38 Quotes From Celebrities Who Know How To Make Love Last

Here are their secrets to a successful relationship.

Falling in love? That’s the easy part. But once the honeymoon dust settles, how do you nurture a loving and lasting relationship? What’s the glue that holds it all together?

From New York to Los Angeles and towns in between, YourTango set out to discover that answer by asking, “What’s the best love advice you ever heard?” 

Here, you’ll learn the marriage mantra Kyra Sedgwick shared with Angie Harmon, why actor Eric Dane considers himself so lucky in love, and much more. 

1.

“My mom always used to say, “You can’t say I love you before you can say I.” And I think that sort of makes sense.” — Mindy Kaling​

2.

“From my mom and dad, because they’re happily married for a long time: Just listen. Listen to him. I’m so independent and driven and stubborn. Just let him talk. It’s about not being so stubborn and having to win every argument. My parents set a great example. They love each other and take care of each other so much.” — Erin Andrews

3.

“It’s kind of cheesy, but my mama, who you all have seen on the show, says to cook for your man. She’s Southern, so when he comes home, be pullin’ a pie out of the oven. That’s always been her advice, and you know what? It works. Your man wants to see you in the kitchen, puttin’ some love into some food; it works for Eric, that’s for sure.” — Jessie James

4.

“The best advice I’ve ever been given is being handed a Bible. That’s the blueprint for marriage that we go by, and that’s what our marriage is grounded in. We also have other married couples who are examples in our lives. My parents have been married over 40 years, and both sets of grandparents for over 65 years. When you see couples in long-term relationships and you see them go through good times and bad times, you realize it’s about being committed enough and loving your partner enough to hang in there regardless.” — Candace Cameron Bure​

5.

“My mom told me, “It shouldn’t be that difficult.” My parents had their moments for sure, but the majority of their relationship has been really great. It shouldn’t be that much work to make love work.” — Anthony Carrino​

6.

“Always be honest.” — John Colaneri​…

100 Best ‘I Love You Quotes’ For Soulmates And Kindred Spirits

Because you can never say those 3 little words too much.

Saying “I love you” to your soulmate never goes out of style.

Those three little words say it all — whether you’re saying them to someone’s face or offering them in the form of simple love quotes you send them on social media, in texts, DMs, or even in good, old-fashioned greeting cards. Or do they?

No one can deny the power of hearing the person you love actually say “I love you” out loud.

Once strung together, those three words are a big deal, and saying them to the love of your life is just as meaningful the 500th time as it is the first time around.

If you’re true soulmates and kindred spirits, you’ll never get tired of hearing them said, and you’ll never get tired of saying them to him or her in return.

In fact, when you’re in a long-term romantic relationship with someone you truly love, it’s easy to fall into the (totally beautiful, even healthy) habit of saying “I love you” multiple times a day, every day.

But when “I love you” becomes the new “Good morning,” “Goodnight,” and “I gotta run, but could you please pick up some more almond milk later if you get a chance?” — it can start to fall on, well, let’s not say deaf ears, but certainly less swept-of-their-feet ears.

While those three words certainly mean a lot, there are plenty of other ways to express the unconditional love you feel that you may not have thought about much.

In fact, there are as many different ways to say, “I love you” as there are reasons to say it — and then some!

It can be fun and romantic to mix up your daily I love you’s and find new ways to make your partner’s heart melt all over again.

Of course, we can’t all be Shakespeare.

For some of us, words of affirmation simply aren’t our primary love language, and probably never will be, so managing to string those three little words together usually feels like an accomplishment in and of itself.

Fortunately, there’s nothing wrong with borrowing a little romantic inspiration in the form of quotes about love taken from authors, poets, movies, songs … you name it!

Whether you’ve been saying it for years or it’s the very first time, get ready to make …

These 37 Hilariously Funny Love Puns Will Make Your Day

So corny, but sooo good.

I’m not sure if love is blind but it’s definitely hilarious at times. You just have to look at it from the right perspective, so using these funny quotes and puns about love when times get tough is a great way to lighten the mood.

When you enter into a committed relationship, you’re two (usually) imperfect human beings trying to understand yourselves, each other, and the world as best as you can. Not to mention you have the added pressure of understanding each other as parts of a whole.

That whole being a union of any sort. A union you also have to keep alive through time, effort, love, and consistency among other things.

Mistakes are bound to happen between two honest people who love each other and are making an effort to sustain the bond. Due to that inevitable reality, it’s important to not take everything so seriously. Otherwise, your relationship dies out with our sanity.

I think this is sound advice considering another similar and popular piece of advice is to find someone who has the same sense of humor as you.

Imagine living somewhere with a person who can’t make you laugh for the rest of your life. Imagine someone laughing at something you find irritating and troublesome, or vice versa.

It all comes down to your intellect and how you view the world. You want your intellect and world views to be compatible with your life partner and you can tell about those two things from a person’s sense of humor.

Humor is good for bonding and for dealing with stressful situations. That’s why humor is a good indicator of personality. Different kinds of humor reveal that a person has different personality traits.

You can tell which ones people have according to their specific sense of humor. And, of course, for a compatible relationship it’s important for two people to know each other’s unique personalities and views.

From funny to silly to downright corny, you can’t deny that puns make you smile.

And being that we all need a good laugh every now and again, why not check out these 37 love puns that are guaranteed to make you giggle your butt off?

1. Drumroll please!

“It was an emotional wedding. Even the cake was in tiers.”

2. Oh, you got us good.

50 Romantic Love Quotes To Use In Your Wedding Vows

Make your “I do” mean something as special as your love for each other.

Your wedding vows are some of the most important words you will say in your life.

They carry so much meaning and promise that the thought of even putting them down on paper is nerve-wracking. The idea of having to say them to the love of your life in front of your most important people is seventeen thousand times more nerve-wracking.

And of course, if you want to skip the traditional route and learn how to write your own wedding vows, you surely to want them to be as beautiful as they are sincere, whether you use your own words or gather a collection of the most meaningful love and wedding quotes you can find.

An old friend of mine wrote her own marriage vows for her wedding, and they’re so simple yet meaningful that I had to include them here as an example:

“I will never stop telling how you how much I love you. I promise to remind you how handsome you are, how kind and generous you are, and to remind you that you are the most amazing person and father that I’ve ever met in my life.

I promise to be your best friend, because you are mine. I vow to be yours, and truly yours, as I have been ever since you sat next to me at our high school lunch table.

In sickness and in health: I promise to take care of you, even when you’ve over-indulged the night before. For richer or for poorer: I promise not to spend all our money at Target.

And finally, I promise to always love you, and I will never miss a chance to tell you again.”

Meanwhile, her beloved husband, responded:

“I take you as my wife, my partner for life, and as my best friend. I vow to love you more each and everyday. I will always be honest and patient with you. I vow to always be there when you need me the most. To grow old and raise our beautiful child together. I am truly blessed to be a part of your life and to have you in mine.”

Vows can be intimidating to write. Not only are they made out to be the most important words you could say to your partner ever, but you also have to …
