See what love advice celebrity couples in long-term relationships have found useful for their own relationships!
Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof: These Buffy the Vampire Slayer costars married in 2003 and have two daughters. When she was asked about the best love advice she had ever received, the How I Met Your Mother celeb said, “‘Don’t ever spend more than three weeks apart.’ Two and a half weeks, maybe three, was the longest we ever did.”
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill: This country music Hollywood couple has been together for 19 years. McGraw said in an interview with Great American Country, “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.”
David and Victoria Beckham: This power celebrity couple has been married for 15 years. David Beckham says the secret to their relationship and love is that they “have fun together.” Beckham told People, “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.”
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos: This celebrity couple, who met on the set of All My Children, got married in 1996 and have three children. Ripa said her best love advice is, “Don’t get divorced after your first argument! I have a lot of friends that have one fight and that’s it, they get divorced. I go, ‘Wait a minute! Oh my gosh, you guys! Calm down! You’ll forget in three days what you were fighting about.’” The celeb also revealed in an interview on Watch What Happens Live that the secret to their marriage is that they have “lots of sex.”
Robin Meade and Tim Yeager: The CNN anchor and her long-term boyfriend married in 1993. The best love advice she has ever given is, “Gals, don’t marry someone for their looks. Sooner or later we all age and start to droop. Don’t marry someone for their position and don’t marry someone for money. Money comes and goes, and since when is that love? Marry someone because they make you laugh. Humor is always sexy. Besides, it’s awfully hard to get mad at someone while they’re making you laugh.”
