Celine Dion's Secret to a Happy Marriage
Sat 27-07-2013

Celine Dion and Rene Angelil, have been married for 18 years. She met her husband when she was only 12 and he was 38!

They now have 3 children together.

Celine was recently asked to speak about her marriage and here is what she had to say:

"Rene and I had our tough times. It wasn't always easy. We had tension between us. It's never easy being husband and wife, but add to that we are in business together, dealing with all the added pressures of shows, concerts, tours, traveling. It was hard a lot of hard work."

After trying to ignore their scheduling and communication issues, the singer turned to a girlfriend for advice:

"She taught me it never goes away. It sits there and gets worse. She taught me how to say things the right way. It's lessons that every married couple should know to hold their relationship together."

Celine learnt that there's a "right way" to communicate in a relationship:

"It changed the way we related to each other. We laugh. We joke. We kid each other. We want our marriage to last forever. Talk over everything and you'll find you are still on the honeymoon … communication, it's the most important. It's the secret."
