Danica McKellar Shares Tips For A Successful Marriage

By Movieguide® Contributor

Danica McKellar’s secret for a successful marriage? “Be willing to put in the work.”

“I think the key to any good relationship is not expecting it to be a fairy tale every day and to be willing to put in the work, to be willing to look at what your own expectations are,” the actress told Fox News. 

McKellar continued, “When you’re feeling frustrated with something, with a situation, find your part in it. Always. Always. Come to any conversation when there’s conflict with, well, here’s what I could have done better. Always search for it. Hunt for it. Because that’s what you want your partner to do, too, right?”

McKellar and husband, Scott Sveslosky, recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of their first date. The couple tied the knot in 2014.

“Exactly 10 years ago, Scott and I met and ever since, I’ve felt like the luckiest woman on the planet!!” the WONDER YEARS star wrote on Instagram. “Thank you Scott, for being the best husband and partner I ever could have dreamed of. I love you so much and all our adventures together. Here’s to many more decades ahead!”

In a 2019 interview, McKellar called Sveslosky “a great partner — sweet, supportive, loving.” 

“We each brought a child into our marriage — Hunter’s 14, and my son Draco is 8,” she continued. “We’re raising them alongside each other. Watching their friendship develop, they just play and have so much fun. What a blessing!”

Movieguide® previously reported on the couple’s relationship:

McKellar’s husband is an attorney but often partners with McKellar as the couple come up with new movie ideas. 

“Back in 2017, I told my husband that I wanted to play a math teacher in a movie, and he wrote the story for a movie that ended up being called CAMPFIRE KISS, and I did that for Hallmark,” she shared with PEOPLE. “More recently, I said, ‘I really want to dance in a movie,’ and he wrote this story.’” That came to fruition through SWING INTO ROMANCE, which premiered earlier this month.

“He’s not a writer! He’s a lawyer. He just is good at putting together ideas when I really want to do something. And it’s just fun to have that knowledge that he’s a part of this,” McKellar explained
