Dr. Mehmet Oz is not only a successful heart surgeon, author, and daytime television host, he's a VERY successful husband!
The Dr. Oz Show host and his wife, Lisa, have been married for an incredible 26 years.
While they admit they have their fair share of fights, they can't deny that even after over a quarter of a century, their marriage is as strong as ever, saying:
"We're pretty much like any other couple. We fight—a lot—and there are times when we’re bored with each other…Whenever he’s doing something that’s driving me crazy, I think about one of his traits I absolutely adore. For example, I’m insatiable when it comes to being with him, so my main complaint is that we never have enough time together. The positive side of that is I love how open and available he is to other people who need him.”
They may have learned to accept each others differences and focus on the positives over the negatives, but the real secret to their success seems to be what to many other relationships lack — good sex! In fact, Dr. Oz even prescribes it, saying:
"My prescription for sex is to have it as much as possible!"
Ha! But how much is "as much as possible"? Dr. Oz says two or three times a week, while Lisa thinks a much higher quota should be met (6 times a week).
Not only is sex great for your relationship, but it's great for your health too! The 51-year-old doctor shares:
“Sex helps you live longer. It’s been scientifically proven that twice a week equals three more years of life.”
If a couple is having issues in the bedroom, Lisa suggests addressing it right away, explaining:
"It's much hard to reignite a flame once it’s dead. You have to make intimacy a regular part of your life.”
Of course, a little romance doesn't hurt either. After all, you need to get your partner in the mood first, right?
When Dr. Oz won an Emmy for his show last year, he worked this smooth little line into his acceptance speech, saying:
"Lisa isn't just the woman of my dreams; she is the woman who made all my dreams come true."
Who said chivalry is dead?
