American actress, dancer, talk show host, and television producer, Kelly Ripa and his actor husband, Mark Consuelos, who have been married for the past 25 years, have shared the secret of their long lasting marriage.
Mark, while attending the wife’s show Live With Kelly and Ryan as a guest co-host, joined his wife in discussing the Scenes From a Marriage, which explores “love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce,”
The secret to their ever-lasting marriage? “Love and sexy time,” Kelly said while revealing the physical way her husband always “settles” their problems.
Giving his own insight on how they have lasted 25 years in their marriage, Mark said that he uses sex to “deal with stress.”
Throwing more light on her husband’s response, Kelly, 50, said that he “takes care” of her problems by giving her what she “needs.”
“I was like, none of this would ever be happening in the Mark Consuelos household, because he would have nipped all of this in the bud immediately.
“He would have been like, ‘Oh, you’re upset? I know how to take care of that. Oh, you don’t feel good about something? I’ll take care of that. Oh, you’re feeling like maybe you’re overworked? I got you. I know what you need.”, Kelly said.
She went further to admit that “Because everything for Mark is settled with – everything is settled with -” The audience laughed and Mark interjected, “Love.” Kelly added, “Love and sexy time.”
Mark in response to what the wife said insisted by saying “Not everything. Not everything!” But she confirmed, “Just about almost everything.”
The couple who met in an audition in 1995 got married the following year, and are blessed with three children.
They both own a New York-based production company, Milojo. In 2014, Kelly was named one of the Most Powerful People in Media by The Hollywood Reporter.
