How To Have A Happy Marriage According To Frank & Claire Underwood From “House Of Cards” (Spoiler Alert!)

A Guide To A Happy Marriage According To Frank & Claire Underwood From "House Of Cards" (Spoiler Alert!)

It’s official. Frank and Claire Underwood are officially my favorite married couple currently on TV. “House of Cards”‘ calculating vice president (played by Kevin Spacey) and his powerful and beautiful wife (played by Robin Wright) are proof that the couple that lies, schemes and smokes together, stays together, by any means necessary. Netflix just debuted the second season of the Washington, D.C., drama over the weekend and if you’re as obsessed as I am, you’ve already finished watching all 13 episodes. By god, should I ever get married someday, please let my relationship be as committed and focused as this one. After all, the most successful and long lasting partnerships are between people who bring out the good best in each other. Here’s a guide to how to have a completely non-traditional, sexy and ruthless marriage just like Frank and Claire Underwood. (Be warned: this post contains spoilers about season two.)

1. Be in love. It sounds obvious, but if Frank and Claire didn’t love each other more than anyone else, they would have nothing.
