Singer/actor Justin Timberlake — who’s engaged to actress Jessica Biel — has recently revealed what he thinks about marriage, calling it a “team effort”.
The star admitted he wants to have a successful marriage just like his mother and stepfather have and believes it takes two to make a happy relationship.
“I think it’s important to remember that you go into something like marriage knowing that you don’t know very much about it at all,” he said. “But I do look at the marriage of my mother and stepdad, and what makes it work for them is that it’s a team effort.”
“Some days are better than other days for all of us – and if we have our good days and bad days individually, and then we’re dealing with someone else’s good and bad days on top of that, it’s going to add up. My mother is a ball of fire in the world and I love that about her. But what I have learned from my stepdad is something as important, which is patience and compassion. Because when you are living with someone else, those two qualities go a long way.”
