Get Stuff We Love
Former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham and her soccer legend husband, David Beckham knows what it means to support the team.
This may explain why their 18-year marriage continues to be so strong. Of course, part of being a great team player is just anticipating the ball before it even comes your way.
As Victoria told Elle UK in the upcoming May issue, she knows David will always have her back. "During fashion week, when I'm working, the children will be in New York and he's already planned to take them to museums, then out for dinner on Saturday night, so he is very good at that sort of thing, as am I," she said.
"That's how you can show your support in a marriage," she added. "By saying, 'You know what, I've got this.' That’s what makes a good partnership."
As is just finding time for one another no matter how busy you may be.
"David and I both respect that each of us are very, very busy; we are both running big businesses, but we do put the phones down, and sometimes we just talk," she said.
David also had kind words to say about their team partnership, noting in an interview on BBC Radio's "Desert Island Discs" in January: "We're a strong family unit. We've got strong parents. We were brought up with the right values," he said. "Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times. It's about working through it."
And Victoria says she has the benefit of all 42 years of her experience now, to better understand what makes not just them work as a couple, but herself as an individual.
"When I look back at my past self, [the way I dressed and behaved] was probably a sign of my insecurities," she said. "I feel quite confident in myself now — getting older doesn't bother me."
