Communication is vital to most lifeforms, especially when two of those lifeforms are in a long-term, committed relationship. Divorce is hard, but sometimes creating a healthy line of communication can be even harder. Ciara and Russell Wilson recently gave us what they think is the true key to a happy marriage, and according to them, the answer is simple.
"I think the most important thing is, first of all, just loving one another, you know? For love, you'll do anything and you take care of one another. And also communication."
Two of the leading causes of divorce have to do with communication and sex, and we all know that you can't really have one without the other. On the red carpet of the ESPY's, the couple revealed that the secret to their matrimonial bliss lies in the ability to talk things out.
When the kids are out of control, your finances are misbehaving, and life seems to be erupting into a whirlwind of bullsh*t all around you, the last thing you feel like doing is sitting down and talking to your partner about everything that bothers you; but ultimately, having a healthy line of communication is the only way to push through the hardest times in their lives.
"There's always a lot of highs, and there are lows, and everything else, but communication is everything. And I think when you're able to do that and take care of your kids, it's a lot of fun."
Fun is a major understatement for Ciara and Russell's romantic life, which is filled with creative date nights and impromptu anniversary trips to Fiji. Three years after their wedding, these two are still on a never-ending honeymoon and couldn't see their lives any other way. Ciara told Entertainment Tonight:
"It was a really good time, it was very relaxing. We didn't have a long time, but it was very sweet. And I think, more than anything, [the best part was] just recognizing, 'Wow, we're three years into this thing.'"
During the interview, the couple also revealed that we may be seeing a new addition to the Wilson Clan in the future, it just won't be the near future. While Russell is ready to bring their next baby into the world as we speak, Ciara says that she's enjoying dancing with a flat belly for now:
"I love being a mom. It is by far the coolest job in life, and I do look forward to having more of those sweet little angels. And it'll happen at the perfect time."
