6 pieces of marriage advice from our favourite celebrity couples

When it comes to your marriage issues and solutions, every couple is different.

Long-lasting relationships are typically a rarity in the world of Hollywood, with makeups and breakups dominating the celebrity gossip columns.

But there are some celebrity marriages that are showing us how to make a relationship thrive in the modern world.

Keep reading for the best pieces of marriage advice we can learn from our favourite celebrity couples.


Cate Blanchett: be open about your online communication

Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett says the secret to her happy marriage is sharing an email account with her husband.

Blanchett attributes the success of her 20+ year marriage to the arrangement due to the fact that her husband, Andrew Upton, “hates emails” and is happy to leave correspondence up to her.

The Australian actress says this kind of open communication helps her run her household like a “well-oiled machine.”

‘‘We work together and it’s a way of synchronising our lives. I can see what he’s up to – it’s not that I don’t trust him,’’ she says.

Emily Blunt: maintain honesty and trust in a working partnership

For couples who work together, like actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, honesty and trust are the key factors in making their partnership work.

Blunt, who has been married to Krasinski for 10 years and starred in A Quiet Place together, says at first, she was apprehensive about working together, but soon found a dynamic that worked for them.

“We really trust each other. We’re very honest with each other”, Blunt says. “We sort of have a shorthand and secret language that ultimately is gonna work for us.”


Nicole Kidman: quit texting and pick up the phone

In the age of social media and online communication, Nicole Kidman says she follows a simple rule to keep her marriage strong: not texting each other.

“We call. We’ve done this since the very beginning,” says Kidman. “We talk all the time and we FaceTime but we just don’t text because I feel like texting can be misrepresentative at times.”

However, Kidman is quick to point out her marriage issues and solutions are unique and that what works for them, may not work or other couples.

“We never tell anybody any advice about their relationship or think that we have a secret. We just approach it with humility and hope and just really love hanging out,” she says. If there is one person I can hang out with, it’s him and the girls and that’s it.”


Toni Collette: be each other’s teammates

For beloved Australian actor Toni Collette, a successful marriage means having each other’s backs, especially where children are involved.

“My husband and I are both very hands on and I think more than anything, whether or not we are in agreement about certain things,” she says. “You have to be united in what they see so they are very clear about what the boundaries are and how we exist together.”

After 15 years of marriage, Collette has also learned that being open in all aspects of life is key.

“That you need to grow together, keep communicating and stay open to each other, support each other and have each other’s backs. Be open to the adventure, really.”


Sarah Jessica Parker: look at your partner through different eyes

Sarah Jessica Parker says having kids helps her see her husband, Matthew Broderick, through different eyes.

The couple, who married in 1997, have three children together and say their kids are a big help when it comes to marriage issues and solutions.

“As complicated and chaotic as marriage and family can be, I think it’s helpful to see the way my children look at my husband. I think it’s a reminder to see that kind of purity of feeling because you get bogged down in the day to day of a marriage and it’s a lot,” Parker said.

“You’re kind of dealing with stuff every day that’s not interesting and it’s not romantic… It simply needs to be done. Often, I’ll see the look in their eyes when he enters the room or I’ll see the way a friend of his looks when he enters the room and I’m reminded — that’s that guy.”


Lily Tomlin: learn from your differences

Actress Lily Tomlin and writer Jane Wagner’s relationship is a classic tale of Hollywood love. Together, the couple make up more than 50 years of romantic partnership and comedy gold.

The two both admire each other for their own individual talents.

“When I got confidence, it was because of Lily, who believed in my work,” says Wagner.

“We loved similar things, and it was just kind of remarkable that we were on the same page, aesthetically. Her appreciation of my work meant all the difference to me. I saw her motivation. I saw her drive, and her strength taught me something.”
