The typical hollywood relationship seems to end in breakup, so what’s the key to the success of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s seven year marriage? The key to their marriage appears to be being there for each other. But obviously, gifts don’t hurt either, and Affleck makes sure to shower his wife and two daughters with jewelery. According to People, Garner says that Affleck “knows when to swoop in with the gesture, He’s sweet that way,” and that she “would do anything for that man, because I know it’s not taken for granted.” Clearly, the couple is doing something right as their family continues to grow with a third child on the way.

Cupid’s Advice:

No one said that marriage is easy, but there are certainly some ways to keep your bond strong.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Watch out for the little things: It might not seem like a big deal to you, but a small gesture like Affleck’s jewelery giving can make your partner feel appreciated. These small gestures of love show you care.

2. Don’t criticize in public: Any problems you may have with your spouse should only be with your spouse. Don’t air your dirty laundry on Twitter, like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher did during their separation.

3. Don’t give up: Garner would do anything for Affleck, and that includes continually trying to make things work in the relationship. Even if things get hard and conflict arises, continue to fight for your relationship.
