And on the date, if they go to a restaurant and get a booth, don’t try and sit next to her in the booth, it’s weird okay. HC: What’s your best relationship advise? MM: In a relationship you and your significant other should always strive to be transparent with one another. And the old saying “communication is key” should be your motto.

They have been married for almost 20 years and both have respective and successful careers, in their own right. Even with raising children, work and I’m sure their fair share of martial ups and downs, they still find and show the love and still speak positively about each other.
