Pratt and Schwarzenegger seem poised to have more anniversaries to come. In order to keep their marriage strong, the couple tries to follow an age-old relationship advice.

“I’m a big communicator… Communication constantly is really the most amazing gift you can have in a partnership and relationship,” Schwarzenegger said last year.

She also added, “For me, especially in this time, constant communication [is important]. I’m not good with leaving things unsaid. I can’t do it. I’m not the kind of person who is able to do it. I don’t like to go to bed angry.”

Schwarzenegger shared that Pratt also understands how important it is to talk things out, and the two of them try to communicate as often as possible.

“We both communicate a lot—it’s super important to us,” Schwarzenegger said. “And we also always check in, no matter how crazy our days are. We just like making sure we’re doing a temperature gauge with one another because we’re a team and we want to make sure that team is a strong one.”
