Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth may or may not be planning to wed anytime soon, but when they do finally decide to walk down the aisle, at least they have a couple of great role models to look up to.

Cyrus’s parents are celebrating 24 years of marriage, prompting the pop star to take to Instagram to congratulate mom and dad, Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, on their December 29 anniversary with a #FlashbackFriday.

"Happy anniversary to my cute ass parents! Love u @tishcyrus @billyraycyrus,” Miley commented.

Although the throwback photo was from years ago (peep that '80s-esque hair), you could have fooled us. Billy Ray posted a recent photo to commemorate the day, and the photos look minutes apart.

“Celebratin’ 24 years of marriage with my love @tishcyrus,” the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer captioned it.

Maybe the two have found a fountain of youth, or maybe it’s all the love keeping them young. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for this couple, but the pair always seem to find each other again.

Billy Ray filed for divorce back in 2010, but dropped the filing in 2011. Two years later, Tish filed for divorce, but with the help of couples therapy they decided to make it work.

"We both woke up and realized we love each other and decided we want to stay together. We both went into couples therapy, something we haven't done in 22 years of being together, and it's brought us closer together and really opened up our communication in amazing ways," Billy Ray's rep previously told Us Weekly.

Billy Ray and Tish have even passed their relationship knowledge down to daughter Miley. The 24-year-old opened up in the September issue of Cosmopolitan about the life lessons they taught her.

“Nothing and no one stays the same,” she told the mag. “Grow, evolve, change with each other and celebrate your love’s journey!”

Clearly she was listening. Miley told Billboard a few months back she and Hemsworth had grown and changed so much since their initial 2013 engagement they pretty much had to start over.

“I needed to change so much," she said. "And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard. Suddenly you’re like, 'I don’t recognize you anymore.' We had to refall for each other."

With wisdom and advice like this, we expect a lot of love for the Cyrus couples.
