In a recent virtual interview with USA Today, husband-and-wife duo Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos discussed everything from working together to the secret to their enduring marriage. While co-hosting ‘Live with Kelly and Mark’ is a new stepping stone for the couple who have already worked together multiple times, their strong bond and confident abilities have provided them with a seamless integration that “never scared them.” Ripa and Conseulos are very similar in their work ethic and hold each other accountable for fair and honest feedback. They’ve taken the idea of couples counseling very seriously, learning from doctor Linda Carter that it is always right to say something positive to each other before bed, even during moments of conflict. However, there have been scenarios where heated arguments take place, which the couple has been comfortable discussing on their podcast, ‘Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.’ The hosts also mention that while they are comfortable talking about most things, they never disregard each other’s private boundaries.
The couple’s 27-year marriage is a testament to the value they place on their traditional values and love of being part of a family. And while their children are now grown, the couple’s commitment to each other has never waned. Also echoing each other’s sentiments, they believe their long-lasting relationship is a fusion of commitment, compromises and a never-quit attitude.
