Vanessa Lachey has said that having patience with husband Nick Lachey goes a long way in maintaining their relationship.
The couple married in July 2011 and are currently expecting their first child together later this year.
In an interview with Parade, Vanessa said that she and Nick are sure to communicate and work together to face any difficulties that may arise.
"This whole process is going on in our first year of marriage, which everyone says is the hardest. But for us, we dated each other for five years before we got married so we were comfortable with all of the little things that would normally get into people's way," she explained.
"I think the important thing is patience, communication, understanding, and knowing when you are wrong. We all react and say things but it's all about coming back and saying you're sorry.
"It's about knowing this is the person you will be married to for the rest of your life. There is nothing unforgivable, he is my partner, you know?"
Vanessa recently joked that Nick is nesting more than she is as she is still consumed by work.
