Even though Ramona Singer has had her share of spats with the other ladies on The Real Housewives of New York, one relationship in her life has always remained consistent: her happy marriage to her handsome hubby Mario Singer.

In an exclusive interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, Ramona told us what she considers to be the secret to her 19-year marriage.

“Number one,” she said, holding out her thumb, “is trust. Trust is a given. If you don’t have that, you have nothing.” She continued with, “Number two, communication.” So what’s number three? “Keep the love [and] the romance going.” She winked, and said, “Mario likes to make that number one.”

For his part, Mario told us the secret to a long and happy marriage is simple, and only two words long: “Hot sex.”

So that’s all there is! Ramona and Mario make it look easy, that’s for sure.

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
