Date night and coffee on the porch keeps Chip and Joanna Gaines marriage in tact.

Joanna Gaines and husband Chip shared with PEOPLE that they stick to their weekly routine to help maintain their marriage.

“We tend to frequent our local holes-in-the-wall for street tacos and queso,” Joanna Gaines told PEOPLE. “After dinner we get ice cream and drive around Waco to go down memory lane and visit our old stomping grounds.”Joanna Gaines

They also start each day by sharing a cup of coffee on the porch together before the kids wake up. “Marriage requires effort and time and talking and connecting,” shared Joanna. “You have to maintain it.”
