Rascal Flatts‘ latest single, “Easy,” a duet with pop star Natasha Bedingfield, is about a couple who have broken up but each secretly wish they were back together. Jay DeMarcus and his wife Allison have been married seven years and while Jay doesn’t claim to be an expert at making a relationship work, he has picked up some tips to share along the way.
“You’ve gotta bend without breaking and you’ve gotta be patient and you’ve gotta love each other through the times when both of you can be unlovable,” he said. “And that’s the thing that I think makes marriage last. Two people make a commitment to each other and they don’t fall out of love at the same time.”
Jay also picked up a bit of advice from his pastor. “Don’t marry someone you think you can live with,” Jay shared. “You’ve got to marry the person you can’t live without.”
