#6: Don't Be Afraid to Work at Keeping Your Relationship Strong
Although it's tempting to think that true love means never having to wonder, Why the heck did he do that? anyone who's ever been a part of a couple surely understands that even the best partnerships require a certain amount of work.

That's why we cheer whenever a seemingly perfect pair, like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, talk openly about how they "need to feed" their relationship to keep it going strong, day after day and year after year.

"There's no such thing as a relationship that's magically right," says Carle. "It's only right because you worked at it."

Bottom line: Unlike the rich and famous, the rest of us can't run off to a secluded Caribbean island to reconnect with our honey every time the going gets tough. So it's nice to know that the real essentials for making love last forever -- communication, respect, laughter -- are absolutely free, no red-carpet pass required.
