent on them. But we have to also spend time together as a couple and that's always important," the soccer star told People.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
Married: 18 years
“You just have to love the skin you’re in, basically. You have to walk this life together. There will be times, ups and downs, but you have to essentially like the person that you love. I think it’s important to laugh a lot and have a good time. Life is so short. It sounds contrived but it’s the truth,” McGraw revealed to Great American Country.
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick
Married: 26 years
“A big key is giving each other the room to grow and change the rules. It's hard, but Kev was always like, 'Whatever you need, honey,' and I admire him for that,” Sedgwick noted in an interview with Good Housekeeping.
