Contrary to popular belief or the showbiz news and tabloid newspaper articles, not all celebrity couples are going through break-ups and separations. Yes, we still have couples like Danica and Marc who happily grace love, marriage and family. #relationshipgoals
When we asked the cute couple how they’re able to keep the love alive despite busy schedules and parenthood, they willingly shared five of their relationship secrets:
1. Make time for date days.
Marc and Danica shared that going on dates and having time with just each other is important because it brings couples back to the old times when they first started dating. It’s about keeping the spark.
The couple emphasized that communication is more than just talking. You must be able to share your thoughts, ideas, and feelings as honest as you can and listen to the other person as willing as you can. Remember your getting-to-know-each-other-phase? That should carry on even if you’re already married with kids.
3. Go on family travels.
It doesn’t matter if it’s just a Sunday picnic lunch at Tagaytay or a fun-filled Disneyland tour. Traveling with the whole family strengthens your bond and makes you a solid team. It also gives all of you something to look forward to as you grind at work and the kids spend time in school.
Respect for each other’s interests, beliefs and differences will surely avoid potential petty fights and misunderstandings. Learn to meet halfway.
5. Try to be as hands-on as possible.
Try to be hands-on with the relationship and the kids–even if you have crazy schedules.
