Candice Accola may not be married to fiance Joe King just yet (but possibly soon?), but that doesn’t mean she can’t get a little reading in on the subject of holy matrimony. The Vampire Diaries star recently took to Instagram to reveal where she’s getting her “healthy marriage” advice.


Candice is reading I Like You Just The Way I Am, a memoir by fellow actress Jenny Mollen — perhaps best known for her role as Nina Ash on Angel. Candice posted a photo of herself reading the book, along with the caption: “Marriage advice from @jennyandteets2 ‘In a healthy marriage there is stability, security, & individual packs of Pirates Booty’ #preach #ilyjtwia.”

By all accounts, the book is brutally honest about the trials and tribulations of Jenny’s life, from her relationships with her loved ones and therapist to life with husband Jason Biggs to that time she threw the worst bachelorette party ever. We wonder if Candice has taken note of the book’s self-description as “about not doing the right thing.” Eh, we’re sure Candice will be fine!

Candice and Joe announced their engagement last May, and have been filling social media and beyond with their adorableness ever since: making out in a video for Joe’s band The Fray, taking dance lessons for Candice’s birthday, and jumping into freezing cold water with all of their clothes on for the hell of it. Yeah, something tells us these two are going to be OK — even if they run out of individual packs of Pirate’s Booty.
