Russell Wilson and Ciara have a seemingly perfect marriage, and now, they’re sharing what has helped them stay in love so passionately.

“God is the center of it all for us. And that’s a foundation for us,” Wilson told GQ. He added, “I think as we get to do everything together, business, life, kids, you know, parenthood, all that stuff, in every one of those categories the center of it is God and our faith.”

Communication is also key to a successful relationship.

Russell explained, “If I don’t communicate to my receiver, he doesn’t know what the play is. It’s like, ‘Uh, hey, what are we doing here?’ It’s probably more significant than that, even, but for us, for me and Ciara, communicating, it’s the same. Demonstrating a way in which he would communicate to his wife, he said, ‘This week’s going to be a challenging week, babe, because I’ve got this responsibility. What about you? What do you have?’ And at the end of every week, we always go through a checklist of questions of, you know, ‘How’d I love you this week?’ ”

Russell also says that both try to be near each other as much as their careers allow.

We love that!
