Valentine’s day is around the corner and How To Get Away With Murder star, Viola Davis is giving us some advice on keeping the magic alive in our marriage, and shares how husband Julius gave her love affirmations in a unique yet simple way.
PEOPLE asked the Emmy award-winning actress what’s the secret to a long-lasting marriage (the actress has been married to Julius Tennon 13 years)
“It’s about the everyday, I think that, that’s what people forget when they fall in love with someone and it’s exciting. You have to get back to the everyday – the taking the garbage out, the cooking, the cleaning – and it’s something that I think really works with me and my husband,”
The Christian actress went on to share it’s the simple things that are very special before revealing that husband, Julius “just gave me a book. It says, ‘How Do I Love Thee Viola? Confirmations Of Love By Julius.’ I have it in my bag, and I bring it with me every day to work, and each day is another love affirmation.”
