Angie Harmon & Jason Sehorn: Married with Children
Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn talk with YourTango about marriage and kids.

What would be your ideal evening together?
AH: Dinner, movie, fabulous hotel. The thing is, we can never get to the hotel because we're always like, "OK, let's get back to see the girls."
JS: The one thing that nobody tells you is that when you have kids, the alone time is taken away. So I'd take her someplace, have dinner, and end up at a hotel. We might get in a helicopter and go to Catalina.

How has having kids changed your relationship?
AH: When you have kids, you have to make a conscious effort to spend time with each other. We have date night. It was so funny—we started holding hands the other day, and it was strange feeling. We're always holding our children's hands, so his big hand felt crazy! We had a good laugh about it.
JS: Having children has opened up new lines of communication. There is so much more to debate. We understand each other's strengths and weaknesses now.

 

What piece of advice would you give a newlywed couple?
AH: Put God at the front of your marriage. Communicate about everything. JS: Understand the other person's strengths and weaknesses. Many people think they're going to change their spouse, and that's a recipe for doom.

What's your biggest difference of opinion?
AH: Watering down juice. We buy juice with less sugar, and I water it down anyway. He thinks I'm robbing our children of flavor. (Laughs.)
JS: I don't think she should care about what other people think. Women are like elephants: They remember everything. Guys just have the here and now; what happened yesterday is gone.

What's the best way to start a fight?
AH: Be a smart-ass.
JS: Be condescending.
