David Beckham Says THIS Is the Secret to His and Victoria’s Happy Marriage

Victoria Beckham has pretty much become as well known for her #goals-worthy partnership with hubby David Beckham as she is for having been in the Spice Girls. Though she made the decision NOT to join the pop group’s recent reunion, she has remained very public about her commitment to her husband and family, which is no small undertaking for a woman also busy continuing to build her fashion empire.


The pair have spent almost 18 years (!) projecting the image of a super in-love and supportive couple, and from what we saw of their son Brooklyn’s (now-over) relationship with Chloë Grace Moretz, it seems they’ve passed on those loving and respectful values to their kids. But, of course, it takes work to maintain a successful marriage, and outside of their “inventive” date nights, David has dished on what exactly keeps the two so close.

On a recent appearance on BBC Radio 4 show “Desert Island Discs,” David revealed that he and Victoria renewed their wedding vows in a tiny, private ceremony — a more intimate celebration of their family than their massive original wedding for sure.

But it isn’t all romantic gestures that keep a marriage strong — David credits both his and Victoria’s families and the family they built together as important parts of their partnership.

“We’re a strong family unit,” he said. “We’ve got strong parents, we were brought up with the right values. Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times. And it’s about working through it. We’ve come up against tough times. We know each other better than anybody knows us. We talk. We have amazing children.”

Happy new year everyone x ❤

While David’s interview does give good insight into happy coupledom, it also makes clear that there’s no single secret puzzle piece, and of course, no one thing will work for everyone — you have to put in the work no matter what. What IS for sure is that these two are low-key the cutest celeb couple forever.

Do you agree with David’s advice for a successful relationship? Let us know over @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
