Jessica Alba reveals secrets of her happy marriage

The actress and her husband make time for each other

They've been married for almost four years and have two daughters and now Jessica Alba has revealed the secrets behind her happy union with producer husband Cash Warren.

The actress and Warren make time with each other, either by going on dates or staying in watching TV together.

'Whether we’re settling into the couch to watch bad reality television" writes the star in her blog for iVillage "or getting a babysitter so we can enjoy a date night out, we always know we have dedicated time after the girls are asleep to catch up, discuss what’s on our minds, and simply just be with each other (no cell phones or e-mail allowed!)

"Often feeling tired after a busy day at work and home" continues Alba "I know how easy it is to take each other for granted or let our relationship sit on the back burner"

The actress also says that couples should not fear routine.
"...making time for our relationship in our daily routine, even though it’s surprisingly predictable and may not seem as spicy as our spontaneous pre-kiddo days, really helps keep the romance alive

"Carving out this alone time is especially important after almost nine years together" concludes Jessica Alba.
