If Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that marriage is tricky. But things seem to be going well for X Factor host Mario Lopez  and his new bride Courtney Mazza. And according to Courtney, it has everything to do with his spontaneity.

People reports that Mario likes to keep the romance alive by "taking off for a quick trip or having little quickies here and there. Kids and jobs and everything else gets in the way, but you can't forget about each other," Mario said.

But don’t think that Mario is the only romantic one in this marriage. "The most romantic thing about my wife is the meals she cooks when I come home."

Dinner is great, but there’s a twist: "My grandma did tell me to cook for him in nothing but an apron and stilettos,” Courtney said. Well, that’s one way to keep thing spicy.

However, this couple has never had a problem with keeping things interesting. Courtney still remembers their first kiss: "Oh, yeah, I remember it. He pounced me!"

So maybe the trick is always having the spice in the first place? Regardless, we think it's safe to say that aprons and stilettos never hurt.
