The vibrant couple admits that they have seen a lot of ups and downs during their five-year relationship, but have tried hard not to succumb to the pressure. Channing, when asked about the secret to his happy marriage, once said,

“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.”

Yes, my dears, a little bit of care and attention can go a long way!

“Do you know how you can 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.”

You may know this celebrity couple for their displays of public affection whenever possible. However, this couple is also highly ambitious, and has managed to juggle both their professional and personal lives pretty well. They believe that the key to a successful relationship lies in trust and respecting one another’s decisions. In an interview, Jennifer remarked,

“My husband is always the one saying to me, ‘You have to work, you have to work. This is part of who you are. We’ll figure it out.’”

Awww. If only every husband realizes that a wife needs to be herself and have a separate life apart from the relationship she’s in. (This is true for the men as well!)

This couple understands the importance of paying attention to minor details and doing little things just to show that you care for the other person. Going over the top in love is not always required; sometimes, just little gestures of care and affection can do the trick. Josh Duhamel, when asked about the secret to his happily married life, said,

“It’s not so much about the big gestures; 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.” 

7. Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon

“Of course the kids come first in planning your life, but it’s incredibly important to keep your relationship as a couple strong and make time for it. It’s the foundation on which everything is built.”

It has been more than 15 years since Victoria and David tied the knot, and they still have the same love and respect for each other as they did back then. When David Beckham was asked about his idea of romance, he remarked,

“If you love someone, you want to treat them, surprise them, remind them how you feel, whether that means a weekend away somewhere, or a bowl of fruit in the morning laid out in the shape of a heart. I know Victoria thinks I’m romantic like that.” He further added, “People can say what they like. But me and Victoria will always stay together as husband and wife … We’ll always stick together.”

Tissues, anyone?

It all depends on the commitment you have towards your partner and your relationship.
