Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been married for 24 years and the couple are often asked what is the secret a a long and happy marriage.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, Tim says, “I think the best advice I heard for a long marriage was from Harrison Ford, he was talkin’ about being married to Callista Flockhart for so long, and he said, ‘Well, I’ve learned to say the least amount of words that you can possibly say to keep yourself out of trouble.’”

So, in addition to communication and respect and honesty, Tim says, “I’d probably go along with that advice.”

The couple will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this fall, on October 6th.
