Kyle and Mauricio seem to have done the impossible: Stay married for two decades in Beverly Hills (aka the land of very pricey divorces!)
Many have wondered how they could possibly make it work, and speaking out to Bravo Kyle reveals their recipe for success:
Per Kyle, “I think our biggest bonding time, which is so strange, is when we first wake up in the morning. Because I like to have a little quiet time before I wake the kids up and get them off to school. So that’s when I’ll have my coffee and turn the fireplace on and he’ll come down like 15 minutes later and then we sit and talk… and it’s just our alone time before all the chaos starts.”
The concept of a fire and coffee in the morning with your spouse sounds cozy and romantic – I think they are on to something.
Kyle reveals they also are aware of what they discuss as let’s face it – certain topics can be a certain turn off!
“Well I try to make a point when my husband and I have date night to not just talk about our kids because it’s really easy to do that. We’re obsessed with them. Sometimes even talking business is a connection ’cause I know that my husband likes that, and I know that he likes that I know about that. Also sharing my adventures with him that I know he’s very proud about, so even that can be a weird romantic thing. I know that that sounds strange, but when we’re talking like that and we’re connecting on that level, it’s something that we didn’t have before and it’s fun for me.”
As for Mauricio? He prefers a romantic getaway to their Palm Desert home: “On my God, a quiet easy night with nobody around us. We like to do as little as possible… Well the good news is that the kids are all growing up now. It’s starting to become more of the question of, ‘How do we get them with us?’ It’s starting to change. Now we only have Portia.”
I think the two have a great relationship and wish them nothing but continued success.
