JWOWW and her fiancé, Roger Mathews, have been through a lot together, but the happily-engaged couple never lets anything get them down.

But what are the secrets to their happy relationship? Apparently it’s as simple as driving a car. (Stay with us — Jenni has some great analogies.) In her latest blog post, she explains that “having a happy relationship is as simple as obeying the basic rules of the road,” and there are five key factors to knowing if you’re in a good relationship.

First off, JWOWW says to stop and make time for your relationship, suggesting to even just walk the dog together or do a crossword in bed with your significant other! She says, “It is important to come to a complete stop and nurture the relationship a little each day, no matter how busy life can be.”

Next up, she uses the “do not pass” analogy, explaining that you shouldn’t ever be in competition with your partner or put your needs before your guy or gal’s! “Do not pass means that no one is more important than the other,” she points out.

Jenni goes on to say that you must “obey the speed limit” and live in the moment, not hurrying to get to the future before you’re ready. And even if there’s a “slippery road ahead,” you should “work proactively on challenges, not overreact when life becomes difficult” and learn to deal with accidents.

And what is the last (and most important) rule? “No parking” — aka not getting in a rut and instead keeping your relationship “fresh and exciting.” She suggests changing up your routine and exploring your romantic sides by “reciting love quotes to each other now and then as a reminder of your feelings for one another.” Personally, we’d love to see Roger reciting some Shakespeare to his lady love. Maybe next season on Snooki & JWOWW? We can only hope!
