A happy marriage is about three things - memories of togetherness, the forgiveness of mistakes and a promise to never give up on each other. After all, a marriage is a process of turning every day into a ‘happily ever after’, and falling in love millions of time with the same person. And Bollywood actress, Shilpa Shetty Kundra's 'successful' marriage with Raj Kundra is a perfect example of it!

While many marriages have their own sets of ups and downs, Shilpa and Raj have always set the goals high with their relationship. For Raj, it was love at first sight and had known that Shilpa was going to be his perfect life partner. And he did everything to woo her. The couple had first met in the year 2008 for a business meeting. However during the initial stages, Raj had kept denying the rumours, but when they finally started dating, Shilpa couldn’t hold back her emotions and she had revealed that she is in love with someone.
Today, on November 22, 2019, Shilpa and Raj completed ten years of marriage and frankly, they still radiate newly-married couple's charm. To make the celebrations super special, the actress' dashing husband, Raj made a video for her and Shilpa took to her Instagram to share it. Alongside the video, she wrote, "Okay.. so I was going to post a video I had made but mine sucked when I received this video my husband made for me ..This was way better.. hence posting this one @rajkundra9 isn’t just called my #betterhalf for nothing !! My videos / surprises /presents may not be as good as yours, but I know my LOVE matches up to yours. You always set the benchmark so high (for all the men) What a roller coaster. All the ups and downs. But a joyful ride its been every moment spent ..memorable, cause u are by my side and I will be by yours, always. My Cookie, my soulmate. Thank you for all the love, respect, encouragement and much more.. in this marriage! You are my dream come true."
In the morning, Shilpa had shared a lovely boomerang of sharing a lip-lock with her handsome husband, Raj. Alongside it, she had penned, "Living on Love and Fresh air ... literally, This place is as picturesque as a postcard. Proves nature is at its best when untouched. Not only catching the beautiful autumn colours in Kyoto.. but also caught a kiss in time. Happy Anniversary my Cookie @rajkundra9 .. 10 years !!..and not counting."
Shilpa had revealed the secret to a happy marriage on her show, Super Dancer Chapter 3. She had said, "It's important to have the relationship of friendship in any relationship. I think Raj and I never feel that we are tied to this relationship of marriage. Even now we go on dates on Friday nights, we call each other girlfriend and boyfriend. So, we don't want to feel that burden that we are together just because we are in a marriage. They think they have some pressure so touchwood, that's not there between us."

Shilpa had also revealed the key of a happy marriage, and had stated, “Trust is also a bedrock of any relationship. It's our 10th year now... It's important to grow in any relationship, be it between friends, siblings or partners, otherwise, you outgrow the relationship. It's very important for me that I learn from every relationship that I have with people and I have learnt a lot of things from Raj and even you have to keep upgrading yourself."
In a throwback interview with The Times of India, Shilpa had shared how love has brewed between them. She had stated, “I met Raj at a time in my life where I was riding this wave with the Big Brother success. He lived in London with his parents who had told him about me, ‘Yeh Shilpa Shetty aayee hai aur usne Indians ka naam ooncha kiya hai.’ He came to my hotel and the first thing was that he came and touched my mother’s feet even though he was a Londoner. And that sums up the person he is. He is very respectful and treats my parents like his.” (Don't Miss: Sania Mirza Gives A Glimpse Of Anam Mirza's Wedding Preparations, Izhaan Mirza Malik Seems Excited)
