As one of Hollywood's longstanding marriages, it's no secret that Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman value each other and their relationship. And now, the country singer is offering up some sage suggestions for making the most of your marriage.

During a recent Q&A session at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, People reports that the American Idol judge opened up about "being present" and prioritizing his time with his wife Nicole Kidman.

"Let's get the cheesy quote out of the way, right?" Urban joked. "The moment right now is a gift, and that's why they call it the present. But it's so true ... The only thing that's real is right now."

In his mind, "the present" also applies to his marriage, which he insisted must be your priority if it's going to succeed.

"Someone said one time, 'If your marriage isn't your priority, you're not married,' and I thought, for me that's so true. So as long as I keep her as a priority, everything else sort of seems to work. And when I don't keep it as a priority, it's ... Jenga," he said.

He also gushed about how much Kidman helps keep his life in order. "I have a lot of people who help me ... starting with my wife, who is extraordinary at keeping everything sort of scheduled and balanced," he bragged.

It's clear these two have a handle on marital success. Between making one another a priority, living in the moment, and sexting, they know how to keep their love alive and well.
