Even though the couple has claimed that their marriage requires a lot of maintenance behind the scenes, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s relationship seems pretty perfect. The two share a sense of humor, a grounded sense of reality in the crazy world of Hollywood, and two darling daughters — Lincoln and Delta. So we’re happy that Bell took the time to jot down a few critical tips about marriage for the rest of us.

Bell and Shepard first met at a dinner party back in 2007. The first meet-up, in their own words, wasn’t anything to write home about. Bell reportedly told Flare Magazine that it was “not electric.” But the connection grew from that moment, despite the fact that they had completely different upbringings.

That being said, Bell posted a photo on Instagram of some handwritten tips, writing that she felt she could give some “old married woman” wisdom to a few newlyweds.

Bell makes so many good points, we honestly think she should consider writing a book on the subject.

Seriously girl — we’re ready for it when you are!
