Out of all of the ‘90s pop tart singers, who had ever thought that Christina Aguilera, who famously flaunted butt-less chaps during her Dirrty phase, would be the one to end up in a happy, 5-year marriage? But, while the marital unions of fellow singers Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson have long since crashed and burned, Christina and her husband, Jordan Bratman, are still going strong.
In fact, the singer can’t help bragging about their relationship in the new issue of British Cosmopolitan and dishing out a little advice to those not as lucky in love as she is. (That means you, Britney and Jess!)

"Marriage unites you and makes you official, but it didn't change our relationship. All the things like wanting to work hard and play hard - they were always important to us," she said, reports US Magazine. "We've been married for five years now, and I think the secret is in always keeping it interesting. You have to make time for yourselves."
Christina definitely keeps it interesting, if the tabloids are to be believed. Supposedly, she and Jordan still partake in "Naked Sundays", even with their 2-year-old son Max hanging around, and have sex in their pool that’s so loud that it wakes the neighbors. Christina also takes advantage of the fact that her lips are always coated in her trademark, blood red lipstick:
"I leave little lipstick marks on the bathroom mirror for when he wakes up, and little notes written in lipstick on the mirror and in the shower. Little notes, little cards, little 'I love yous' here and there, just to keep things fun and alive." Christina Aguilera Feels Sexier As Mom
Still, Christina admits that a marriage can’t be all fun and games.
“It's important to be open to growing together, and when the going gets tough, you have to see how you can make your relationship more special and how you can spend more quality time together," she adds. "Everyone has rough patches, everybody grows and we all change. It's important to give each other room to grow and to accept them for who they are."
