zoe saldana and marco peregoThere's love and then there's the sort of love that abandons all reason and convention. Zoe Saldana is living that type of dream romance with her husband Marco, who ended up changing his name from Perego to Saldana. The backlash over his decision seems so silly to me. As Zoe pointed out, women change their surnames all of the time without anyone blinking an eye. The Saldanas (sounds so sweet!) are the couple we all want to be. We can learn a few lessons in love from their beautiful marriage. Let me count the ways.

For a marriage or relationship to have longevity, you have to be on the same page about important life issues. Zoe and Marco agree about making sure their family is safe and vaccinated, but it doesn't have to be that serious. It could be as trivial as agreeing on when laundry day should be. Actually, cleaning dirty underwear can be pretty serious too!

The Latina actress makes sure to protect her relationship by not sharing too many details. This way the outside world can't judge on their love or add their negative energy into the relationship. The same applies in our lives. This is a sure way to keep the metiches out!

Having a spark in the bedroom and knowing how to keep it is key. Saldana told Cosmo for Latinas, "To be uninhibited. I'm not talking about bringing in a third person or watching porn all night: That's what leads people to believe they are amazing in bed when they're the worst ever. Pornography is not sex education--it's the opposite! Don't allow insecurities to close you off. Be creative."

In 2014, Mr. Saldana decided to honor his loving wife by getting her face tatttoed on his arm. Now this won't be easy to hide or laser off if they split one day! That type of devotion is priceless--and applies to all relationships, even it doesn't involve permanent ink! "It was the most romantic thing! I didn't stop him, but I did sort of try to talk him out of it," the actress told People

Marco sees his wife as his equal and is willing to go to great lengths to prove it. He recently changed his last name from Perego to Saldana. She told InStyle, "I told him, 'If you use my name, you're going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.' " His response was, "'Ah, Zoe, I don't give a s**t.'" Pretty romantic!
